Agnes Viola (Jordal) Nelson - burial

Agnes Viola Nelson, granddaughter of Sigri Gunnersdatter and Ole Larson was born April 9, 1909 in Milan township, DeKalb county, Illinois to Ingeborg (Haldorsdatter Mæland) and Omund Jordal.

Agnes married Clarence P Nelson on September 10, 1927.   Clarence may have been born in Alto township, Lee county, Illinois on September 26, 1904 to Hilda and Peter Nelson.   The baptism record indicates "Perry Clarence", though a confirmation record states "Clarence Peter".  It could be possible it is a different person.    

Agnes passed away December 24, 1989 in Rockford, Winnebago county, Illinois.  Clarence died in Rockford on December 11, 1961.      The Nelson's were buried at the Sunset Memorial Gardens cemetery in Rockford.
