Mrs. (Alma) Helin, nee Johnson, of Holmes City passed away on Monday, Jan. 11, at 10 p.m., at the Minnewaska hospital in Starbuck, after a few days illness of pneumonia. Although she had been in failing health for the last several years, her sudden death came as a chock and brought sorrow to the family and community.

Alma Hulda Johnson, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Matt Johnson, was born Nov. 10, 1890, in Holmes City where she was baptized. In her infancy the family moved to Duluth where they lived until 1893 when the family homesteaded a farm in Moose Lake, Carlton county, where she grew up and was confirmed in the Lutheran faith by Rev. E. V. Niemi. Together with the family she moved back to Douglas county, Moe township, in 1905. In December, 1914, she was married to Evert Helin in Minneapolis. They lived in Moe township until 1916, where one son was born to them who died in infancy. Later the same year they moved to Duluth. They returned to Douglas county and since 1919 had made their residence in Holmes City.

Surviving are three sisters: Josephine, Mrs. Jacob Haabala, Mayme and Helen, all of Moe township. Five brothers, Emil, William, Isaac, of Moe township, and Edward and Gust Juola of Eklo, Minn. Besides the parents, three sisters and one brother have preceded her in death.

Funeral services were held Jan. 15, at 1 p.m. from the Engstrom Funeral Home and 2 p.m. at the Finnish National Ev. Lutheran church in Moe township. Rev. Kokkanen conducted the services in church. Pallbearers were five brothers, Emil, William, Edward, Isaac and Francis Johnson and one nephew, Archie Haabala. Burial was in the church cemetery.
