OBITUARY NOTICE: Iroquois County Times, article dated November 1892. Excerpt, "... A deep shadow of gloom was cast over this community on election day when the news was spread that one of our most worthy ans esteemed citizens, Mrs. S. A. John[s], had been killed by the 11:30 passenger train from the north. She had been helping the ladies prepare dinner at the hotel and had gone home for some things and was returning to the hotel when she so suddenly met death. She did not notice the train until it was, alas! too late. ... In 1873 she moved to this place where since she resided. In 1876 she was married to John Johns who died in 1889. ... Mrs. Johns was a true christian lady; devoted to christian work and everything which would tend to lead to a high, noble life. ... It can be truly said of her, to know her was to love her. The home has lost a kind and loving mother, the church and active member and all a good and true friend, but our loss is her eternal gain. Funeral services was conducted by the Revs. Tuggle and Fletcher, under the auspices of the Daughters of Rebecca of which order she was a worthy member. ... Surely "In the midst of life we are in death."
