Passes Away at Her Home in
the West

Mrs. Stella Cramer Aikens Johnson, eldest daughter of A. J. Aikens, general manager of the Evening Wisconsin died at her home in Seattle, Wash., at 10:30 o'clock Sunday night., after an illness of several months that was primarily due to an affection of the heart of long standing. Mrs. Johnson leaves a husband and four children - two boys and two girls - ranging in age from 12 to 17 years. They were all present at her bedside when she passed away.

Mrs. Johnson was born in Milwaukee, and received her early education in this city. She was one of the "Wheelock girls," and afterwards a pupil of Mme. Anneke, but her education was completed in Paris, where she resided with her mother and sisters for several years.

Early in live Mrs. Johnson evinced the possession of poetic genius, and when only a little girl she indulged in metrical composition, some of which attracted immediate attention. She became a frequent contributor of to the Evening Wisconsin and other newspapers, and many of her writings were widely copied as literary gems. Several years ago a collection of her verse was published in a beautiful little book for private circulation.

Mrs. Johnson went to Tacoma, Wash., shortly after her marriage twenty years ago, and resided in that city until several years ago, when the family removed to Seattle.
