The sad news of the death of Chas. Andreasen, which occurred Sunday evening, brought a shock to this community. The end was unexpected, being the result of heart failure. He was playing a game of checkers at 8:30 P.M., when the attack took him, and he was gone immediately.

Deceased was born in Omaha, June 13, 1884, and was thus past forty years of age at the time of his death. He later moved with his parents to Kennard where he grew to manhood and where on August 30, 1911, he was married to Miss Anna Munson, also of that place.

To them three children were born, Helen, aged eleven years, Johnny, nine years and Mary, aged four years.

Mr. Andreasen was a good citizen, a good farmer and a consistent Christian and leaves a wide circle of friends who hold him in high esteem.

Besides his wife and three children, he leaves to mourn him his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Andreasen, three sisters, Mrs. James Sorensen, Mrs. Martin Bertelsen and Mrs. Paul Kempcke and four brothers, Robert, Fred, Arthur, and Elmer, all living in Washington county except Arthur who resides in Lyons.

Underwood and Rev. H. Nielsen officiating. Mr. Andreasen was born in Omaha June 13th, 1884, so was but 40 years of age last June. His parents moved to a farm near Kennard in 1890, and he was married August 30th, 1911 to Miss Anna Monson. He is survived by his wife and three children, Helen, aged 11, John, aged 9 and Mary, aged 4. Also four brothers, Robert, Fred and Elmer of near Kennard and three sisters, Mrs. Martin Pertelsen of this city and Mrs. Jas. Sorensen and Mrs. Paul Kempcke of near Blair.
