Notice from the 7 Dec 1933 newspaper:

Anna Lisa Pearson

Only nineteen days after she and her husband had observed their sixty-seventh wedding anniversery, Mrs. L.P. Eng was called by death 2 Dec 1933 at the ripe age of 92 years, 4 months and 13 days. Her demise occurred at her home.

Her funeral was held Tuesday afternoon at the Arthur Baptist church in charge of Rev. Faugerstrom of Kiron, assisted by Rev. Erickson of the Arthur Baptist church and Rev. Nordlander of Kiron. Interment was made in the Swedish Baptist cemetery. The pall bearers were six grandsons: Carl and Harry Eng, Levi, Leslie and Ray Carlberg and Wilmer Eng.

Anna Lisa Pearson was born in 1841 at Jung Forsamling, Skaraborgs, Sweden. She was married to Lars P. Eng, 13 Nov 1866. To this union were born ten children, five of whom are living and the other five have preceded their mother. Mr. Eng came to America in 1882. Two years later, Mrs. Eng came, bringing the children with her. They resided one year near Early and the remaining time in the community south of Arthur. Through hard work and thrift, they became the owner of the farm where they have continued to live until death has separated this faithful couple.

Mrs. Eng surrendered her life to Christ while still a young woman in Sweden. Shortly after settling in Ida county, she united with the Mission church, commonly known as the Baker church, where she remained a member until it discontinued. After that, she transferred her membership to the Odebolt mission church. She was a very devoted Christian, serving her Lord with all her heart. Her most earnest wish and prayer until the very last was that all men and women, especially her children and grandchildren would turn to God for salvation.

After becoming enfeebled by old age, mr. and Mrs. Eng have been tenderly cared for by two daughters, at first Mrs. Alma Estlick, who had the misfortune last March to fall and break a leg. Since then, Mrs. Frank Beecraft has faithfully and tenderly ministered to their needs.

The departure of Mrs. Eng is mourned by her beloved husband, with whom she shared 67 years of her life, by five children, Alfred and Otto both of Ida county, Mrs. Alma Eslick of Los Angeles, Mrs. Lena Carlberg of Storm Lakd and Mrs. Ellen Beecraft of Los Angeles. Those who have gone before were: Ida Josephine, a pair of twin infants, Aton, who died at the age of 31 and Anna, at the age of 34. There are 22 grandchildren and 33 great grandchildren.
