Smith, Agnes D. (11 AUG 1906 - 5 JUN 1948)

Agnes Dagmar (Sjostrom) Smith died suddenly at Barron, Wis. Saturday, June 5, 1948. She was born in Red Granite, Wis. Aug. 11, 1906. She graduated from the Owen (Clark Co., Wis.) High School as valedictorian and then attended the Eau Claire Teachers College. After graduating from there she taught in Barron High School for seven years, resigning in 1938 when she was married to Archie Smith of Barron, Wis. They made their home in Barron for several years and then moved to Chicago, Ill., and later to Evanston, Ill. After the last war they again moved back to Barron where they have lived since.

Agnes Dagmar Smith had been ill for many years and her mother and father both preceded her in death during the past year.

Funeral services were held at the Griebenow Funeral Parlors at Owen at 2:30 p.m., June 8, 1948, and interment was made in the Riverside Cemetery at Withee. The Rev. Puotinen officiated.

She leaves to mourn her passing, her husband, Archie H. Smith of Barron, Wis.; a sister, Alma Anderson of Wilmette, Ill.; a brother, John Sjostrom of Owen; and many relatives and friends. She was a wonderful wife and friend, and all who knew her sadly mourn her passing. Her belief in god was sincere and steadfast at all times.

May she rest in peace forever as we leave her to Heaven.

Pallbearers at the service were Charlie Karye, Andrew Finnila, Ed Nevela, Matt Arola, Henry Portence and Jacob Winnemaki.

Flower girls were Mrs. Arnold Bjornstad, Mrs. Eino Luoma and Bertha Niemi.
