PASSING OF MRS. GEO. HAGGE
By Gerald McElroy.
Ledyard, Jan. 28—This community suffered a severe shock last Thursday morning, when word came that Mrs. George Hagge had died. She was nearly recovered from an operation for gallstones at the Algona hospital Monday, January 13. Death came suddenly, due to a blood clot. Her daughter Hanna was the only relative present. Mrs. Hagge’s friends were as many as her acquaintances, and her passing brought much sorrow to the community.
The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at 1:30 at the home, 2:30 at the churches. Due to the smallness of the churches, services were held at both the Methodist and Evangelical churches. The Rev. Mr. Damman, of the Evangelical church preached the funeral sermon. The whole community attended.
Martha Hinrichsen was born in Schleswig, Germany, June 24, 1889, and the same year her parents came to the United States and settled in Jones county, this state. In 1907 she was married to George Hagge, and moved here in 1910. At death Mrs. Hagge was 40 years, 6 months, and 30 days old.
Four children besides the husband are living: Edward, Hanna, Helen, and Alice. Edward and Hanna are graduates of the local high school in the last four years, while Helen is a senior this year. Alice is ten years of age.
Besides the immediate family three brothers and four sisters survive: Martin, Hans, and Christy, of Blue Earth; Mrs. John Frandle, Ledyard; Mrs. Jay Osmonson and Mrs. Clem Smith, Waseca, Minn.; Mrs. Carlyle Frye, Blue Earth.
Mrs. Hagge’s father died when she was 13 and her mother was killed in an accident a few years later.
Mrs. Hagge was one of the leading church and Sunday School workers in this community. She was a member of the Evangelical church. She was held in highest esteem by all who knew her, and the whole community feels the loss.
