Lindquist, Ephraim (24 JUN 1860 - 1 JUL 1937)

Eph. Lindquist, 77, passed away at the Luther Hospital at Eau Claire Thursday, of Nephritis, a disease from which he had been suffering for the past year. Never knowing the discomforts of a day’s sickness, he endured his ailment with a characteristic patience and cheerfulness. All the care and love that skilled physicians and an anxious household could devise and apply for his comfort and assistance were brought into play, but to no avail.

Ephraim Lindquist was born in Boras, Sweden, on June 24, 1860, and came to this country in 1880, landing in New York. He resided at Sister Bay in Doorfield Co., Wis., for some time, and in 1883 came to Thorp where he located on a farm two miles west of Thorp where he located on a farm two miles west of Thorp (Clark Co., Wis.) and later moved on the farm just outside the village, residing there until the time of his death. He was married to Lizzie Kronberg on Aug. 9, 1889. Mrs. Lindquist died, May 25, 1932.

He was the father of a family of twelve children, all of whom survive with the exception of Donald, who died Jan. 2, 1922, at the age of 11.

Those left to mourn are five sons, Lawrence of Menasha, Charles, Kenneth, Durward and Russell of Thorp; six daughter, Jennie and Mrs. Floyd (Esther) Holstein of Neillsville, Mrs. C.A. (Minnie) Johnson of Thorp, Ella and Mrs. John (Ruth) Slowinski of Milwaukee, and Lorrain of Alexandria, Minn., and one sister, Miss Sophia Lindquist of Sweden.

Funeral rites were conducted at the Bogumill Funeral Home Sunday at two p.m., the Rev. J.N. Midtlien of Stanley, officiating, burial taking place in the East Thorp Cemetery. Pallbearers were: Mike Ramer, Fred Driessen, Bernard Rusch, Wm. Glasshof, Arthur Soderberg and Garfield Brown.
