Lived Over Fifty Years in Berkeley

BERKELEY, May 15--Funeral services for Mrs. Louise Johnson, wife of Charles M. Johnson, resident of Berkeley for more than half a century, were held this afternoon from the family home, 2317 Carlton street, with Rev. Raymond C. Brooks, pastor of the First Congregational church, officiating.

Mrs. Johnson was the daughter of the late Mr. and mrs. G? Guenett, pioneers of Berkeley, and was only three weeks old when brought to the college city by her parents, 59 years ago.

Besides her husband, Mrs. Johnson is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Grace Patty, Mrs. Lula McNeill, and Miss Muriel Johnson. She was a sister of Mrs. C. H. Spear of Berkeley and Mrs. M. L. Gore of San Francisco.
