Obituary---Mrs. Ferdinand MADSEN
Emma Anette STEFFENSEN was born in Montcalm county, near Gowen, Michigan, on December 15th 1886, and passed away at the U. M. hospital in Greenville on Monday, June 23, 1930 at the age of 43 years, 6 months and 8 days. She was baptized and confirmed by Rev. Ole AMBLE and grew to womanhood at the near vicinity of her home. On March 30, 1904 she was united in marriage to Ferdinand MADSEN. She became the mother of three children Elwood, Bernice and Robert, who all are staying at home with their father at the present time. Mrs. MADSEN had suffered for a number of years from a goiter which finally caused her to consent to an operation and on June 16 she went to the hospital at Greenville for professional care, during the week prior to the operation. But as her heart had been very much affected from the goiter, she was unable to stand the strain of the operation and passed away on the operating table. Mrs. MADSEN was an active member of the local lodge of Rebekahs. She leaves to mourn their loss her husband and three children, her father, Anders STEFFENSEN, of the Big Settlement; three brothers: Lauritz, Walter and Anton, also of the Settlement, and one sister, Mrs. Clarence SEBALD, besides a large number of relatives and a host of friends to whom she was very dear. The funeral was held on Thursday afternoon with services in the Danish church in Trufant, Rev. BECK officiating. The remains were laid to rest in the Trufant cemetery.
Oh, deem not
they are blest alone
a peaceful tenor keep;
The Power who pities man,
A blessing for the eyes
The light of smiles
shall fill again
that overflow with tears:
And weary hours
of woe and pain
of happier years.
