Olaf Andreas Erickson, third son of Mr. and Mrs. Lars Erickson, died at his home in Green Valley, on Sunday, Feb 4.  He had suffered from consumption for several years, and had been confined to his bed but a few weeks when death’s angel came and summoned him to a place of rest, away from all suffering.  Olaf was a boy of a lively and generous disposition, and will be greatly missed by his many friends, both around here and other places, where he is known.  Nearly in the years ago he was confirmed with sixteen other classmates, but he is the first one called away, leaving “wheel with one spoke missing.”  The funeral took place on Thursday, Feb. 8th, from the Norwegian Lutheran Church in Green Bay, Rev. J.P. Bugge officiated.  The pall-bearers were the Messers. Louie Nayes, Albert Olsen, Fred Larsen, George Schuman, James Horsens and Alex Larsen.  Many beautiful flowers were sent by relatives and friends.  Olaf Erickson was born in Milwaukee, Dec. 26, 1882, and had reached the age of 23 years.  He is survived by a father and mother, six sisters and four brothers, who greatly mourn the loss of one, whose place among them can never be refilled.  The whole community extends their sympathy to the bereaved family, whose sorrow is better imagined than worded.  “He is gone, but not forgotten.”
