SUDDEN DEATH OF MRS. H.G. RUDE--A Mother Called to answer Final summons--Extremely Sad Death.
Mrs. H.G. Rude died at the family home in Arlington at three o'clock this morning. The sad news of the sudden death of this good woman was told about the city during the forenoon and was shocking to all. Death came from heart failure. Mrs. Rude took sick Wednesday with stomach trouble but was up yesterday and apparently recovering her usual health. Mr. Rude called to his wife in the night and got no response where upon he found her dead. The husband and children are left to mourn her death and have the sympathy of all. Mrs. Rude was active in a social way in this city and will be greatly missed there as well as in the home.

Mrs. H.G. Rude who died at the family home in Arlington Friday, July 10, 1914 was 52 years of age, being born in Minnesota. The funeral at 1:30 o'clock Monday at the Baptist church (this is questionable) was conducted by Rev. Hindracker, pastor of the Lutheran church assisted by Rev. Tarleton. Preaching in the Scandinavian and English languages. Beautiful flowers in abundance were given by the Lutheran Aid and the Lutheran Sunday School, the W.C.T.U. and a host of friends.
There was singing by a quartet composed of Mesdames C.C. Maxwell and B.E. Lloyd and Messrs. Shaw and Stead: "Safe in the Arms of Jesus". A duet was sung by Misses Lettie Sabo and Gertrude Angle: "Tell Mother I'll be There".

Burial was at the Nordland Cemetery four miles southwest of town. Deceased leaves a husband and seven children. The Children are J.G., Rudolph, Otis, Joe and Norman Rude residing in Arlington, Mrs. Agnes Osbon, Hayti; Edward of Harlowton, Montana. The following relatives and friends came here to attend the funeral: From Volga: Mrs. Snyder and daughter, Mr. & Mrs. Dr. Scanlan, Mr. & Mrs. Alfred Mortenson, Mr. & Mrs. Julius Mortenson, Mrs. Lars Magstad, Mrs. Stockstad, Mrs. Bergenthal, Mrs. Ed Lee, Mrs. Blum, Mrs. Anderson, Mr. & Mrs. Larson, Mr. & Mrs.. C.T. Knutson and family. Mr. & Mrs. K. Lewis of Lake Preston, Mr. & Mrs. John Borsvold, Mrs. N. Borsvold of Lake Sinai. Mr. A. Rude and Mr. Sandvick of Canton. Mr. & Mrs. Edward Rude Harlowton, Montana, Mr.& Mrs. Don Osbon Hayti. An obituary and account of the life of the deceased will be published next week.


Mrs. H.G. Rude died Friday morning July 10th at her home in Arlington of heart trouble. The death came as a great shock to both relatives and friends as Mrs. Rude had always enjoyed the best of health, particularly during the year. The funeral was held Monday July 13, from the Norwegian Lutheran Church with Rev. Hinderaker and Rev. Taleton officiating. The church was beautifully decorated with house plants and cut flowers and the sermons delivered were very impressive. A large number of sorrowing relatives and friends present were very touching evidence of the high esteem in which Mrs. Rude was held. Interment was in the Nordland cemetery west of Arlington.

Anna Marie Hatlestad was born in Filmore County, Minnesota, January 10, 1862. In March 1879 she was united in marriage to H.G. Rude and very soon after that the young couple came to Volga where Mr. Rude filed on a claim. During the hard struggle for existence in the early days, Mrs. Rude stood side by side with her husband making light of every hardship, helping those around her with words of cheer and comfort. In 1892 they sold the farm at Volga and purchased a farm near Arlington which has been their home until three years ago when they moved to Arlington to enjoy the fruits of their many years of toil--well earned rest and comfort for years to come. Like a tired child she closed her eyes and went to meet her maker, serene in the confidence of life well spent--a rest well earned. Besides her husband, seven children are left to mourn the loss of mother: James, Edmund, Joe, Agnes, Rudolph, Otis and Norman. Two other children have preceded her in death, a son Norman and a daughter Esther. She also leaves a father, four brothers and a sister. Mrs. Rude was a member of the W.C.T.U. and active in its good work. She was also a member of the Norwegian Lutheran church and a teacher in the Sunday school. She was a Christian in the true sense of the word. Active in suppressing vice and helping others leading a good moral Christian life. Death must come to all. It is the climax of every life. And we know of no other method of departing from this world then quietly stepping from time into eternity as Mrs. Rude did. God in his infinite mercy had called her Home and the sorrowing relatives we can but say that Mrs. Rude is home in Heaven patiently waiting for her Christian teachings to bear fruit and unite her with her many friends and loved ones in one large family.
