Kvool, Orel A. (19 OCT 1916 - 16 SEP 1922)

The first auto accident with fatal results to occur in our vicinity happened about four o'clock last Saturday afternoon, when a Ford touring car driven by Mrs. H. G. Kvool with their two little daughters riding in the rear seat, ran off the road and tipped over on its side. Little Orel was crushed beneath the car. The scene of the accident was on the hill near Aaron Johnson's farm in the town of Cleveland, Jackson Co., Wis. Word was phoned into the village (Humbird, Clark County, Wis.) immediately and several car loads went out to render assistance.

Orel Anabel Kvool was born in Humbird Oct. 19, 1916, died on Saturday, Sept. 16, 1922, aged nearly six years. So brief a span of life; and yet how full. Happy childhood: ye know not what the years have in store. One sees the father's and mother's happy smile as the little ones run to meet them, and the loving arms around the neck and the little hug as they are picked up and kissed. Tenderly they are watched over through infancy and nursery days. And then school, and with proud hearts, yet with a yearning for the baby that is growing up, the fond parents see them marching off to school. Little Orel commenced her school days this fall, which were to be so few. A beautiful tribute is her given by Pastor Coram, who officiated at the funeral services:

"Sadness came to our community when the accidental death of Mr. and Mrs. Herman G. Kvool's younger daughter Orel was announced on Saturday of last week, not only the parents of the child but all who knew the little one fet that they had missed something very dear out of their life and mourned sincerely her untimely death. She was a beautiful, attractive little girl, a real pal to her father and a comfort to her mother. She had a lovely, affectionate disposition that endeared her to all, especially to her playmates. A laughing, happy child, with sunshine in her heart. She will be missed by her playmates, but oh, how she will be missed in the home. Her happy spirit is now among the angels of God, where the sun never sets, where eternal joys are hers. Safe in the arms of Jesus, safe on His gentle breast. To the sorrowing family the deepest sympathy goes out, with the heartfelt prayer that God in His goodness may comfort them as He alone can."

Burial service was held at the home on Tuesday afternoon at 2:30, and was attended by many sympathizing friends. School was dismissed and all business places were closed during the service. Many relatives from away were present. A profusion of beautiful flowers, silent expressions of sympathy from many friends, covered the casket. Interment was in the Mentor Cemetery.

The heartbroken parents, and their daughter Doris, have gone to Wilson to be with their home folks for a few days before again assuming the duties of life.

Herman Kvool was a great uncle of my husband Charles Kvool, son of Norman Kvool, grandson of Ben Kvool. I wasn't aware of this bit of history.

Herman Kvool was my grandfather, his son James Edward Kvool now known as James Hall(sister of Orel ) is my father. I was five years old when Grandpa Herman passed on. I was somewhat close to Carl & Doris Kvool King and last saw Joyce Kvool Utley in 2001 at the funeral of her husband Ed.
