Ida Johnson

[ 15 ]

IDA JOHNSON, fifth in the line of chil­dren of Swan and Kjerstin Johnson, was born October 20, 1865, at Wiby, Sweden. Following the fam­ily in its immi­gra­tions and jour­neys west­ward, she lived at Chicago, Illinois, Bement, Illinois, and at the farm home near Genoa, Nebraska, where she grew to wom­an­hood. She had a happy, sunny dis­po­si­tion, and the early years in the midst of their large fam­ily were joy­ous with song, play and work.

On December 27, 1891, she was united in mar­riage with John W. Johnson, of Arlington, Nebraska. To them were born five chil­dren: Mabel Evelyn, now teach­ing in the Shorewood School at Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Earle Edward, lead­ing Dentist of Rutland, Vermont; Walter Johnson, oper­at­ing a store in Lincoln, Nebraska; Gladys Marie who is now Mrs. Albert M. Hinman, of Newman Grove, Nebraska, and Norman Floyd, asso­ci­ated with Earle E. as Dentist in Rutland, Vermont.

Earle E. united in mar­riage with Katherine Kinsman, of Rutland, Vermont. They have three chil­dren: Lorraine, Marilyn and Carolyn.

Walter mar­ried Gladys Thompson, of Lincoln, Nebraska, and they have an adopted daugh­ter, Patricia Ann.

Gladys, with Albert M. Hinman, has two chil­dren — Arthur Lee, and John Stuart.

Norman Floyd united in mar­riage with Katherine King, of Lincoln, Nebraska. They have three chil­dren — Raymond Earle, Lyman Walter, and Carlene King Johnson.

Ida — Mrs. John W. Johnson — passed away May 5, 1903, in Genoa, Nebraska, and was laid to rest in the Valley View Cemetery at Genoa.

Ida was a sweet singer. Almost every evening the fam­ily gath­ered around the organ or melodeon which Ida played, and they sang hymns. “The Sweet Bye and Bye” was Ida’s favorite.
