Hilma Regina Peterson

Hilma Regina Peterson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Peterson, 421 Park Avenue east, was born in Princeton, Illinois, November 18, 1873, and died January 17, 1918, at the Lutheran Hospital, Moline, Illinois, where she had been taken for treatment.

She spent her whole life in Princeton and was a loving daughter and sister, having the care of the home until her health failed about four years ago. Everything possible was done to restore her health but it was in vain.

She was a member of the Swedish Lutheran church, taking active part as long as her health permitted and her greatest pleasure was in doing for others. She is survived by her mother, father, three sisters, Minnie and Amy at home, Mrs. E. Pierson, of Little Rock, Ark., five brothers, Mentor, Frank, and Archie of Princeton, Will of Moline, George of Chicago, and many other relatives and friends. She will be sadly missed, especially in the home. Mrs. Pierson was unable to attend the funeral on account of illness.

Funeral services were held from the home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. John Berg, assisted by Rev. H. J. Lee. Mrs. August Erickson sang two very appropriate songs. Her five brothers and cousin acted as pall bearers. Interment was in Oakland cemetery.

The following relatives from out of town attended the funeral: Mr. and Mrs. George Peterson, Chicago; Mr. and Mrs Rostat, Smithland, Ia.; August Rostat, Greenfield, Ia.; Mr. and Mrs. Al. Anderson, Mrs. Louis Clairson(sp?), Will Peterson, Miss Neil Anderson and Joseph Anderson, all of Moline, Ill.
