Carteron, Una Mae (13 JUN 1901 - 6 Apr 1934)

Miss Una Mae Carteron, R.N. was accidentally killed in an automobile accident on Highway 73, about five miles north of this city, at about one o’clock Friday morning, April 6, 1934. Miss Carteron, Miss Alvera Dahlby and Wesley Schwarze were returning home from Owen when the tragedy occurred. Miss Carteron sprang or was thrown from the moving automobile as the vehicle struck a soft spot in the highway and lurched toward the ditch. She was pinned beneath the car as it overturned. Drs. Olson and Gaillardet were called to the scene of the accident, but found that her chest had been crushed and that death must have been instantaneous. Schwarze and Miss Dahlby were only slightly hurt.

Una Mae Carteron, R.N., was born to Mr. and Mrs. O.L. Carteron in Chickasaw County, Iowa, June 13, 1901. She resided there for one year, when her parent moved to Dane County, Wis. In 1914 she came with her parent to Clark County, Wis., where she has resided until her death. She graduated from the Greenwood High School with the class of 1919 and from the St. Joseph’s School of Nursing at Marshfield in 1927.

Since that date she has been following her profession doing private nursing. Death came suddenly and unexpectedly April 6, 1934. She had reached the age of 32 years, 9 months and 23 days.
