From The Wolbach Messenger, Wolbach, Nebraska, June 14, 1934, transcribed by Linda Berney:

Death Angel Calls Mrs. Andersen – Wolbach and community was saddened Monday by the death of Mrs. Chris Andersen, who passed away at the St. Francis Hospital early that morning. Mrs. Andersen who has been a sufferer from anemia for several years had been in unusually good health for some time and was again taking an active part in church and lodge affairs which she had dropped on account of ill health and was assisting in the preparation of the Alumni banquet when she became ill. She was taken to the hospital Sunday morning but passed away early Monday from heart failure.

OBITUARY – Carrie Mathiesen Andersen was born in Vieberg, Denmark, September 18, 1882 and died June 11, 1934, aged 51 years, 9 months and 23 days. In 1892 she came to America to make her home and has lived practically in or near Wolbach during this entire time.

In February, 1901 she was united in marriage to Martinus H. Mathiesen and to this union three children were born, Mae Johnson, residing near Wolbach, Martinus who passed away in 1922, and a little girl that died in infancy. On July 31, 1909 her husband Martinus H. Mathiesen died in Omaha of Typhoid Fever.

On January 6, 1917 she was again united in marriage, this time to Chris M. Andersen to which one son was born, Harvey C. whom she leaves together with Mae Johnson and Hans A. Mathiesen of Lincoln, Hans being a step son whom she raised as her own; and also the following brothers and sisters to mourn her death: Chris Madsen of Amelia, Nebr.; Catherine Lowe of Hollister, Idaho, Sena Miner of Broken Bow, Nebr.; Marie Kitch of Grand Island, Nebr.; Eva Christensen of Wolbach; Mabel Waddell of Joliet, Montana; and Peter and Will Madsen of Wolbach.

In infancy she was consecrated in baptism and in early life was confirmed in the Lutheran Church and was a charter member of Wolbach Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church. She was always a loyal and faithful worker in and for the Church. She was a member of the church choir and served in various capacities as an officer in church organizations for many years being president of the Ladies Auxiliary which office she held at the time of her death. Because of her loyalty and fidelity to her Lord she has been a pillar of strength in her congregation. We thank God for the memory of a life that leaves behind it such radiance and purity.

Largely attended funeral services were conducted by Rev. Rhine in Trinity Lutheran Church Wednesday afternoon. Pall bearers were Torval Andersen, Andrew Andersen, Edwin Johnson, Joe Johnson, Jacob Hansen and Hans Hansen. Friends and relatives attending from a distance were: Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Miner and son Verdin of Broken Bow; Mrs. Max Waddell of Joliet, Montana; Mr. and Mrs. Bart F. Andersen and son of Council Bluffs, Iowa; Mr. and Mrs. Hans A. Mathiesen and children and Mr. and Mrs. Alonzo Wibbels of Lincoln; Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Kitch of Grand Island; Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Hansen of Osceola; and Miss Mae Livings of Davenport. The deep felt sympathy of the entire community is extended to the sorrowing family in their great loss.
