February 23, 1911

Mrs. Chas. J. Johnson died in the faith of her Saviour at her home in Stratford Tuesday, February 14, 1911, at the age of 83 years, 11 months and 19 days. She had been in poor health for some time, gradually failing since last summer and was confined to her bed for eleven days, the cause of her death being due to the infirmities of old age.

Anna Kristina Moling was born February 25, 1827, in Sjarsta socken, Linkoppings Lan, Sweden. She was confirmed in the Lutheran church at Sweden at the age of eighteen years and was married to Chas. J. Johnson, March 1, 1853. They came to America in the same year, locating in Hardin Township, Webster County, Iowa. In 1872 moved to Marion Township, where they resided for 22 years, afterwards moving to Stratford, where she lived until her death, a period of 17 years. Being a pioneer resident of this community she has endured many hardships of pioneer life and has witnessed the growth of Stratford and the surrounding country.

Eight children were born to this union - four boys and four girls, all of whom are living, and of this entire family her's is the first death. The children with the exception of one reside at Stratford and are as follows: John P. Johnson, Estherville, Iowa; Allen, Swan M., Mrs. Anna Louisa Poulson, Chas. G., Mrs. Hattie V. Andrews, Mrs. Josephine Anderson and Mrs. Mary Eckstein. Besides these children, an aged husband, twenty-two grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, numerous relatives and a host of friends are left to mourn her departure.

Funeral services were held Friday afternoon at the residence and at the Lutheran church, of which she was a faithful and devoted member, Rev. N.E. Kron of Dayton paying a beautiful tribute to the memory of the deceased. A large crowd attended the funeral and paid their last respects to the departed one, and after all had been permitted to look for the last time on the face of the departed one, the sad cortege moved on to the South Marion Cemetery, where the remains were interred.
