The funeral will be held Thursday, services to be conducted at the Episcopal church, of which she was a member, at 10 o’clock by Rev. C. H. Powell, and interment to be in Odd Fellows cemetery at Salem. 
The six members of the supreme court besides Justice Johns will be pallbearers. Mrs. Johns was a woman of high literary taste and it is believed that no other woman in the state was more thoroughly read in good literature than was she. She was active socially while a resident of Portland and after coming to Salem in 1918 and was an ardent participant in all her work activities. She leaves beside her husband, one daughter, Miss Ruth Johns of Salem; two sons, Claude M. Johns, of Oakland, Calif., and Charles A. Johns, Jr., a student at the University of Oregon; three brothers, W. R. Ellis of Oregon City, H. J. Ellis, and C. J. Ellis of Polk county; and two sisters, Mrs. N. L. Butler of Independence and Mrs. W. H. Kuykendall of Baker. Mrs. Johns was born in Iowa, November 15, 1858, and with her parents and other members of the family came to Oregon by mule team in 1865, locating first in Yamhill county where one winter was passed. The family then moved over to Salt Creek in Polk county where they lived for several years, and the next move was to Dallas where the marriage of Mrs. Johns took place on her birthday, November 18, 1882. Mr. and Mrs. Johns lived in Dallas until 1883 when they moved to Baker, living there 24 years and then moving to Portland where six years were spent prior to the first move to Salem in June, 1918, when Judge Johns was elected a member of the supreme court.
