Funeral Friday #5 ~ Andrew Holman Obit

Since I have scanned so many funeral cards and obituary's lately I have decided to post these items on Fridays, hence the title Funeral Friday. Some of these may not actually pertain to my family, however I wish to share what I have as they may be helpful to someone. Unfortunately, most of the newspaper obits do not list a date of print nor the title of the newspaper. I will try to give location and dates that may be helpful as I can.

This may have been printed in the Wadena Pioneer Journal, exact date unknown, abt. 1957.

Andrew Holman

Andrew Holman, 87 an old time resident of Wadena County, died at Shady Lane Rest Home last Sunday, the immediate cause of death being cancer. Funeral Services were held Tuesday afternoon, at the Folkestad Funeral Home, Rev. Manlove officiating, and interment was made in the West Lyons Cemetery.

Mr. Holman was born May 29, 1870, in Norway to John and Gertrude Holman, and farmed for a great many years here. He was united in marriage with Miss Nina Torgeson at Dalton, Minn., June 29, 1893, she having preceded him in death.

Surviving sons and daughters are: John, Wheelock, N.D.; Ole and Ted, both of Verndale; Mrs. Hulda Buckley, Wadena; Mrs. Andrew Schimpp, Staples; Mrs. Fritz Hindahl, Staples, and Mrs. Frank Marshall, Norfolk, Neb.

As far as I am aware at this time, Andrew Holman does not fit in my family tree.

Thanks for stopping by!

 Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
