Mrs. Caroline, who died at
the Aase Haugen Old Peoples Home, near Decorah, last Friday May

girl, Caroline worked for different families as hired girl and received
the very small wage of 75 cents a week.
In 1855 she was married to
Ole C. Steen. He was a tailor in Frankville but shortly thereafter
moved to Decorah where Mr. Steen continued his trade as a Tailor
for several years. Later they moved to Forest City, Iowa, where
he continued in this business until his death, Sept. 19, 1892.
Mrs. Steen had seven children.
All of them preceded her in death. She came all alone to the Old
Peoples Home near Decorah in 1922, abiding there until her death.
Her remains were shipped back
to Forest City where grave-side services will be held tomorrow,
Tuesday May 26th, where she will be laid to rest by the side of
her fine husband and their children.
