Aged Couple Die
Ole Jacobson and Wife of the Town of Levis Pass Away

It has fallen to our lot this week to chronicle the unusually sad news of the death and burial of a worthy couple which occurred last week.

Ole Jacobson died at his home Monday evening, April 16, of anemia, at the age of 70 years, after patiently suffering for about two years and a severe illness of two weeks. He came to this country in 1866, living at Arena, Wis., two years then coming to this town where he lived until the time of his death. He was married to Miss Carrie Olson, of Arena in 1870 and to them were born four sons and four daughters, two of the sons having preceded them to the better land. He was a kind and loving father, and it was his dying wish that his wife, who had so faithfully watched over him, might go with him to the Heavenly home where there would be no more suffering, and He who does everything for the best, granted his wish.

On Thursday noon Mrs. Carrie Jacobson became seriously ill and about three o’clock suffered a stroke of apoplexy from which she never recovered, passing away at five o’clock Friday morning. She was born in Telemarken, Norway, September 24, 1846. They leave six children, three of whom are married, relatives and numerous friends to mourn their sudden loss.

The funeral was held from the house last Sunday where a large host of relatives and friends had gathered to take a last look at all that was mortal of Mr. and Mrs. Ole Jacobson. The high esteem in which the worthy couple was held was shown by the number of people who followed them to their last resting place and many people had gathered at the Norwegian church where Rev. E.M. Christopherson delivered a sermon. They were both faithful members of the Lutheran church, dying in the full faith of the Lord. They were laid side by side in the same grave. The sorrowing children and relatives have the heartfelt sympathy of all in this their great sorrow.

The children wish to express their thanks to all who assisted in the illness and burial of their parents.
