Owen, Olive (8 NOV 1881 - 14 MAR 1921)

There are many here who will remember Olive Owen, daughter of Rev. T. Grafton Owen, and will sorrow to know that she died on March 14th, 1921, at a hospital in Brooklyn, N.Y., where she had been since the 13th of Jan. Her health had been poor for a long time, and several times she had severe spells of sickness from which she came near death, but with a brave spirit and indomitable courage, she worked on.

Olive was born at Trempealeau, Wis., Nov. 8, 1881, being the daughter of T. Grafton and Margaret Owen. Several years of her childhood were spent here, and her brave, merry, daring spirit made her loved by all who knew her. When the family moved back to Arcadia, she completed her high school course there and took a thorough business course. She had a very keen mind and was talented along several different lines. Most of the time she was associated in a business way with publishing companies in the east, but wrote brilliantly on a wide variety of subjects, leaving a rich fund of beautiful and cheering thoughts, wonderful indeed, for one who suffered so much.

She leaves four sisters: Mrs. Eunice Hensel, Whitehall; Mrs. Nina Achison, Seattle; Mrs. May Parson, Bellingham, Wash.; Mrs. Hallie Tanish, Racine, Wis., and one brother, Judge Asa K. Owen, Phillips, Wis. Her remains will be brought back to Trempealeau and buried beside her father there.
