Bye, Maris (Marie?) (1816 - 8 MAR 1908)

The burial of the aged Mrs. Maris Bye took place Tuesday from the home of her son-in-law, Mr. Sever Aalbu, Rev. Svanoe officiating. The venerable old lady who died last Sunday afternoon, was sick but a few days. She reached the age of 92 years, being born at Meraker, near Drontheim, Norway, 1816. She descended from a prominent and distinguished family, some of her ancestors occupying the rank of major and vice admiral in the Dano-Norwegian navy. As the features of the dear old lady showed this noble peerage, so also her character was that of a true Christian woman, who had learned to love and long for that home up yonder, to which she now has passed. Of her four children, two survive her, Mrs. Sever Aalbu, with whom she lived for the last thirteen years, and Mr. Jonas Bye of Los Angeles, Calif. She was laid to rest in the Greenwood Cemetery.
