Chris Larson and J. P. Hanson returned Tuesday from Grand Rapids, MN where they were called by the illness of Mrs. Chris Jorgenson. They did not arrive there in time to see her alive, as she died soon after the elegram reached here. Mrs. Jorgenson has a large number of relatives in this vicinity and was well known among the pioneers having come to Clark county in 1892 and continued to live here until about a year and half ago when she and her husband went to Grand Rapids, Minn., to live, having purchased a farm near theri children. She was born in Sondenbro, Langeland, Denmark, and was nearly 81 years of age. She leaves four children, Chris Larson and Mrs. H. L. Rasmussen of Vienna, and Mrs. Carl Rasmussen and Mrs. Rasmus Rasmussen of Grand Rapid, besides numberous grandchildren who mourn her loss. She was buried at Grand Rapid Minn on January 20th.

From my Grandmother's scrapbook. Other entries on this page dated 1914. This was probably the Lake Preston newspaper, though not certain of that.
