JOHN THORENE, DALE FARMER, IS DEAD

Mr. John Thorene, passed away at his home in Duluth Saturday afternoon after an illness lasting about three months. Medical aid was sought and every thing that loving hands could do was done to restore him to health but to no avail.

Mr. Thorene was born in Smaland Sweden, Mar 31, 1927 and passed away Nov. 5, 1927 at the age of 48 years, 7 months and 5 days.

Mr. Thorene was united in marriage to Miss Dorothy Erickson, at Winnipeg Junction, Oct 27, 1909. This union was blessed with five children: Two have preceeded their father in death, namely Sherman and their first born babe.

He, with his family, lived at Brainerd for a whle, coming to Duluth nine years ago and this has been his home since.

Those left to mourn a kind and loving husband and father are the widow, Mrs. Dorothy Thorene, three children Elenore, Edna and John. A mother, aged 88 years at Stillwater. Four brothers, Rev. Hugo Thorene and Wendell of Minneapolis, Joseph [sic] and Tony [sic] of Stillwater. Two sisters, Mrs. Nellie Van Tassel of Minneapolis and Mrs. Marie Nord of Hudson, Wis., many other relatives and a host of friends.

Mr. Thoren [sic] was a true and faithful husband. During his sickness he experienced a true conversion and regeneration, and boldly testified of the grace and saving poer of Christ being fully resigned to God's Will and way of dealing with him. "But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethern, concerning them wich are asleep that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. for if we believe that Jesus died and rose again even so then also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him." 1 Thess. 4, 13-14.

Mrs. Thorene is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Erickson of Dale and the funeral was held at the Mission church of Dale. Interment was made in the church yard cemetery.

Biography* Reverend

Delgobe: (islandsk) Præst til Pembina i Dakotah 
Biography Jack Stub: An unknown relationship is that of Uncle Bogie Thorgrimssen, who was an icelander... Stubkjaer is just a shadow in my mind, but Uncle Bogie, Aunt Dora, and their sons, Hans and Goodman are vivid in my memory. Hans frequently stated that DeDe and he should get married. She'd say they were related; he'd say they weren't. Hans was very colorful, and when his visits coincided with those of Gerry, it was great theater. Goodman was on the faculty of the Univ. of North Dakota med. school. During the summer of 1964, I had dinner with Goodman and his wife in Grand Forks. He said Hans was somewhere in Texas.3

Biography* Copied from Rowberg File clipping (microfiche on file at Minnesota Genealogical Society). Clipping identified as:: Reese, Christopher Johnson. / Decorah Posten, 13 September 1918 / Translation from Norwegian by Jens Anker, Minneapolis, MN August 1999

It was an unusual event that took place at Soldiers Grove, Wise., 25 June, this year, in that Mrs. Gunilda Reese and her son-in-law, Tollef Peterson, were buried the same day.

Mrs. Reese was the only sister of Mrs. Atley Peterson, and Mr. Tollef Peterson was a merchant until recently in Soldiers Grove. The deceased, Gunilda Forinen, was born in Fortunsdal, Sogn, 22 May, 1839. When she was nine years old, she traveled with her parents and siblings to America, and the family settled in Dane County, Wise., where she grew up. She got married here to Christopher Johnson Reese, and they lived on their farm on the prairie out west for about for about 40 years. After the death of her husband, Mrs. Reese stayed on the farm until all of her children had grown up. She then moved to Montana, where she homesteaded and later lived with her daughter Ella (Mrs. Torger) in Bainville, Montana. She enjoyed good health until her last years, when she got a bad cold and the illness led to Bright's Disease. After suffering for some weeks, she died peacefully in her belief in her Savior 17 June.

The surviving children are: Mrs. Mons Ekum, Cornell, Wisc., Bertha Hooverson McIntosh, Minn. (Mother of the wife of Pastor J. A. 0. Stub), T. C. Reese, Duvall, Wash., Mrs. Tollef Peterson, Belmont, Mont, Mrs. J. G. Aschim, Berthold, N. Dak., Mrs. Ella Torger, Bainsville, Mont., T. R. J. Reese, McIntosh, Minn., and C. R. Reese, Belmont, Mont. All of them were present at their mother's funeral in Soldiers Grove. Two brothers, Ole Torger and Daniel Forinen, and a sister, Mrs. Peterson, as well as 28 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren also survive Mrs. Reese..

At the well-attended funeral, pastors Stephenson and Smeby from Viroqua preached. A telegram just received from Pastor Stub was read. He was in New York and was prevented from participating in the funeral. There were many beautiful flowers and the church was decorated nicely for the occasion.

Her daughter, Mrs. Torger, writes that her mother's last work was planting the gladiolas that she had received from "Decorah Posten". They are now in beautiful bloom, she tells. Mrs. Reese was one of the old subscribers and loyal friends of this newspaper.
