Oleson, Anna (Dec 1857 - 19 June 1904)
Mrs. Anna Oleson, wife of John Oleson died very sudden at her home in this Village (Unity) last Sunday Morning. Deceased has been afflicted with consumption (TB) for some time and after a severe coughing spell which caused a hemorrhage of the lungs she passed away.
She is survived by a husband and three small children, Gerda, Hilburt, and Olga, the oldest 11 and the youngest 4 years of age.
The husband was at Park Falls at work at the time of his wife’s death and arrived home on the limited the following morning.
The funeral was held from the M. E. Church Tuesday, after which the remains were interred in the Scandinavian cemetery.
The sorrowing relatives have the sincere sympathy of this community in their sad affliction.
**Researcher's note - counting backwards that would mean she died June 19,1904.
Researcher's note - could this mean the Trinity Lutheran (Scandinavian) in Unity??? I looked and she is not listed.
