She was married to Charles A. St. John, Oct. 5, 1868, in Boscobel, Wisconsin, who died May 28, 1896. To this union were born six children: Vern E. St. John, Minco, Okla., Sidney A.

She united with the Christian church in early womanhood and has since remained a faithful member. During her illness she often spoke of her Lord and Savior and expressed her desire to be able to attend church service. She was a loving and devoted wife and mother, and leaves many dear friends to mourn her departure.
