Mrs. P.O. Nelsestuen passed away last Friday, February 10th at her daughter’s home, Mrs. Tillie Twesme in Bear Creek.

The deceased was born in Beir/Biri Norway and was united in marriage in 1867 to Peter O. Nelsestuen and immigrated to this country in 1860 and settled on a farm in French Creek at which place they made their home until after the death of her husband who preceded her seven years ago.

To this union were born five boys and three girls. Mrs. Nelsestuen was a fond and loving wife and mother and was the mother of a large and gifted family many of whom now have “silver threads among the gold.” Her home instincts were strong and her affection for friends and kindred was tender and abiding.

1. Ole P of Thief River Falls, Minnesota;
2. Mrs. Tillie (Sever) Twesme of Ettrick;
