Johnson, Evelyn I. (21 November 1927 27 January 2010)


Evelyn I. Johnson, 82, of Osseo died Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2010, at Luther Hospital in Eau Claire.


Evelyn, the first daughter in a family of 10 children, was born Nov. 21, 1927, to Harold W. and Julia (Thompson) Jacobson on the home farm in the Town of Northfield.  She was baptized and confirmed at Pigeon Falls Evangelical Lutheran Church.  She attended York Elementary School, graduated from Hixton High School in 1945 and attended the Beauty School of Cosmetology in Eau Claire. Evelyn worked in the office of Osseo Hospital & Nursing Home for many years.


Evelyn married Harlan Johnson Oct. 23, 1948, at the Northfield Lutheran Church.  They celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in 2008.  They had three daughters, Peggy, Paula and Lori.


Evelyn is survived by her husband, Harlan; daughters, Peggy (David) Lundberg of Osseo and Paula (Richard) Stewart of Manitowish Waters; three grandchildren, Kristin (Chad) Frane, Brock (Tracy) Lundberg and Erinn (Jim) Letts; eight great-grandchildren, Graham, Gustaf and Greta Frane, Brenna and Bennett Lundberg and Owen, Evan, and Mia Letts.  She is also survived by sisters, Alice Ohlrogge, Hilma Jacobson, Betty (Jack) Mansfield and Marian (Ron) Paulson, and sisters-in-law, Carol Jacobson, Mary Jacobson and Twila Jacobson.  She is also survived by many nieces and nephews.


Evelyn was preceded in death by a daughter, Lori Jacobson; her parents; five brothers, Willard, Eldon, Harlan, Donald and Richard; and godson, Steven Jacobson.


Evelyn was the most amazing, energetic, fun grandma in the world.  She created great memories with each grandchild and great-grandchild. She was loving and generous, always ready to play a game, do a project and loved to spend time with her family.


Evelyn was honored to be the godmother of 12.  She made friends easily throughout her life and remembered them in little ways.  She enjoyed Tuesday Card Club, Church Women of Osseo Evangelical Lutheran Church and especially her dear Bridge Club girls, whom she played with for more than 60 years.


Funeral services were held at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2020, at Osseo Evangelical Lutheran Church with burial in Osseo Cemetery.
