Is a bright and peaceful shore:
There the blissful bands are roaming,
Of our loved ones gone before.

"By the crystal streams of heaven,
In its fields of fadeless flow'rs;
To our loved and lost are given
Purer joys than these of ours.

"In the many mansion'd dwellings
Of the holy and the blest,
Where the glad new song is swelling,
Our beloved are at rest.

Do they whisper there the story
Of the love for us below?
TO those summer heights of glory,
Do they long for us to go?

"We will hush each sigh of sadness,
Lest it reach that peaceful land,
There will come an hour of gladness,
We shall join the spirit band."

Newspaper: Medina Daily Journal, 6/23/1923

Peter ESKELSON of Medina passed away at St. Jerome Hospital in Batavia, N. Y., June 16th; his death resulted from complications following an operation for cancer of the stomach. He was born in the southern part of Sweden October 30, 1853. At the age of 15 he came to America, settling in Western Illinois where he spent some time in school and prepared himself for the teaching profession, which he followed for twenty-three years. He also engaged in farming.

March 1, 1882, he was married to Matilda JOHNSON and to this union five children were born. They are Rose E. and Alvin L. of Medina; Ola J. of Boulder, Colo.; Annie L. of Omaha, Neb., and Minnie E. of Fort Dodge, Iowa. With the exception of a few months spent in South Dakota, he lived near Villisue (sp?), Iowa and Abingdore, Illinois. His wife died February 2, 1893.

He moved to Abingdore, Illinois in 1902 for the education of his children and lived there and later at Villisca, Iowa, until 1920, when he came to Medina. He was confirmed in the Lutheran Church at the age of fourteen and later joined the Methodist Church, always placing his membership in the church of the community in which he lived. Soon after coming to Medina, he joined the Methodist Church and was at once elected to the official position of steward, which position he held to the day of his death. He was also elected teacher of the Men’s Class, for which he was eminently fitted, both by training and experience.

The funeral services were held Tuesday, June 19, from the home at 1:30 p.m. and at the church at 2 o’clock and burial was made in Boxwood Cemetery. The services were in charge of Rev. L. L. Rogers, the pastor of the church, assisted by Rev. W. M. Heisler of Kenmore, N.Y., a former pastor, who sang a solo. Other music was furnished by a mixed quartette from the choir of the church, with Miss Alice Louise Chase at the organ. In the course of his remarks Dr. Rogers said that three characteristics stood out prominently in the life of Peter ESKELSON, vis: High regard for Religion and the Church, High regard for Education, and an intense love for home and family. A rich heritage indeed to leave to the five children left to mourn his loss.
