Mr. Thompson was born at Vestre Toten, Norway, Nov. 27, 1847 and immigrated to America in 1869. He was united in marriage to Anna Tonette Fosheim from Gulbrandadalen, Norway in 1877. With his wife he located in La Crosse, Wis., later in Neillsville and Greenwood, Clark County, Wis. His wife died Aug. 26, 1922.

He is survived by one sister, Mrs. O. Lowe of Neillsville and two brothers in Norway. Funeral services were held at the United Lutheran Church in Greenwood, Friday afternoon, June 29th, Rev. M.K.

In his death we fully and keenly realize our loss. He was a true friend and his devotion to those he loved would make a bright chapter in any life. While he has gone from scenes, the conflicts, the sorrows and pleasures of life, he will still live in the hearts of those who knew him best
