Barbara Jean Johnson, 81, passed peacefully on Tuesday, August 3, 2021 after her battle with cancer.
Barbara was born to Raymond and Florence Bloomquist on March 24, 1940 in Chisago City, Minnesota. She married her loving husband of 61 years, Stuart Johnson, on April 23, 1960. She got to know many people through her years of volunteering, involvement with Zion Lutheran Church, attending loved ones' sporting events, and working locally as a Red Cross swim instructor and as a Pharmacy Technician at Chisago Drug.
She will be remembered for several admirable qualities, but ultimately, for her fun-loving personality, spunkiness, love, and generosity.
Barbara is preceded in death by her parents and infant brother Robert. She is survived by her husband Stuart; sister Beverly (Joe) Todaro; daughters Susan (Tom) Swanson and Sandra (Jon) Nickelson; grandchildren, Andrea (Grant) Tomsche, Allen Nickelson, Krista Swanson, and Rachel (Matt) Merrick; great-grandchildren, Ila and Olin Tomsche; sister-in-law Judy (Tyler) Smith; nieces, nephews, great/grand-pets, and many very dear friends and colleagues.
