Nason, Margaret (12 JAN 1878 - 26 SEP 1948)

Mrs. Vinton G. Nason, aged 70 years, and the mother of Dr. M. V. Nason of this city (Owen, Clark Co., Wis.), died suddenly at her farm home at Frenchtown Sunday morning when she suffered a heart attack. For the past several weeks she had been confined to her home because of a fall in which she suffered a fractured ankle. Her progress had been satisfactory and it was expected that the cast would have been removed from her foot Monday.

Final rites were conducted yesterday afternoon at two o’clock from the Griebenow Funeral Home (Owen, Wisconsin) with Dr. K. O. Crosby reading the service. Interment was made in the Riverside Cemetery. Rachel Halverson sang at the service, accompanied by Mrs. A.M. Wilson. Pallbearers at the service were: Chris Paulsen, Martin Keskimaki, Arnold Rasmussen, Ed Bruchlager, Henry Freitag and Sigurd Sorenson.

Flower girls at the funeral were: Mrs. Martin Keskimaki, Mrs. A. Rasmussen, Mrs. Sigrid Sorenson, Mrs. Ed Bruchlager, Mrs. Henry Weddig, Mrs. Altenburg and Mrs. Henry Fultag.

Mrs. Vinton G. Nason, nee Margaret Erickson, was born on Jan. 12, 1878, in Lolland, Denmark. She came to America with her parents when a child of four years of age, the family settling on a farm in the Town of Rock, Wood County. She was united in marriage to her husband, who survives her passing, in 1899 at Marshfield, with the Presbyterian pastor, the Rev. J. F. Young, officiating.

The couple made their home in the Nasonville community, Town of Rock, until about five years ago, when they moved to their present farm in the Frenchtown community, northwest of Withee.

Surviving her in these earthly surroundings and missing her presence and personable warmth are her husband, Dr. Nason, another son Reuel S. Nason, Chicago, and four daughters, Mrs. Fred (Alene) Forester, and Mrs. Vincent (Ramona) Durphy, also of Chicago; Mrs. Harry (Adelaide) Garbish, Clearwater, Fla.; and Mrs. Lee (Norma) Heard, Denver, Colo.

Other survivors are two brothers, Elmer Erickson, Wausau, and Chris Erickson, Racine; a sister, Mrs. J. C. Peterson, Marshfield, and seven grandchildren.
