Johnson, Mary (25 FEB 1862 - 19 MAR 1940)

Greenwood, Clark County, Wis. - Mrs. Mary Johnson, 78, died Tuesday night at 10 o'clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs. W. E. Hubble. Mrs. Johnson had been in poor health since last May, and had been confined to her bed since Aug. 1939. Death was caused by hardening of the arteries and by influenza, which developed several days before her death.

Funeral services will be conducted Saturday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock at the home of her son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Johnson, and at 2 o'clock at the Trondhjem Lutheran Church. The Rev. M. K. Aaberg will have charge of the rites, and burial will take place in the Greenwood Cemetery.

Mrs. Johnson, nee Mary Peterson, was born in Trondhjem, Norway, Feb. 25, 1862. When she was 11 years old she came to Greenwood with her parents, and had since lived in this community.

Her marriage to Simon Johnson took place about 61 years ago. After their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Johnson moved to a farm, 2 1/2 miles northeast of Greenwood, where she made her home up to the time of her illness. Her son, Leonard, and family are living on the old Johnson farm. Mr. Johnson died in 1917.

Surviving are one son, Leonard, Greenwood; Mrs. P. M. (Amanda) Johnson, Greenwood; Mrs. David (Selma) Gustafson, Chicago; and Mrs. Sigrud (Olga) Johnson, Loyal; one brother, P. E. Peterson, Greenwood; two sisters, Mrs. Annie Dyre and Mrs. William Hogue, both of Greenwood; 20 grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren.

One son and two daughters also preceded her in death.
