Fannie Melin, nee Fannie Price, was born on May 17, 1867 at Rockford, Ill., being 84 years and eight months of age at the time of her death on Thursday, March 13th, 1952.


A resident of this community (Owen, Clark Co., Wis.) for the past 44 years she first spent her childhood days at Rockford until the time of her marriage to Carl T. Melin on May 30, 1903.  The couple were wed for five years until 1908 when they moved to this community, settling on a farm north of the village of Withee.  Here she made her home until 1937 when she moved to Withee.  In 1949 her health began to fail and she entered the Halterman Invalid Home at Stanley, where she was when she passed away.


Her husband preceded her in death, having died on July 2, 1935.  A daughter, Winifred, also preceded her in death, passing away on July 7, 1923.


Surviving her is one son, Owen, who lives on the home farm north of Withee, in addition to a wide circle of friends whom she had endeared herself to during the many pioneer years she spent in this community.
