Obituary for Marjorie Ann Johnson

Marjorie “Marge” A. Johnson passed away on Thursday, August 2, 2018, at her residence in Worthington, MN.
Marge was born on November 16, 1923, in Windom, MN, the daughter of Anna (Anderson) and Chester Peterson. Before graduating from Windom High School in 1941, she met her future husband, Sterling L. “Nuts” Johnson. He was honorably discharged after serving his country in the Navy. They were married on January 14, 1946, and raised their three children in Worthington until Sterling’s career moved them to Madison, WI in 1964. Upon his passing, she returned to her roots in the early 90’s, sharing a home with her brother-in-law, Leonard.
Active socially, Marge and Nuts made numerous life lasting friends wherever they resided. An avid card player, Bridge in particular, she played whenever possible, live and online, until the day she was finally peacefully dealt out of her foursome. A longtime member of Worthington Country Club, she golfed into her 90’s. She was an active charter member of the Worthington Elks, a member of Westminster Presbyterian Church, and a selfless care giver for any in need, particularly Johnson males.
Mother, grandmother – great and great-great, she was preceded in death by her husband; daughter, Jan Stevenson; son, Gary; special in-laws, Dorothy (Roy) Wilson, Leonard (Jean) Johnson, and Rod and Shirley Brooks. She is survived by her son, Dale and Beverly Daniels-Johnson; son-in-law, Bill Stevenson; grandchildren, Shelby (Ben) Hubor, Brett (Pascal) Stevenson, Justin Lachnor-Casino Johnson, and Ariane Daniels, three great grandchildren and two great grandchildren. She is truly missed.
She will join her husband in a family gathering on Saturday, August 18, 2018, at the Round Lake Cemetery followed by a visitation from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Benson Funeral Home in Worthington, MN.
Benson Funeral Home in Worthington is in charge of the arrangements.
