Obituary for Jean Juni Johnson

Jean Juni Johnson (86) passed away peacefully on January 23, 2020 after a brief hospitalization.

A memorial service for her will be held on Saturday, February 1st at 2:00 pm at Christ Lutheran Church in Faribault with Pastor Carol Sinykin officiating. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to River Bend Nature Center or Christ Lutheran Church in Jean's memory.

Jean was born January 6, 1934 to Emery and Viola (Juni) Lindesmith in Owatonna, MN. She graduated from Owatonna High School in 1952 and from Macalester College in 1956. With her degree in elementary education she taught kindergarten in Denver, CO. for 2 years. It was there she met Doug Johnson, whom she married in 1959 – then moving to Faribault.

Doug and Jean were blessed with one daughter – Lisa. Jean loved being a Mom and spent Lisa's growing up years raising her and volunteering in the community. Following her divorce Jean spent 25 years working as a para professional in the Faribault Public Schools. She retired in 1999.

She loved people, especially children; and she nurtured relationships with family, high school, college and community friends. She greatly valued her faith in Jesus Christ and her church family. She loved music, cooking, making greeting cards, nature's beauty and enjoyed them throughout her life.

She is survived by her daughter Lisa (Jerry) Kertesz of Tucson, AZ; 3 granddaughters, Ashley LeRoy of Philadelphia, PA; Kelsey and Brianna Williams of Ft Worth, TX; 1 brother, Robert (Karen) Lindesmith of Minneapolis, MN; 1 sister, Judy (Steve) Herzog of Tucson; 2 nieces, Jayne Lindesmith and Julie (Jim) O'Brien, both of the Twin Cities; and 1 nephew, Paul Herzog (Michelle) also of Tucson.
