I can't find anything about where Orletha is buried or an obit. I know she did die in Grant on 12/28/1937 at about 24 yrs old. I'm pretty sure she was unmarried. She has relatives at Land and Zion cemetery. Any help would be much appreciated!

Found something about the family. She is mentioned briefly but maybe it will help.

Clarence W. Krusemark, 86, a resident at the Hoffman Good Samaritan Center, passed away Tuesday, January 16, 2001, at the center. He was born on April 29, 1914, in Martin County near Truman, Minnesota to Ernest and Lucy (Schultz) Krusemark. He was baptized on June 28, 1914. In 1920, the Krusemark family moved to a farm near Hoffman. He attended rural school and was confirmed at the Bethel Lutheran Church in Hoffman. On September 5, 1938, he was united in marriage to Agnes Getz in Baker, Montana. The couple made their home on a farm near Hoffman where he loved to farm his land. It was there that they raised their family. In 1962, the couple moved into Hoffman and he began his career in building construction. Agnes passed away on December 31, 1988; the couple had celebrated 50 years of marriage that fall. In 1993, he made the Hoffman Good Samaritan Center his home. Through the years, Mr. Krusemark served as chairman on the Hoffman School Board, was a trustee for the Lands Church and while mayor of Hoffman was instrumental in beginning the ambulance service. In addition to his love for farming, Mr. Krusemark also had a passion for woodworking. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, his huge garden, his cats and his grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his wife Agnes, his parents, a son Thomas Wayne in infancy, sisters Orletha and Luverne and daughter-in-law Janice. He is survived by his sons Lyle (Deborah) of Elbow Lake, Ron (Rosie) of Kensington, Jerry (Deb) of Hoffman, Bob (Bev) of Perham and Greg (Joan) of Alexandria; 16 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. Visitation: 3-7 p.m. Friday and Saturday morning from 9-noon at the new Erickson-Smith Funeral Home on Highway 27 in Hoffman and one hour prior to service at the church Service: 2 p.m. Saturday at Messiah Lutheran Church, Hoffman Clergy: Rev. C. Stephen Olson Burial: Lands Cemetery, Hoffman Funeral Home: Erickson-Smith Funeral Home,

Orletha is found - Bethel Cemetery in Herman, MN. The Grant County Historical Society found 2 newspaper articles on her. I've created a memorial page with the transcribed obits:
