Johnson, Maynard (29 MAR 1898 - 17 OCT 1929)

Maynard Johnson, a young farmer of west Pine Valley, Clark County, Wis., died at Sacred Heart Hospital in Eau Claire, Thursday, Oct. 17, 1929, after a short illness.

Maynard Johnson was born in the town of Saxville, Waushara Co., Wis., March 29, 1898, and was 31 years, 6 months and 18 days old at the time of his death.

He came to Neillsville with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Johnson about 11 years ago. A few years later they bought the Dave Wood farm in Pine Valley and carried on the place together until the death of his father in Sept. 1925. Since that time Maynard continued in charge of the farm.

He was married to Miss Ellen Olson of Neillsville, June 20, 1928. One child was born to this union, who preceded him in death May 25, 1929.

Maynard Johnson was an unusually fine type of young man. From boyhood he had an intense interest in farming, and devoted his energies to learning and practicing the best methods of crop culture and dairying, in which he was very successful. His upright character, industry and fine personality won for him the respect and admiration of all who knew him. His death is a sad blow, not alone to his young wife and widowed mother, but to the entire community. Few deaths in recent years have brought forth so many expressions of sympathy.

Besides his wife and mother, he leaves many more distant relatives, all of whom sincerely mourn his death.

The funeral was held Saturday afternoon at the Congregational Church, Rev. G. W. Longenecker officiating.
