She proudly completed her Licensed Practical Nursing degree in Thief River Falls, MN. She worked in Minneapolis and Fargo as an LPN. She had a special love for working with children. This prepared her for her life’s work being a mother of 8 children and grandmother of 10. It was while working at St. Luke’s Hospital in Fargo, that she met Goodwin Johnson who had recently returned from serving in the Korean War. They were married on July 11, 1953 in Clearbrook, MN. They raised their family in Horace, ND.

The family would like to thank the staffs of Bethany on University and Ethos Hospice for their excellent care and comfort they have provided.
Donna will be remembered for her kindness, loving dedication to her family, strong Christian faith, and her delicious cinnamon rolls, buns, pies, and cookies.
