Mrs. Jacob Andreasen was born in Denmark November 24, 1855 and passed away at her home in Blair, Wednesday morning at five o’clock October 26, 1927. Had she lived until November she would have reached the age of seventy-two years.
She has been a sufferer from heart trouble for some time. She was taken with an attack of this dreaded disease and was confined to her bed for about three days before her death.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Andreasen came to American in 1878 landing in Bunker Hill, Ill. where they both found employment and after two and one-half years, they were married in St. Louis on the 18th day of November, 1880. They established their first home in Omaha where they resided until the spring of 1889 when they moved to a farm one mile west of Kennard. Here they resided until sixteen year ago when they retired from the farm, buying property in Blair where they have since made their home.
Nine children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Andreasen, seven of whom are still living, the eldest a daughter, Anna, having passes away several years ago and Chas. who passed away three years ago. The remaining children are: Robert, Fred, and Elmer and Mrs. Paul Kempcke fo Kennard, Arthur of Lyons, and Mrs. J. P. Sorensen a dn Mrs. Martin Bertelsen of Blair. Her aged husband also survives her.
Mrs. Andreasen was a true Christian mother, a consistent member of the Lutheran Church and had built for herself a friendship of life long and loving friends who mourn with the bereaved husband and children in a grief that is real in the loss of a friend, a mother and a wife. She was a living example well worthy of emulation, an example of right living and clean thinking that is always prized and held in esteem by all.
The funeral services will be held from the Danish Lutheran Church on Friday at two o’clock with Rev. Vig and Nielsen officiating and interment will be made in the Blair Cemetery where the two children that have gone on before are buried.

Anne Elise Juliusen was born in Denmark on November 24th, 1855, so would have been 72 had she lived until next month. She came to this county with her future husband, Jacob Andreasen, to whom she was then engaged. They settled first at Bunker Hill, Ill., where they were married November 18th, 1880, almost 47 years ago.
Shortly after their marriage they moved to Omaha where four of their nine children were born. About 38 years ago they bought a farm west of Kennard, which was their home until they moved to this city 16 years ago. They lived first out near Dana College, later moving to 510 West Park Street.
Mrs. Andreasen was a faithful and devoted member of the Danish Lutheran Church and will be greatly missed by that congregation as well as by her many old neighbors and friends.
Besides her husband she leaves seven children, two having passed away in early life, Emma, Mrs. A. P. Sontum and Chas. Andreasen, the later passing but three years ago. Robert, Fred and Elmer live at Kennard, also Mrs. Paul Kempcke. Arthur lives at Lyons and Mrs. Martin Bertelsen and Mrs. Jim Sorensen, of this city. Arthur was the only one not present when death found her. He arrived about an hour afterwards. There are 24 grandchildren.
Mrs. Andreasen was the last of her family. She was the only one who ever came to America, but she braved the stormy sea with the man of her choice and lived a happy and contended life. When the end was near she realized it and wasn’t afraid to trust herself in the arms of the Saviour she had loved and served all her life.
