Mildred was born to Albert and Blanche (Inglett) Egge on March 19, 1916 and was baptized at the Elstad Lutheran Church. Her parents, along with two older brothers and a younger sister, lived and farmed just north of Lanesboro. Mildred started attending school in Lanesboro and walked the three miles to town each day until she proudly graduated from Lanesboro High School in 1935.

Mildred married Kenneth George Johnson August 26, 1939. The couple celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary in August 1989. They resided in Lanesboro, where they raised their family of three sons and a daughter. She also worked as a waitress and clerk, especially enjoying fifteen years at a local drug store.

She taught Sunday School and was the church librarian for many years. She was also on the board of the Lanesboro Public Library, as well as a den mother for Cub Scouts.

Mildred was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, her son and grandson, Bob and Todd Johnson; daughter-in-law Elaine Johnson; infant sister Beulah; and her two brothers and their wives, Arnold and Rose Egge and Byron and Judy Egge.

She is survived by her son, Jerry of Lanesboro; son, David (Chess) of Pine Island; daughter, Linda (Mike) Erickson of Henderson, Colo.; and a sister, Celsie Martin of Prairie du Chien, Wis. Also surviving are the joys of her life, 10 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.
