Translation Request

Surnames: Sveinsson
I found an article in a Winnipeg newspaper that I believe relates the death of my great grandmother, but google translate doesn't explain it all. It looks like that may be because some of the words have extra spaces in them, but I'm not sure how to piece it all together.

All I could gather is that my great grandfather was left a widower with four children. She was so young when she passed away and I'm wondering what may have happened. Any help translating would be much appreciated!

Died, on the 16th of this month, at 245 Norumbega Drive, Monrovia, Calif., Mrs. Ása Jónsdóttir, after a long period of bad health. She was the daughter of farmer Rafn Norman and his wife.

Ása was an intelligent and attractive woman, whose spirit was not defeated by her illness. She is survived by her husband, Jóhannes Sveinsson and four children, three boys and one girl.

Her funeral took place on the 17th of this month.

The numerous friends of the widower in this town and elsewhere express their sympathy and offer their condolences during this period of mourning.
