Guri (Henningsdatter Stuedahl) Nysetvold
Funeral Rites Held For Pioneer Lady
Funeral Services Held for Mrs. Guri Nysetvold Monday Afternoon.
Mrs. Guri Nysetvold was born in Tyldal, Norway, April 22, 1857, her parents being Henning Stuedal and wife Ingeborg. Here she spent her childhood. In 1882 she came to Norman County, where she has resided ever since with the exception of a year which she spent at Audubon, Minn. On April 14, 1883, she was married to John Nysetvold and they have resided on their home farm near Flom ever since. To this marriage four children were born, Ingeborg, John and Henry, all of Flom, and Ole of Twin Valley. She is also survived by a brother, Anders Stuedal of Flom, a sister, Mrs. Arne Bloom of Helena, Mont., and another sister in Norway.
The deceased had been a very active member of the Immanuel church, being a charter member of the congregation. During the past years her health had been failing and on Wednesday, April 10, 1935, she answered the summons which brought her life to a close.
The deceased was laid to rest in Aspelund Cemetery Monday afternoon, a very large concourse of friends being gathered both at the home and in the church. The Aspelund choir rendered two selections and the quartet one. The pastor, Rev. Amundson, preached the funeral sermon.
Thus another of the sturdy pioneers has joined the ranks of those who have gone before. Reaching the mature age of almost seventy-eight years, she lived to see the wilderness turned into a prosperous community and had taken an active part in its development. Of very kind and helpful nature, and loved by all with whom she came in contact, she is mourned by many. Blessed be her memory.
