Funeral services for Mrs. George Lundahl, 70 years old, who died at her home of cancer at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, were held Tuesday afternoon.  The body lay in state at the Polnaszek Funeral Home until noon when it was taken to Christ Lutheran Church, of which church she was a member.

 

The Rev. F. H. Sprengler officiated at the 2 o’clock services, during which Miss Dorothy Kieser and Mrs. Weldon Brown Jr. sang "The Old Rugged Cross" and "Softly and Tenderly."

Coming to Abbotsford at the age of 12 years, she continued her education here.  On Feb. 23, 1911, she and George Lundahl were married at Abbotsford and made their home on a farm two and one-half miles west of here.  Mr. Lundahl died in 1950 and Mrs. Lundahl remained on the farm until two years ago when she moved to town.

Also surviving are one sister, Mrs. Hazel Wilhelmi, and one brother, Gordon Phaneuf, both of Abbotsford.

 

Besides her husband, she was preceded in death by six grandchildren, two brothers, Frank and Charles Phaneuf, and two sisters, Bessie Phaneuf and Blanche Bell.
