Veeder, Frank (30 DEC 1864 - 4 JAN 1908)

Died, at his home at Eidsvold, Clark County, Wis., on Saturday, Jan. 4, 1908, Frank Veeder, of Bright's disease, aged 43 years and 5 days.

Frank Veeder was born at Skaleoslan, Sweden, on Dec. 30, 1864, and at the age of 17 immigrated to this country, arriving in Chicago in 1881. Later he went to Elgin, Ill., where in 1885 he was united in marriage with Miss Hattie Carlson. In 1898 he moved to Eidsvold, where he resided until his death. Mr. Veeder was an expert workman with cement and plaster, which profession he followed until illness overtook him. The disease first manifest itself nearly three years ago, since which time he has been a patient sufferer, but always remained hopeful of gradual improvement, but such was not to be. His cheerful disposition, his devotion to his wife and family, and kindness to everybody will long linger as a fragrant memory in the home which death has now darkened. Though he is gone his record has been made and will remain as a lasting treasure. His life was gentle, but like the still waters it was deep. In his heart of hearts he carried those he loved, and his hand was never weary, his step never failed in caring for and ministering to those who were in any way dependent upon him.

The funeral services were held at the Norwegian Church at Eidsvold at 2 p.m. on Monday. Mr. Moen, a student from St. Olaf's College, officiating, in the enforced absence of the regular pastor, interment taking place in the cemetery one mile east of Stanley. He leaves a devoted wife and three children, Mrs. Peter Flora and Ernest and Allen, who have the sympathy of a large circle of friends in their great bereavement; also two sisters and one brother, who reside at Elgin, Ill., his brother, Charles Veeder and both brothers-in-law being present at the funeral.
