Mrs. Eberhart Johnson, who has had heart trouble for some time, passed away rather suddenly, Saturday morning, at her home about three miles southwest of Lyle, where the family has resided the past 39 years.

She is survived by her husband, one brother, Chas. Berg, of Velva, N. D.; and the following named sons and daughters: Mrs. Fred Nelson, Mrs. Geo. Kilgore, Mrs. Will Kilgore, Mrs. Gilbert Carlson, Miss Julia Johnson of Austin, Edwin Johnson of Des Moines and Jack Johnson of Minneapolis, all of whom were present at the funeral; 16 grand children, and one grand child.

Alette Gunderson Berg passed away, Oct. 5th, 1929 at the age of 75 years, 3 months and 26 days. She was born in Grue Solor, Norway, June 8th, 1854 and was baptized and was united in marriage to Eberhart confirmed at the same place.

In 1883, she came to America and Johnson at St. Ansgar, Iowa. To this union were born nine children, 2 having died in infancy. Mrs. Johnson has always lived in Otranto Township, and for the past 39 years resided at the same place.

She was a true and faithful church worker, always happy in helping others. Although her burdens were many, they were carried cheerfully by her as she always trusted in the Lord for comfort. Mrs. Johnson, who truly loved her family, was a loyal wife and mother. Being a friend to all who knew her, she will be greatly missed by all. A kind, loving wife and mother is now at rest.

The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon, and interment was made in Pleasant Hill Cemetery.

"Engelen Ved Sygesengen"

Tys! lad stilhed brede
Fredens vinger ud,
En kun er tilstede
Engelen sendt av Gud.

Hor den syge sukker,
Hor den matte Rost;
Oiet traet sig lukker
Men der hvisker trost.

Trost i kampens hede,
Trost mod Dodens Gru:
Han er her tilstede,
Som har hjälp endnu

Han som for dig dode,
Kjobte med sit blod,
Vil den strid forsade.
Gjore Enden god.
