Miss Helen Kindlund died at the home of her parents in this city on Thursday evening, March 5. The funeral was held on Sunday afternoon from the Swedish Lutheran church, and was very largely attended. Rev. Swan conducted the service and preached both in Swedish and English. the text for the sermon in Swedish was taken from Luke 2:48. The text for the English was taken from 1 John 3:2. Interment was made in the Worthington cemetery.

Helen Elizabeth Kindlund was born April 8, 1879, on a farm in Bigelow township, known as the homestead of Nels N. Langseth, where she lived until the fall of 1881, when they moved to Worthington and has lived here continually since. She received her education in the Worthington High School, and from childhood up to her death she was a member of the Swedish Lutheran church, in which she was confirmed in the spring of 1894. She always worked and stayed at home with a very few exceptions.

In 1904 she went into partnership with Miss Annie Johnson in the millinery business. In 1907 they dissolved partnership, Miss Kindlund continuing the business until her death.

She is deeply mourned by her parents, two sisters, Emma and Martha, a grandmother living in Sweden, and by many other relatives and scores of friends among the young people. Miss Kindlund suffered from diabetis and consulted Dr. Manson some time in May, 1907, taking his advice of refraining from business worry. In the fall she went to St. Paul and stayed with her aunt and was under Dr. Solberg's care. Last Tuesday she walked up to Dr. Manson's office and the next morning when the doctor called he ordered her to bed. She grew worse rapidly so that in the afternoon she lost speech and consciousness, and it could plainly be noticed that she was getting weak, with no hope for anything better. Thursday evening at 8 o'clock she was released from pain and died in the faith of her Saviour, at the age of 28 years, 10 [months] and 27 days.
