Sydney Rosengren Dies After Brief Illness
Last Friday morning at his home in Choteau occurred the death of Sydney W. Rosengren, for the past seven years section foreman in the employ of the Great Northern Railway Co., and highly respected citizen of the community.
Mr. Rosengren was taken ill just a week before his death and was thought last Thursday night to be improving. Complications arose, however, which affected his heart and hastened the end.
Sydney W. Rosengren was born Nov. 5, 1886, at Kerkhoven, Minn., and died Oct. 20, 1922 at the age of 35 years, 11 months and 15 days. Twenty four years of his life he spent in the employ of the Great Northern Railway Company, starting as a helper in Minnesota while still a very young boy. He came to Montana in 1907 and to the position in Choteau, which he held at the time of his death.
Sept. 5, 1915, he was married to Frances Carlson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John A. Carlson, pioneers of the Burton bench. To this union were born two sons, Norman August, aged 4, and Harfield Sydney, aged 7 months, who beside their mother, survive. He is also survived by his father, C.A. Rosengren of Kerkhoven, Minn. and a sister, Mrs. Charles Swanson, of Kingsbury, Calif.
Since coming to Choteau Mr. Rosengren had by his exemplary conduct and friendly, straightforward manner, gained and held the sincere esteem not only of those with whom he was closely associate, but of all with whom he came in contact. He was a willing and capable worker in fraternal circles and was a member of Choteau lodge No. 44, A.F. and A.M. Teton Chapter No. 25, Bethany Commandry, No. 19, K.T., Fedelity Chapter No. 18, O.E.S., Choteau lodge No. 11, I.O.O.F., and Queen Rebekah lodge.
Rev. Harry T. Stong, pastor of the Methodist church, preached the funeral sermon at the church Monday afternoon where the body had been taken under escort of the members of Choteau Lodge No. 11, I.O.O.F. Burial was made in Choteau cemetery. The impressive Masonic burial service was used at the grave.
