Diane: Here is Carol Severson's transcription of Minda's obit from Dec 1980:
"Services for Minda O. Knutson, 87, Menomonie, will be held 1:30 p.m., Thursday, Dec. 18, at Our Saviors Lutheran Church, Menomonie. Mrs. Knutson died Dec. 15 (1980), at the American Lutheran Home, Menomonie.
Visitation for the family will begin 3 p.m. Dec. 17, and will be from 4-9 p.m. that same day for the public. Visitation Thursday is from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Rev. Norman Scheide will officiate. Burial is in the Hay River Lutheran Cemetery.
Mrs. Knutson was born in Grant, July 21, 1893, to Hans and Johanna (Johnson) Chestelson, and raised in the Wheeler area. She was baptized Sept. 3, 1893, at the Running Valley Lutheran Church, Colfax. She moved to Menomonie shortly after her marriage April 22, 1911, to Anton Knutson.
She is survived by a sister, Mrs. Arthur (Alba) Knopps, Menomonie, and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Anton, three sisters and two brothers."
It is, I believe, from the "Dunn County News". She was my great aunt.
