While yet a child her parents moved to Hancock county, Illinois, where she grew to womanhood.

On the 11th day of August, 1878, she was united in marriage to Joseph C. Williamson.

They lived in Hancock county until the fall of 1883, when they moved to Clarion, Wright county, Iowa, where they resided until the spring of 1902. They then moved to Worthington, which place has since been their home.

To them were born five children, Royal H., Clarence J., Elon, William J. and Marion Ruth, all of whom survive to mourn the loss of the dearly beloved mother and wife.

For some time Mrs. Williamson has been afflicted with heart trouble and arterial rheumatism, which finally proved fatal to her last Thursday morning. From an early age Mrs. Williams[on] was a devoted christian.

Funeral services were held at the home at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, being conducted by Rev. C.B. Osgood, of Mankato, Minn.
