Bredesen, Selma (1866? - 21 FEB 1943)

Mrs. Selma Bredesen, 76, a former resident of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), died at 1:40 o’clock Sunday morning, Feb. 21, 1943, at Luther Hospital, Eau Claire, where she had been taken a week ago.

Mrs. Bredesen, who was visiting her sons and daughter in Eau Claire, Greenwood, and Altoona since November, had planned to return to her home in Spokane, Wash., two weeks ago, but became ill and a week later was taken to the hospital.

Before going to Spokane 22 years ago, Mrs. Bredesen resided on the present Jordan farm in the west city limits. She was preceded in death by her husband in 1940 and a daughter, Elsie, in 1918.

Surviving are three daughters, Mrs. A.H. (Mathilda) Anderson, Eau Claire, and Mrs. John (Dagny) Peterson and Mrs. Dell (Emma) Timmerson, both of Spokane, Wash.; three sons, Ed Bredesen, Altoona; Leo Bredesen, Greenwood, and William Bredesen, Spokane, Wash.; one sister, Mrs. John Thornton, and a brother, Alfred Kirstianson, Stanley; 20 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.

The body was sent this morning from Eau Claire to Spokane, Wash., where funeral services and interment will take place Tuesday.
