Fristad, Barbara (19 OCT 1900 - 8 APR 1944)


Death came peacefully at about 4:30 Saturday morning to Mrs. Nordahl S. Fristad, after an illness of four weeks following surgical attention, in the hospital at Black River Falls.  Hopes were entertained for her ultimate recovery until almost the very last.


She was a communicant of St. John’s Evangelical and Reformed Church, where the funeral services were held at 2:00 o’clock Tuesday afternoon.  A sympathetic and impressive sermon was delivered by the pastor, the Rev. Norman J. Dechant, to the many friends who gathered at the church.  He used as a text for his theme the words found in Job, Chapter 30, verse 23: "For I know that thou wilt bring me to death, and to the house appointed for all living."  Two sons, "Jesus, Savior, Pilot Me," and "Sometime We’ll Understand," were beautifully rendered by the soloist, Mrs. Moen of Black River Falls.  Many floral pieces were banked about the casket and altar, signifying the esteem by which she was held by all.  Interment was in Mentor Cemetery.  Pallbearers were A.E. Fradenburg, J.A. Johnson, Oswald Michael, E.K. Noyes, R.J. Stuve, and Wm. Theiler.


Besides members of the family who were here to attend the services, were two childhood friends, Miss Anne Rhyner of Albany and Mrs. Chris Rhyner of Brooklyn.


Barbara Kubly was born in Green Co., Wis., on Oct. 19, 1900, and departed this life on April 8, 1944, at the age of 43 years, 5 months and 19 days.  She was a daughter of Balthasar Kubly and Mrs. John S. Rhyner of Brooklyn, Wis.  She made her home with Mr. and Mrs. John S. Rhyner until her married to Mr. Nordahl S. Fristad on Aug. 16, 1930.  Since then she has resided on the farm adjoining this village (Humbird, Clark Co., Wis.).


She leaves to mourn her passing, her husband, one daughter, Donna, two sisters, Mrs. Margaret Schultz and Mrs. Emma Disch, her father, John S. Rhyner of Brooklyn, and an uncle, Werner Rhyner of Neillsville.
