Almira Johnston

Mrs. Almira Johnston whose death occurred yesterday was a native of Oxford county, Ontario, but received her education at Hillsdale Michigan. Then returning to Canada she was married to Dr. Thomas Hankinson in 1860. Three years later they moved to Valparaiso, where Dr. Hankinson entered upon the practice of his profession and where he died in 1876. By this marriage two children were born, George and Thomas, both of whom survive her. Several years later she was united in marriage to Wm. Johnston. One child by this marriage is left.

Mrs. Johnston was so closely identified with every interest of the city an was so highly esteemed that her death even through not expected was not only a cruel blow to her grief stricken relatives but was also a severe shock to the community.

The funeral will take place to-morrow morning at 10 o'clock from the Presbyterian church. Rev. S. N. Willson will deliver the discourse.
