Petrea Bundgaard was born in Toving, Nykobing Mors, Denmark on June 15, 1895. She came to the United States in 1912, on her 17th birthday. She lived in Waterloo, Iowa several years before coming to this community where she married Anton Andersen Thanksgiving Day, 1917. They have occupied a farm several miles west of Dell Rapids since that time.

Survivors included one daughter Delaine, Mrs. Dennis Jensen, and three brothers in Denmark, Viggo, Christian and Anders Bundgaard.

Her husband died in 1952 and two sisters and an infant daughter also preceded her in death.
