Irvin Iverson and daughter Irene
Word was received here last week Thursday that Mrs. I. J. Iverson, formerly of Manfred, had passed away at her home at Colorado Springs, Colorado in May 1921. Mrs. I. J. Iverson, formerly Miss Margaret Rogne, of Manfred was born in Norway in 1892. When only nine months of age she came to America with her parents, who located at Manfred where Mr. Rogne took up a homestead.
She lived with her parents until 1915, when she married Irvin J. Iverson. They made their home on a farm northeast of Manfred until last fall, when the farm was rented and they left to find medical aid for the deceased.
Two children were born to this union, Irene, now four years old, and a son Marlow, who preceded his mother to Eternity last July. Last fall the Iversons left for Minneapolis and Rochester, Minn. and finally went to Colorado Springs, in an effort to improve Mrs. Iverson's health. Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. B. Rogne, left for the west some time ago and Miss Caroline Rogne, a sister, who had been teaching in the local schools, left a few weeks ago, and arrived in time to be with her sister when the end came. Mr. Rogne, however, returned to Manfred three weeks ago to attend to springs work there.
Irvin died in California in 1969.
