Mrs. Caroline Risedorph passed away at the home of her daughter, Mrs. W. R. Jarrell in Seattle, Friday evening, February 2, at 6 o'clock, after a brief illness.

Services were held Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Arthur Wright & Sons mortuary. The services were conducted by the Church of Christ Scientist, of which she was a member, the Women's Relief Corps assisting.

Mrs. Risedorph was born in Washington, Ohio, January 8, 1859, where she grew to womanhood. On April 24, 1867, she married John E. Risedorph, making her home in LaSuer, Minnesota, until 1880, when they moved to Kingsburg, S. D., where they lived nearly 10 years. The family later moved to Arkansas and from there came to Seattle, Washington, over 40 years ago. Her husband, John E. Risedorph, who will be remembered by many old-timers in this section, preceded her 21 years. Since the death of her husband she has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. W. R. Jarrell in Seattle. For the past five years she has been a resident of Kent, making her home with her daughter-in-law, Mrs. Mabel Risedorph, and made many friends who loved and respected her. Her friends declare that to know her was an inspiration to live a better life and they tried to live up to her high ideals.

She was an active member of Stevens Relief Corps of Seattle for 38 years, and served as president several times...

...She is survived by one daughter, Mrs. W. R. Jarrell of Seattle, one sone, W. E. Risedorph of St. Paul, Minn., seven grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

The body was cremated in accordance with her request."
