Lynnea R. Johnson

Lynnea R. Johnson, 63, Marshfield, died on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at Marshfield Medical Center.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, April 28, 2018 at Zion Lutheran Church, Trade Lake, Wisconsin, where the family will receive relatives and friends from 10:00 am until service time. Rev. John Peterson will officiate. Burial will take place in the church cemetery.

Lynnea was born on June 24, 1954 in Siren, Wisconsin, to Lester W. and Ruth E. (Peterson) Johnson. Due to a medical condition that occurred when Lynnea was less than one year old, it resulted in her having cognitive limitations. She was chosen by God to be a special person who touched many lives in her own unique way.  She attended special education at New Richmond High School.  Lynnea lived in various group homes in the Grantsburg, Chippewa Falls and Marshfield areas. Her final residence was at the Atrium Post Acute Care Center in Marshfield. Lynnea was happiest when her family would visit and spend time with her. Her favorite pastimes were playing bingo, watching the “Price is Right” and “Wheel of Fortune”. She taught us how to love unconditionally and to appreciate the simple things in life.

Lynnea is survived by her brother, Leonard (Judith) Johnson of Marshfield and her sister, Nylene (Kenneth) Wicklund of Frederic. She is further survived by three aunts, Edith Engelhart of Grantsburg, Ardy Jones of St. Paul, MN, and Verna Brunnell of Burnsville, MN, in addition to numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her parents and a brother, Maurice.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be designated in Lynnea’s name to Zion Lutheran Church of Trade Lake.
