Funeral services for Mrs. John Swenson, whose death was chronicled in the Phonograph last week, were held at the home last Thursday afternoon by Rev. Zimmerman and Rev. Olson of Unity. Internment was made in the Rockford, Ill. Cemetery Saturday, April 16th. Mr. John Swenson and son, Evar, grand children, Ernest and Erlan, Mrs. Victor Frane and F. W. Lulloff, funeral director, attended the funeral at Rockford.

Mrs. John Swenson, whose maiden name was Eda Marie Carlson, was born March 13, 1874, thus reaching the age of fifty-eight years and one month. She was married to John Swenson in 1894 and they came to the United States in 1900, moving directly to Rockford, Ill. They came to this locality in 1919. During the time Mrs. Swenson lived here, she was a practical nurse and had a large number of friends. There were two children but one died in 1918 at the age of twenty-one years. Besides her husband her death - which occurred April 12, flu being the cause of her departure to the distant shore - is mourned by one son, Evar, four sisters and one brother, namely: Mrs. H. T. Sward, Beloit; Mrs. R. Leksell, Mrs. A. Umlander, Mrs. O. Fait, Rockford, Illinois; Mr. Ernest Franseen, Chicago. Also five grand children.

The deceased was of a strong Christian character and spent most of her time for the benefit of her family. Well may her children cherish her memory as a precious legacy and we fain would say a word of comfort to the stricken one but can only point them to the promise, "At eventide it shall be light."
