On Sunday June 10th, occurred the death of Mrs. Anna Framstad at the home of her son, Amund Lunde. Mrs. Framstad was born March 18, 1828 in Gran Paris, Hudeland, Norway. She was married there in 1858 to Paul Framstad. With her husband and son Nels, she emigrated to this country in 1882. On arriving here they made their home with their son Amund in Moody county. A year later the family moved to this township and homesteaded four miles west of Vienna. They remained on this farm for over 30 years and in 1913 came to Vienna and made their home with their son, Amund. At the time of her death she was 91 years old. Mrs. Framstad was among the first pioneers of this locality and bravely endured the trials and hardships incident to the settlement of a new country. Funeral services were held at the A. P.
