Was Faithful Choir Director of Evangelical Mission Church
It was with a feeling of deep regret that Odebolt friends learned of the death of Mrs. E. O. Erickson, who passed away Thursday morning.
Delphine, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. A. Lindskoog, was born in Wheeler township June 28, 1884. She received her education in the rural schools of Wheeler township and in the Odebolt high school.
On Feb 28, 1906, She was united in marriage with E. O. Erickson and together with him moved that year to Monona County where they resided four years. The couple then moved to Ida county and later to Sac county. In December of 1918 they moved to Odebolt where they have since resided on Sixth street. Mr. Erickson is the owner of the E. O. Erickson Produce Co. Located on Main and Third streets.
Mrs. Erickson passed from this life, March 9, 1939 and at the time of her passing, her age was 54 years, eight months and 10 days. Her death was not unexpected as she had been a sufferer for several months and it was known that death was imminent. Her illness was of long duration and accompanied by much suffering, but her spirit was strong and it was with patience and fortitude that she bore her affliction.
Mrs. Erickson became a member of the Evangelical Mission Church June 10, 1900. She was always ready to help with her church work and took active part in it. She remained faithful as choir director until illness prevented her from continuing this cherished service. She was also organist for the Mission Ladies Aid society for years.
