Notes for Severine Christine Storhaug: Death Of Mrs. Christine Olson This community was shocked on Tuesday morning when it was learned that Mrs. Christine Olson , one of the most highly respected of the pioneer ladies of this section had died very suddenly at five o'clock that morning.She had been ill for some time , and her condition became very serious last week , but no one thought that the end was near, and her death came very unexpectedly.And another good woman has gone to her reward. Severine Christine Storhaug was born at Stavangar ,Norway on November 1 , 1857 and died on Feb.6, 1917 , and was 59 years 3 months and 5 days old at the time of her death. She came to America in 1882 and remained for one year in Chicago , Coming to this section from there. On march 19 , 1885 she was married to Hans Olson , a very prosperous farmer at Virgina four miles south of here , and there she resided until some eight years ago when the old farm was sold ( 1909-1910)then she moved to Hudson , she , her aged father and her her son Oscar, having a very cozy home here. Mr. Olsen died twenty six years ago , and his wife and the children remained on the farm for many years after that and everyone in the Virgina neighborhood hated to see the family leave, for a better hearted woman never lived than Mrs. Olson, and she was always the first to help in case of sickness and the last to leave.she was a fine nurse and skillful, sympathetic , and many a weary sufferer was cheered by her kindly , motherly ministrations, for she never spared herself when there was sickness or trouble , and was always to assist those who needed help and encouragement.She was a blessing to that community in early days, and I have heard many of the old timers say they would not have known what they would have done without her.Her's was a cheery , Christian spirt , ever ready to make sacrifices to make someone else happy and her unselfishness is often referred to in the community where she lived so many years. Her aged father Grandpa Osmand Storhaug , who is now 88 years old , was her special care during the last few years , and she did all she could to make his declining years happy and comfortable ones. She was a kindly Christian woman , loved and respected by all who knew her. some three weeks ago her daughter Mrs. Clyde Pentland of Yorktown , ILL. was sent for , and she has been at her mothers bedside ever since.Mrs. C. E. Bushnell , her other daughter, lives near Ozone , Idaho ,and was unable to get here , because of the blockade of the railroads.These two daughters and their children , and her son Oscar , her aged father, and her sister ,Mrs. Helmik Lode and her family, survive her.She was a faithful member of the Lutheran church , and there the funeral services will be held tomorrow , Friday afternoon at two o'clock. The sadly bereaved children and other relatives have our sincerest sympathies at this time.They mourn a loving mother , good Christian woman , one who was most highly esteemed and respected wherever she was known.
