Mrs. Mike Ingerslev's sister, Mrs. Anders Andersen, died at her home on a farm near Herman at 11:30 last Friday morning, following an operation for appendicitis that was performed some five weeks before. She seemed to improve for a time, but gradually grew worse and medical skill was unable to save her.

The funeral was held at the Methodist church in Herman at 1 o'clock Sunday afternoon, Rev. N.P. Lang, of this city, officiating. Burial was made in the Blair cemetery and a daughter, Maren, who died at the age of seven years, who was buried in the Kennard cemetery, will be brought here and laid by the side of the mother.

Maren Madsen was born in Fyn, Denmark, August 6th, 1868, so was not quite 56 years of age. She came to this country with her mother (Annie Jensen?, see entry for Peter Jr. below)) and stepfather, Peter Madsen, at the age of 18 years. They made their home in this city and she was married here to Anders Andersen October 6th, 1888. They lived on a farm near Kennard for a time, later on a farm near Herman, where death found her.

Two children survive her, Marie and Arthur W., both living at home. Besides her husband and sister, Mrs. Ingerslev, she leaves one brother, Peter Madsen, Jr., of Seattle, Wash., and her mother and stepfather, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Madsen, Sr., of Boone, Ia.

N.P. Lang, of Blair, and the singers of Herman, and all who sent the beautiful floral offerings in her memory.
