Evergreen Washelli Memorial Park and Funeral Home, also known as Oak Lake Cemetery, Washelli Cemetery, 11111 Aurora Ave. N., Seattle, King Co., WA. Thanks to Find-A-Grave for making these images available.

The Evergreen-Washelli Cemetery was founded in 1884 by David T. Denny (1832-1903) and his wife Louisa Boren Denny (1827-1916) on one of their many land investments in Seattle's north end. The cemetery straddles Aurora Avenue N beginning just beyond N 109th Street. Most members of David's branch of Denny family and that of his cousin Henry Levi Denny are buried there. Begun as the Oak Lake Cemetery, Washelli entered into a series of mergers with the newly organized Evergreen Cemetery in the 1920s. Today, Evergreen-Washelli Cemetery maintains operations on grounds that span both sides of Aurora Avenue N, overlooking interments dating from 1884 to present. There are many sections within Evergreen-Washelli that include the Veterans Memorial Cemetery and sections devoted to religious communities, fraternal organizations, civil service and ethnic groups.


Carl E. Johnson was born June 10, 1871, in Swano, Sweden.

Alma Christina Freeberg was born September 25, 1882, in Sweden.

The 1900 U. S. Census taken on June 9, 1900, shows Swan Larson (age 39) born February 1861 in Sweden to Swedish-born parents and first married at age 18 and having emigrated in 1888 and a Naturalized citizen is a Foreman at the Railroad and renting his house at 308 Eighth Street, 2nd Ward, City of Duluth, 4th District, St. Louis Co., MN. Living with him is his wife Hilda S. Larson (age 37) born May 1863 in Sweden to Swedish-born parents and emigrating in 1894 with all 5 of the children born to her still alive. Also living at home are their children, who are unmarried: Alma C. Larson (age 17) born September 1882 in Sweden to Swedish-born parents and emigrating in 1894 who is a Servant; Charles O. Larson (age 16) born April 1884 in Sweden to Swedish-born parents and emigrating in 1894 who is a Cook; Albert L. Larson (age 13) born October 1886 in Sweden to Swedish-born parents and emigrating in 1894; Joseph E. Larson (age 4) born June 1895 in Montana to Swedish-born parents; and Liana M. Larson (age 2) born February 1898 in Montana to Swedish-born parents.

According to both Vincent and Don Cain, Carl Johnson (Alma's husband) left for the Alaska Gold Rush at one point, and then returned. He never told anyone how he did with his mining but Steven Cain does not think he worked much after that. He did build the apartment at 602 42nd street and that is where Alma lived and died.

The 1910 U. S. Census taken on April 22, 1910, shows Carl Johnson (age 38) born in Sweden to Swedish-born parents and having emigrated in 1900 and Naturalized is an unmarried House Carpenter owning his own house at 602 N. 42nd Street, 9th Ward, City of Seattle, King Co., WA. There are numerous families renting at this address, so this was a large rooming house.

Six children survive, including Mrs. Alma Johnson and sons, Oscar and Joseph, all of Seattle Wash., Albert of Miles City, Mrs. Gladys Cain of Eden Valley, Minn., and Alvin of St. Louis, Mo. The services at the chapel were deeply impressive. Floral tributes carried their silent and beautiful messages of sorrow over her passing. They were the expressions of the esteem and regard extended by relatives and friends who valued the life and influence of Mrs. Freeberg. The musical renditions were appropriately expressive also of the sympathy felt and to sorrow experienced because Mrs. Freeberg's life had been brought to a close. The words of the officiating minister served in a measure to assuage the natural grief felt because of her passing. The honorary escort at the funeral services included W. N. Hawkins and Nils Lindeberg, who were old time friends of Mrs. Freeberg. The regular pallbearers were Alf Johnson, Wilbur Turner, John Doull, John Swanson, O. B. Reynolds and Sam Carlson.
