Paulson, Johanna (22 JAN 1856 - 13 FEB 1931)

Mrs. H. Paulson died Friday morning, Feb. 3, 1931, at her home in the village (Dorchester, Clark Co., Wis.) after a serious illness of a number of weeks duration. Neuritis and complications was the cause, from which she suffered terribly, but the end came sweetly and quietly and she slipped away to be with her Maker.

The funeral was held Monday afternoon, first from the house and then at the Little White Church at 2 o’clock, Rev. F.P. Walter officiating. Interment took place in the cemetery south of town (Memorial South), Herman Marquardt, John Buehrens, Joseph Pueschner Sr., Nels Laveen, Andrew and E.M. Sorenson acting as pallbearers, and Gertrude Laack, Jane Martens, Lila Walter, Elvera Laabs, Dorothy Herman, Vera Walter, Maxine Garvue and Eva Ugoretz acted as flower girls.

Johanna Hanson was born in Helsingborg, Sweden, Jan. 22, 1856 and was 75 years and 21 days at time of death. She came to the United States at the age of 24 and made her home at Waupaca, Wis.

Three years later she was united in marriage with Ole Paulson of Wausau, and went there to live, but they had only been there a short time when they moved to Stetsonville where Mr. Paulson was engaged in the lumber business. He soon transferred his interest to Dorchester and here the family has since resided. Lumbering is a past industry in this section so Mr. Paulson has been in the northern section for a number of years and is at present situated at Park Falls.

Seven children, five sons and two daughters, were born to them. Three sons have preceded her in death, one in infancy, Frank in 1921 and Ansel in 1927, and the living children are Gutch, Olga, Edna and Edgar, all home except Olga, who is a High School instructor at Park Falls. Besides her children, Mrs. Paulson leaves seven grandchildren and one great grandchild to mourn her loss.

Not only will they miss her, for we shall all miss her sorely. Always present at church, when she was well enough, at the Ladies Aid and also taking a vital interest in the public school and the P.T.A. meetings, though she was quiet and said little, she helped in every way she could and we shall miss this kindly, quiet lady everywhere. Our hearts, too, will mourn the host of other friends and relatives.

May God’s richest blessing be poured out on her loved ones and comfort, such as only He can give, be theirs.
