born 21 Nov 1860 - died 20 Nov 1943



Segrid Martha Lindquist was born in Stodde, Sweden, Nov. 21, 1860. At an early age she sought Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and became a member of the Baptist church there. She was among the early settlers in Ida County and there spent most of the years of her life.

She was united in Holy matrimony to Swan M. Lindquist who preceded her in death in 1909. One daughter, Meadie Arleen, passed away in 1918. After years of failing health she passed quietly away on Saturday Nov. 20, 1943. Had she lived a few hours longer she would have observed her 83rd birthday. God called her to spend her birthday in heaven.

She is survived and mourned by her daughters, Mrs. Vernie Winquist, Miss Winnie Linquist and Mrs. Ethel Larson, one son, Earl Linquist, four grandchildren, Mrs. Mildred Walters of Los Angeles, Calif. Cpl. John Winquist, U. S. Air Corps, Alliance, Nebr, Cpl, Dwight Winquist, U. S. Air Corps, somewhere in England, and John Larson of Des Moines. She is also survived by one brother in Sweden, one cousin, Mrs. Ereka Larson of Kiron, nieces, nephews and many friends.

Mrs. Lindquist was a mother who assumed all the duties and obligations entrusted to her. There was perhaps no spot so dear and close to her as her home. The joy of her life was expressed through the tender , intelligent, sympathetic concern she had for her own. It can truly be said, and that without extravagant eulogy, that she gave her best to make others happy.

Mrs. Lindquist was deeply interested in everything that pertained to the church. She was always true to her Savior. Her true Christian character did much to bring joy to the despondent, hope to the discouraged and friendship to the lonely.

Funeral services were held from the home Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock and from the Baptist church in Kiron at 2 o'clock, Rev. S. Bruce Fleming officiating. Singing was rendered by Mr. and Mrs. R. O. Lindskoog.

The church was filled with people who came to pay their last respects to the departed sister.

The pall bearers were Edwin Carlson, Henry Johnson, George Carlson, Edwin Turin, Addic Anderson and C. B. Larson.

Interment was made in the Bethel Lutheran Cemetery.
