March 14, 1945 ~ January 18, 2011
LoAnn Johnson Fetzer was born March 14, 1945, to Edwin and Adelaide (Hetletved) Johnson in Robinson, ND. She graduated from Tuttle High School in 1963 and then received her Degree in Elementary Education from Valley City State University in 1967.
LoAnn married Leonard Fetzer August 12, 1967 in Robinson, N.D. They moved to Grafton, N.D. until 1981 at which time they made their home in Fargo. She was a teacher for 33 years, retiring in 2010 from Jefferson Elementary.
As a devoted mother, grandmother and teacher, children were always a priority to her. Many describe her as the sweetest person they know who was so kind and generous to others with her time and energy. LoAnn had a passion for reading, enjoyed a nightly game of solitaire, lunching with friends and occasional shopping trip. She was a talented seamstress who made quilts and blankets for her grandkids and there was no shortage of food in the home as she was always baking or trying out a new recipe. LoAnn also enjoyed music and she sang in the choir at Olivet Lutheran Church for many years.
She is survived by her husband of 43 years, Leonard; children, Lanny (Virginia), Lana (Matt), Landon; grandchildren; Mia Frice-Fetzer, Brindelyn Fetzer, Adalee and Elijah Anderson; mother, Adelaide Johnson; siblings, Eunice (Myron) Meidinger, Burdell (Theo) Johnson, and Janell (John) Quinlan.
She was preceded in death by her father, Edwin Johnson.
