Nelson, Edwin T. (13 November 1889 - 27 September 1973)

A former Shortville area resident, Edwin T. Nelson, 83, of Monroe, died September 27, at Pleasant View Nursing Home where he had been admitted August 31. He had been in ill health for the past two years. Funeral services were held September 29 from the New-corner Funeral Home, Monroe, and burial was in Greenwood Cemetery.

Edwin Nelson, the son of Gustav and Matilda Nelson, was born November 13, 1889, in Sloan, Ia. On October 9, 1922, he married the former Sara Boyer in Omaha, Neb., where they lived from 1923 until 1947. Mr. Nelson worked as a bookkeeper and an accountant for a railroad contracting firm and for his brother’s contracting, painting and decorating business. Upon retiring, the couple lived on a farm near the Shortville store for about 15 years before moving to Monroe in 1961.

He is survived by his widow; a brother, Chester, Omaha; and by two sisters, Mrs. Elsie Graham, Sioux City, Ia., and Mrs. Florence Shannon, La Feria, TX.
