MINNESOTA OBITUARIES OF ALFORDS

AND SPELLING VARIATIONS

 

 

Obituaries are listed alphabetically by FIRST name. Included are people whose last name, maiden name, or married name is Alford or a spelling variation: Alfred, Alvord, Allford, Halford, Hallford, Holford, etc.

 

The name of the newspaper (or other source) and place and date of publication follow the name of the deceased. If we included the obituary in AAFA ACTION, the issue is noted.

 

The Alford American Family Association (AAFA) often adds notes to each obituary, including Social Security Death Index (SSDI) data, relationship of the deceased to other Alfords, and lineages. We add to AAFA NOTES as time permits.

 

Where lineages are included (Alford unless otherwise stated), the format is: Name, year of birth, state or country of birth.

 

Obituaries of AAFA members and sometimes their spouses are also included on AAFA Member Memorials and may include more information.

 

We welcome corrections and additional information. If you have an obituary from this state that is not included here, please share it with us!

            Preceded in death by: her parents, Henry & Anna Moser; sister, Anna Wilbur; recently (12/27/03); by her much loved husband, Edmond; and son, Richard.

            Survived by her daughter, Roxie, son-in-law, Patrick and their daughter, Kati; Rick’s daughter, Kerstin; and treasured cousins and friends, Michele & Cathy.

            Edna and Eddie had a love for each other that comes around once every couple of millennia. When Eddie died, Edna died too. It just took a few weeks for her soul to catch up to her heart. Edna spent her life being an inquisitor and an encourager and the one who who painted silver linings in grey clouds. Right now she is probably greeting old friends and new, and most likely trying to feed people. Now it’s time for us to paint those grey clouds for ourselves and others.

            Profound thanks to Pastor Joy Johnson & Intern Steve Floftad for their many spiritual blessings. There are no words to adequately express gratitude to the staff & volunteers at the Pillars Hospice. Their gentle and thoughtful care will always be remembered. Dear Family & Friend, so many of you gave generous memorials in Eddie’s name and sent cards and flowers, don’t think it necessary to repeat this for Edna.

NORTHFIELD NEWS

Northfield, Rice Co., MN—Friday, 1 January 1932

 

            Mrs. L.C. Harris passed away Sunday morning, Dec. 27, at 1:00 at the age of fifty-five years and three months. She had been ill about seven months from heart disease and was confined to her bed for the past nine weeks. Her death came only after a great deal of suffering.

            Emma Sophia Hummel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.P. Hummel was born at Dundas, Sept. 21, 1876. She attended the village school here. On June 11, 1896, she was united in marriage to Lewis Alford. To this union four children were born. The young couple first lived on a farm near Dundas for a number of years, then took a homestead near Minot, N.D. Conditions were not good and they underwent the hardships of pioneering. Mr. Alford’s health gradually failed and they were forced to move to Austin, where he died in 1906. In 1907 the mother brought her four youngsters back to Dundas, where she has since resided.

            On Dec. 4, 1912, she was married to Louis C. Harris. To them one child was born, Robert, who passed away in the summer of 1924.

            Those left to mourn her loss are: Her husband; two sons, Archer E. Alford of Los Angeles and Jessie E. Alford of San Bernardino, Calif., and two daughters, Mrs. J.N. Hill (Ester) of this community, and Mrs. Henry Deam (Lois) of Chicago; her mother, Mrs. J.P. Hummel; also three sisters, Matilda and Mollie Hummel of Dundas and Eunice Hummel of Chisom; and five brothers, Rufus of Plainfield, N.J.; Phillip J. and Fred W. of St. Paul, Alvan of New Hampton, Iowa and C.E. Hummel of Chicago.

            The funeral services were held Tues. afternoon at the home, the Rev. A.S. Earl officiating. Mrs. Earl and members of her Sunday School class sang. The pallbearers were four brothers and two brothers-in-law of the deceased; Philip, Fred, Alvin and C. E. Hummel, George and Ben Harris.

            Interment was made in the Groveland cemetery.

            Mrs. Harris was a member of the Plymouth Brethren.

            Always cheerful and buoyant in disposition, her generous and helpful spirit will be greatly missed, not only by the members of her family, but by the large number of friends she leaves behind.

Austin, Mower Co., MN—Saturday, 13 April 1929

 

            Funeral services for Mrs. Arthur B. Reilly, who died Thursday evening after an illness of less than a week, will be held at 9:30 Monday morning at St. Augustine’s church with interment at St. Augustine’s cemetery.

            Mrs. Reilly was taken ill last Friday. She grew steadily worse and Monday was taken to St. Olaf hospital for treatment of blood poisoning. Death came at 5:40 Thursday evening.

            Rosella Katherine Reilly was born October 5, 1894 at Hector, Minn. In 1912 she was married to George Comford of Faribault and one daughter, Lucile, was born to this marriage. Mr. Comford met his death as the result of an accident in 1915, but his wife remained in Faribault until her marriage to Arthur Reilly, October 2, 1919. Mr. and Mrs. Reilly then came to Austin to make their home and here three daughters were born to them, Katherine 8, Shirley 6, and Helen 4.

            Mrs. Reilly was a member of St. Augustine’s church and the Degree of Honor lodge. She was also active in the Whittier Mothers’ Club.

            Her death came as a severe shock, not only to the immediate family but to her neighbors and many friends as she was well liked by everyone who knew her. Hearing of anyone in need, she always found time to lend a helping hand in spite of her many home duties.

            Surviving, besides her husband and four daughters, are her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Judson Alvord of Sauk Rapids and three brothers and five sisters: Crynus Alvord and Mrs. Albert Frechette of St. Paul, Mrs. Henry Brunner, Frank Alvord, Fabian Alvord, and Josephine Alvord of Sauk Rapids, Mrs. Elmer Opheim of Sartell, and Mrs. Edgar Berg of Faribault.
