Mary Elizabeth (Knutson) Olson - obituary

Last month I posted an obituary for Mary Olson, the granddaughter of Ole and Mari Finnestad.

The photo with the obituary wasn't very clear but thanks to Mary's granddaughter, Beverly, I have a slightly clearer photo from the obituary.

It looks like Mary is holding a cake.

Here is a 2nd obituary that Beverly also provided.

This 2nd obituary was the only one of the two that mentioned a sibling (Edith) which may indicate that her younger sister, Anna (Knutson) Larson had passed away sometime between 1930 and 1943.

Mary was buried at the Lawnridge cemetery in Rochelle; her marker can be viewed here.
