Sweden was too dark/cold and so was Minnesota and Illinois!

I seek the obituaries of mother and son who moved to sunny Sun City, Arizona.

ELNA ELISABET THERESIA JOHNSON (born Ericksson) left Sweden as a young girl to work as a family maid in Minneapolis in 1913. There she fell in love and married her first husband Ernie Claus Carlson. After he died, she married a Johnson, but not before she had a son.

Her son was named GUNNAR C. KARLSON (he liked K better than C!)born Jan.8, 1916 in Hennepin Co., Minneapolis, Minn. His mother ELNA JOHNSON eventually moved to Sun City,
AZ and died there at the age of 79 in Oct. 1, 1974.

GUNNAR also died in Sun City on May 5, 1995. I have not
found an obit. for either one online, but I do know that GUNNAR Karlson's obit. appeared in Arizona Republic, Sect. CL p. 12, May 09, 1995. Also in Daily News-Sun Sect. A p. 5, May 8, 1995.
I want to know if ELNA and GUNNAR had any heirs or descendants. It is so important to me. Thank you very much.
