Carlson, Hanna (Feb. 1853 - 11 Sept. 1930)

Mrs. Hanna Carlson was born in Dorarp, Socken, Kronebergs Lan, Smaland, Sweden, in February 1853.

She immigrated to the United States in 1881, coming to Joliet, Ill. She moved to Abbotsford, Wis., in June 1887, where she was married to Frank Carlson and lived on a farm near this village. They moved to Maple, Wis. in the year 1921, making their home on a farm there.

Her husband passed away at Maple on July 27, 1929. She came down to Abbotsford in April, 1930, where she resided with her sister-in-law, Mrs. Chas. Carlson, and was cared for there until her death. She passed away September 11, 1930, at the age of 76 years and 7 months.

During her last illness only those who were in close contact know how she suffered and all the suffering was born with the fortitude and patience of the true Christian character she possessed.

At all times and under all circumstances she walked in the well beaten path of righteousness and was fully impressed with the idea that at the end of time eternity begins, and the faith that was sustained in the hours of suffering grew brighter toward the journeys end, and the gloom of death was dispelled by the radiance of God’s love.

She leaves to mourn her departure an adopted son, Ernest of Maple, Wis.; one brother, Peter Johnson of Joliet, Ill., and one niece, Mrs. Nels Morine of Western Springs, Ill., other relatives and a host of friends both in this country and in Sweden.

Funeral services were held at the Carlson home Saturday, Sept. 13th, Rev. Sundstrom conducting the services. The remains were then taken to the Cloverland church at Cloverland, Wis., where services were conducted by Rev. Turnquist and Rev. Johnson, and burial was made in the Popular cemetery at Popular, Wis.

The remains were accompanied to their last resting place by Mr. and Mrs. Nels Morine and daughter Myrtle, and Arvid and Alma Carlson.

Those from away attending the services here were the niece, Mrs. Nels Morine and family of Western Springs, a brother, Peter Johnson and wife, and Mr. and Mrs. Walden Johnson of Joliet, Ill.
