Gilbertson, Mattie (26 November 1869 - 18 April 1937)

Mattie Stamstad Gilbertson, daughter of Ole and Martha Stamstad, was born in Norway, November 26, 1869. She came to Jackson County in 1876. She was married July 30, 1896, at Irving, to Emil G. Gilbertson. They made their home on the farm in Irving until 1931 when they built a fine new home on Polk Street and moved to this city, which has since been their home.

Mrs. Gilbertson is survived and deeply mourned by her husband and three sons: Edgar M. Gilbertson, Harvey B. Gilbertson, both of Black River Falls; and Mahlon R. Gilbertson, of Fort Atkinson. She leaves one sister, Miss Marie Stamstad, of St. Paul. Three brothers, Ole, Gilbert and Sevart, and one sister, Mrs. George Jensen have preceded her in death. She is also preceded in death by one son, Irwin O. Gilbertson, who died in 1932.

Mrs. Gilbertson was held in high regard by all who knew her. She was a fine Christian character, loved for her many fine qualities of heart and mind. She was a devoted wife and mother, a loyal and loving sister. She will be greatly missed, not only in her home and family circle but by her friends. The sympathy of all goes to her bereaved husband and family.

Among those from away who came to attend the funeral were Dr. T. J. Gilbertson, of Milwaukee; Professor George J. Gilbertson of Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and Miss Marie Stamstad, who returned to their homes Friday. Mr. and Mrs. N. A. Ford and daughter, Miss Bernice, of Rainy River, Ontario, and Mrs. O. J. Norby of Bagley, Minnesota, returned Saturday, and Mr. and Mrs. Mahlon Gilbertson of Fort Atkinson, remained here until Sunday. Mr. Gilbertson’s sister, Mr. J. H. Sommervold, of Bagley, is remaining with him for the present.
