About Celia Ann Johnson

Obituary - Long Prairie Leader, Long Prairie, MN
Issue Thursday, May 4, 1944
Well Known and Long Time Resident of the County Died April 24.

Had Been a Resident of Minnesota Since Coming Here in 1864

Funeral services were conducted last Thursday afternoon for Mrs. Miles M. Johnson, well known Little Sauk resident, who passed away April 24th, brief mention of whose death was made in last week's Leader.
The rites were conducted at the Little Sauk Lutheran church with Rev. Royal Peterson officiating and interment was made in Evergreen cemetery in this village with Axel E. Larson, Clarence Bateman, James Custis, Ralph Thompson, Helmer Flan and Wm. Thompson as pallbearers.

Celia Ann Baker, daughter of Hyson Freeland and Rachel Anne Baker, was born March 23, 1863, in Adams County, Ohio. In 1864 the family moved to Minnesota and to the southern part of the state and then to Missouri. In 1882 she returned to Minnesota and to Clotho. On April 5, 1887, she was married in Long Prairie to Miles M. Johnson and the following year they moved to Little Sauk to what is known as the old Ahlstrand farm where they lived until 1900 when they moved to Round Prairie. They resided there until 1930 when they moved to Little Sauk which continued her home until her death.

Mrs. Johnson was a pioneer resident of Minnesota, coming here in the early days. She was a cheerful neighbor and always willing to help those in need and took a deep interest in her community and church. While she had been in somewhat failing health for a time, no change was noticed in her condition until after Easter when she was stricken with pneumonia, death coming after less than two weeks illness, a great shock to her family and friends.

Surviving her death are Mr. Johnson and the following children: Claud of Grey Eagle, Lloyd of Clotho, Mable Aldrich of Verndale, 17 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. Two sons preceded her in death, Freeland Clinton on October 6, 1908, and Herbert on July 2, 1929. Also surviving are the following brothers: George Baker of Ohio, Tom, Kelly, Elijah and Sheridan Baker of Washington.
