Mrs. Edla Hallander passed away in her home in Kiron Wednesday evening of last week after a long siege of illness. During the past year she was beadfast most of the time.
Elda Oberg was born in Lerbeck Socken, Orebro Lan, Sweden, January 18, 1856, and passed away at her home here March 19, 1924, being at the time of her death 68 years, 2 months and one day old. She came to America in the year 1882 and settled in the state of Illinois, then coming to Sioux City, where she met Hans Hallander and in the year 1889 was united in marriage to Mr. Hallander, going to housekeeping on the Hallander homestead in Ida county. Both were active members of the Arthur Baptist church during their residence there. Mrs. Hallander was converted and became a member of the Baptist church in Sweden in the year 1873. In the fall of the year 1909 they moved to Kiron and in the winter of 1915 Mr. Hallander passed into the Great Beyond. Since then she has lived alone until the last two years when her health began to fail her. She had help most of the time. During her stay in Kiron she was an active member of the first Swedish Baptist church here. She always upheld Christian standards and often, since becoming bedfast, expressed her desire that the Lord might take her home.
