OBITUARY - MARTHA JOHNSTON.

Martha JOHNSTON, daughter of Michael and Jane JOHNSTON, was born in Holmes county, Ohio, October 5, 1839, and passed away at the home of her niece, Miss Sophonia (sic) JOHNSTON, September 7, 1925, aged 85 years, 11 months and 2 days.

She came to Iowa in her early girlhood, grew to womanhood here and spent most of her life in this state.

Hers was a jolly, happy disposition and wherever she went she sought to spread sunshine and gladness.

When just a girl she gave her life to the Master and united with the Methodist church of which she ever remained a faithful member.

About four years ago she came to make her home with her niece, Miss JOHNSTON, who has tenderly cared for her during the long months of her illness.

Beside nephews and nieces she leaves one sister who lives in Ohio.

Funeral services were held at the home of her niece, Miss JOHNSTON, Tuesday afternoon, conducted by her pastor, Rev. Alta M. NICHOLS, assisted by T. S. RHOADES, and interment made in the Johnston cemetery [ near Kellerton, Ringgold County, Iowa].

NOTE: Martha's mother, Jane (?) JOHNSTON died on November 11, 1890 at the age of 85 years, 2 months and 26 days with interment at Johnston Cemetery near Kellerton. Martha's niece, Sophronia JOHNSTON, was born on August 17, 1857, and died on September 17, 1939 and was interred at Johnston Cemetery near Kellerton, Ringgold County, Iowa.
