      Mrs. P. M.

Hagberg, Mrs. C. Hagberg, Mrs. B. Rosenberg, Mrs. Wm. Gustafson, Mrs. F. G. Sundberg, Mrs. John Olson and Mrs. A. G. Lagerquist. It was the intention to give the lady a surprise last night but the ladies found out that in company with Mr. Lagerquist she was going to the lake to spend a week, they concluded to made the presentation before she left.

      Mrs. Carrie Lagerquist, widow of the late P. M. Lagerquist and one of the best known pioneer residents of the city, died at her home in the Lagerquist block, So. 6th St., Friday afternoon, August 7, 1906, after a lingering illness. Mrs. Lagerquist had been in poor health the past ten years and had been confined to her bed since May 16th last. In fact since her return this spring from California, where she went last fall in the hope of renewed health she has been confined to her room and bed most of the time. In May she was taken sick at the residence of her sister, Mrs. W. F. Dieckhaus, and remained there until about two weeks ago when she was removed to her own home. Her sufferings were intense toward the latter part of her last illness, which was from pernicious anemia.
      The funeral will be held from the family residence, Lagerquist block, at 2:00 Monday afternoon and from the First Congregational church, of which she was a charter member and always an active worker, at 2:30. The funeral services will be conducted by Rev. Dr. Moorehouse, after which she will be laid to rest beside her husband and daughter and other relatives in Evergreen cemetery.
      Carrie Peterson was born in Varmland, Sweden, May 9, 1856, and came to America with her parents in 1869, settling in Wright county, Minn., in 1871. She was married in Brainerd on Dec. 12, 1874 to Peter M. Lagerquist, who died Oct. 27, 1901. To them two children were born, Jennie Esther, who died Nov. 24, 1898, at the age of 23 and Charles Arthur, who resides in Brainerd. She also adopted her little grand-daughter, Gladys after the death of Mrs. Arthur Lagerquist when Gladys was an infant. She also leaves three sisters and one brother, Mrs. B. Rosenberg, Mrs. W. F. Dieckhaus, Mrs. K. W. Lagerquist and John H. Swanson, all of whom are residents of Brainerd.
      Mrs. Lagerquist was a woman of sterling Christian character whose friends were only limited by the number of her acquaintances and who was known and respected by all the earlier settlers of Brainerd. (Brainerd Daily Dispatch, 08 August 1908, p. 5, c. 1) [Contributed by John Van Essen]
