“Lucy” was born to the late Ernest and Anna Johnson, July 17, 1916, in Oak Park Minnesota. As a young adult she moved to California where she held various jobs and began a family. Later she returned to Estes Brook, Mn to be near extended family.

Lucy’s life was filled with love for God, family, and friends. Her smile and willingness to help others were always on display.
She spent many happy years traveling between Minnesota, California, and the Southeast visiting loved ones.
Late in life when dementia made communication difficult, singing hymns with her daughter brought peace and contentment.

Lucy  is survived by a sister, Ester Swanson of Tustin, California; a brother, Virgil Johnson, of Milaca, Minnesota; and her daughter, Jeanette Mollura, of Fripp Island, SC.
She is also remembered lovingly by her son-in-law, six grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her son, John, and brothers Lester and Rudolph.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Camp Grace, Roberta, Ga (

A memorial service will be held later this summer in Minnesota.
