GEO. L. VANGSNES DIES VERY
George Leo Vangsnes was born June 22, 1890, near Davenport, N.D., his parents being pioneers of the Red River Valley. Here he lived and worked on the home farm until his marriage, Nov. 21, 1920 to Cora E. Johnson of Greenwood, Clark County, Wis. They started married life farming near Kindred, N.D., until Oct. 1924, when they came to Greenwood and since then had made their home at the P. C. Johnson farm, at which place his death occurred Sept. 13, 1928.
He leaves to mourn his death, his wife and three children, Erna age six, Philip age two and a week old son Clark Mathew, also his mother, Mrs. Anna Vangsnes of Davenport, N.D., three brothers, Oliver on the home farm, Henry of Aneta, N.D., Myron of Moorhead, Minn., and three sisters, Mrs. Howard Burns of Michigan, N.D., Mrs. Axel Stohle, Dilworth, Minn., and Mrs. Ewald Anderson of Minneapolis, besides a host of other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his father, one sister, Mrs. Milton Coryell of Dilworth, Minn., and an infant daughter, Amy Gunhild.
His high ideals and amiable disposition won for him a place of genuine esteem among his many friends and neighbors, who sadly mourn his death.
His wife and children feel the great loss of a beloved husband and father.
Sunday morning at 8:00, while he was yet in the home, peacefully resting among the beautiful flowers, the infant son was baptized, that being the only service at the house.
After a short service at the Trondhjem Church, he was taken to North Dakota where on Mon., Sept 17, funeral services were held at the Christiania Church near Kindred and the body was laid to rest beside his infant daughter in the Christiania Cemetery.
Those from away who attended the funeral were, Mr. and Mrs. Morris Anderson, Mrs. Otto Anderson and two daughters, all of Stevens Point, John C. and Gustav C. Johnson, Mrs. Tillie Emerson and son Clarence, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Peterson and daughter of Black River Falls and Mr. and Mrs. Huber and son of Melrose, Wis.
