Funeral Friday #9 ~ Mrs. Theodore Larson

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 obit, more than likely, was originally printed in a newspaper in northern Minnesota.

  1. how sad....I wonder if the funeral was on the day her sister was suppose to get married (assuming the sister would have postponed her wedding).

  2. Hi Mary and lindalee,

    I do not know if it happened on the day of the wedding or not, hopefully one day I will have more detail to update the information on this!
