Johnson, Karena (15 MAY 1840 - 20 FEB 1925)

Mrs. Ole Johnson died at the farm home of her son, John H., west of the village (Dorchester, Clark County, Wis.), Friday, Feb. 20th, 1925 at the age of 84 years, 8 months and 5 days.

Services were held at 1 o'clock Monday at the home and at St. Peter Lutheran Church an hour later, Rev. V. M. Keiper officiating. Interment took place at the cemetery south of the village.

Karena Larson was born in Sweden May 15th, 1840 and grew to woman's estate there.

She was united in marriage to Olavas Fransen and one son was born to them who lived only two short years.

In 1880 Mr. and Mrs. Fransen came to the United States where he died two years later.

In 1891 she was united in marriage to Ole Johnson and has resided in Dorchester country ever since, excepting six months when they were at Wittenberg.

No one can estimate the value in this world of a kindly, Christian woman like Mrs. Johnson, whose life is a benediction to those about and the world is truly better for her having lived.

She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband, two step-children, eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

The Clarion joins their many friends in offering condolence.
