Elizabeth Lundahl was born Feb. 4, 1876 in the Town of Mequon, near Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At an early age she came with her parents to a farm near Dorchester, Wis. After she completed her education she worked at dress making and designing for a number of years in Texas and Minneapolis. In the early years of the 1900’s she and a sister had a dress making shop in Abbotsford, Wis.

When her father died in 1921 she came to the home farm and helped run that and after the death of her mother in 1936 she and her sister, Ann, carried on until about six months ago when they moved to Abbotsford, Wis.

For the past few months Miss Lundahl was employed at Medford and it was there that she was taken ill. She came home about ten days ago and on Wednesday morning died at 9:00 o’clock.

Ann and George Lundahl, Abbotsford; Mrs. Bertha Geiger and Dora Lundahl, Milwaukee; Mrs. Frank Heath, Longmont, Colo.; Mary Lundahl, East Chicago, Indiana.
