Obituary of Marjorie G. Lundell -- 24 April 1938 -- Kiron Newspaper
Marjorie Gertrude Lundell, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. R. Lundell, was born July 13, 1914 at Ida Grove, Iowa and passed away April 24, 1938, at Oak Terrace, Minnesota at the age of 23 years, 9 months and 11 days.
She was baptized Sept. 27, 1914, and confirmed April 18, 1928, in the Bethel Lutheran church and has been a member there ever since.
After finishing the eight grades in her home school she attended the Odebolt high school and was graduated from there in 1932. During her four years of high school work she was very interested and took part in both musical and dramatic activities. She attended Christian College, a junior college for girls, at Columbia, Mo., and after her graduation from there in 1934, she continued her college work at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minn., graduating from there in June 1937 with a Bachelor of Science degree in the School of Music Education.
While at Christian College she was president of the St. Cecelia Music club and a member of the Mary Arden club. She was affiliated with the Sigma Alpha Iota honorary professional music sorority at the University of Minnesota.
All those who knew Marjorie knew the splendid girl that her life exemplified. She was a talented musician and her ambition was to complete her education in music, which she had realized. In her school work at various places she had made many friends thru her beautiful personality. Her life will forever live in the memory of her loved ones and her many friends.
Marjorie was most devoted to her parents who so deeply feel the loss of her passing from this life into a more beautiful life. Also was she closely devoted to her aunt, Miss Minnie J. Lundell, with whom she made her home in Minneapolis while attending the University. Many relatives and a host of friends keenly feel the loss in her going.
Funeral services will be held from the home at 1:30 o'clock this (Wednesday) afternoon and at 2 o'clock from the Bethel Lutheran church, Rev. Herbert Johnson, pastor of the church officiating. Beautiful singing will be rendered by R. O. Lindskoog and Rev. Johnson and Miss Anna Anderson.
Marjorie will be borne to her resting place by schoolmates, Randall Johnson, Carroll Stoneberg, Page Rector, Hugo Schmitz, Howard Noyd and Marvin Stock, and interment made in Bethel Lutheran cemetery. Peace be to her memory.
