Obituary for Ann Johnson

Ann passed away December 12, 2018 surrounded by compassion and mercy. Near-by family came to her after  passing away, to pay respects on behalf for all. Soon after this family time to remember her, Ann departed for Auburndale Florida, the place she held in her heart as her hometown, there she will be interned in a family plot with her father and mother, Loyed and Mirell Johnson.

Moving to Iowa in 1973 with her husband and family Ann lived and worked for many years in the local area. Working in Ridgeway at the Koffee Kup, Kozy Korner and the Ridgeway Elementary School as a cook, she also owned and operated a drapery and sewing notion store called The Southern Bell, and also worked at Minona Wire in Decorah. Eventually she pursued her lifelong dream in Nursing, taking college courses in Calmar. Her work began in local care facilities as a nurse.  Upon completing her Nursing Degree she returned to her hometown of Auburndale, she continued working in care facilities and also as a Hospice Nurse. She continued this labor of love and mercy in the Auburndale area until she retired. 

In 2014 she moved back to the Cresco area where she was able to see family, friends and former co-workers that she knew and loved for so many years, she was greatly enjoyed by all, including the care staff she interacted with.

Ann was married to Orville Milton Johnson. To this union four children were born, Michael (Judy) Johnson, Michelle (Larry) Briggs, Deborah (Vic) Ryan, Wesley (Suzie) Johnson.

Through Ann’s four children, she was blessed with many grandchildren: Benjamin Johnson, Caleb (Tesha) Johnson, Nathan Johnson (Renee), Rebekah Johnson (Tom), Melissa (Ryan) Bronemann, Bryan Hageman (Jaclyn), Natalie Dreier (Cody), Brady Dreier, Shawn (Jessie) Henry, Cody (Trista) Ollendieck, Megan (Noah) Ball, Ashleigh (Gavin) Markley, Damien Johnson, Dylan Johnson and Axton Johnson.

Through Ann’s grandchildren her blessings continue with several great grandchildren: Abriana, Landen, Ava, Amara, Brennan, Brynnlee, Braelynn, Clayton, Keirah, Lexus, Aston, Zoii, and Wyatt.

She will be greatly missed, and fondly remembered for her love, caring, and fun loving personality.  Peace and healing are now yours in the arms of Christ, there with the Family of God, Amen.

Two things I ask of you, Lord; do not refuse me before I die: Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the LORD?’ Or I may become so poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.  Proverbs 30:7-9
