Moe, Anna (Mrs.) city clerk of Rhinelander, is an excellent type of the modern business women, capable and efficient in whatever she undertakes and able to rub shoulders with the world without loosing any of that refinement that is the principal charm of woman. She was born the daughter of John and Hulda (SANKER) SWEDBERG, and acquired her elementary education in the public schools of Rhinelander, and subsequently attended the Augustana business College at Rock Island, Ill., from which she was graduated in 1903. On her return to Rhinelander she secured a position with the Kolden Dry Goods Co., with which concern she remained until the Spring of 1906, after which until the fall of 1909 she was in the office of Judge D. H. WALKER. On March, 1917, she was appointed deputy county treasurer and worked as such until December, that year. In 1918 she was with the Rhinelander Advancement Association, taking charge of its office in January and looking after it during the absence of E. O. BARSTOW, who spent the greater part of that year in England. She also had charge of the Red Cross and home service work, remaining in that office until elected city clerk in April, 1921, and she service in the latter capacity has been eminently satisfactory. Miss Anna SWEDBURG became Mrs. Delmar MOE on Sept. 8, 1909. Mr. MOE was born at Stevens Point, Portage County, Wis., May 30, 1883, and came to Rhinelander about 1902, entering the employ of the Wisconsin Veneer Co., and for 14 years he had charge of the lathe machines in their factory. He died Sept. 14, 1916, at which time he was the oldest man in the company's employ in point of years of service, though only 33 years old. Mr. and Mrs. MOE became the parents of three children: John, Daniel and Edward. Mrs. MOE is a member of Emanual Lutheran Church, and is personally popular in social circles.
