Posted in Mabel Obituaries

Mildred Charlotte Anderson Johnson, age 92, of Mabel, Minn., died Thursday, July 10, 2014 at Green Lea Senior Living in Mabel.

Mildred was born March 5, 1922 near Bratsberg, Minn., rural Rushford, Minn., to Melvin and Catherine (Humble) Anderson. She attended Bratsberg Schools and later, when the family moved to a farm near Lanesboro, Minn., attended the Lanesboro High School in the Class of 1940.

She was baptized at the Highland Priarie Lutheran Church and confirmed at Elstad Lutheran Church in rural Lanesboro.

She was united in marriage to LaVerne Johnson of Mabel on October 5, 1940 at the Elstad Lutheran Church.

She worked as a homemaker, assisted with farm work, and nursing assistant at Green Lea Manor for 25 years. She served as organist at Elstad, Scheie, and Garness Lutheran Churches since 1940, and was the pianist for Luther League, LDR, choir, Sunday School, and assisted as pianist for various pastors conducting worship services at Green Lea Manor since 1962.

She held various officer positions at Scheie WELCA, Sunday School Superintendent, and Luther League and LDR advisor. She was a member of “Bits and Pieces Quilt Club” and the former “Mabel Garden Club” and delivered Meals on Wheels, taught several Norwegian baking classes through Mabel Community Education.

Mildred’s special joys were her grandchildren, great grandchildren, memories of co-workers at Green Lea Manor, and church activities. She had a love of all crafts, quilting, gardening, taking care of flowers, cooking especially baking, music, and the chance of playing with the “Chimes” for a short time.

After marriage she and her husband, LaVerne, lived near Newburg, Minn. then moved to Tawney, Minn. area before moving into Mabel in 1985.

Mildred is survived by her two children LaVaughn (Paul) Vitse of Mabel, and Jim (Barb) Johnson of Eau Claire, Wis.; three grandchildren Cassie (Ben) Brenden, Clay (Beth) Johnson, and Camren Johnson; four great grandchildren Hailey and Hannah Brenden, and Myles and Reed Johnson; and sisters-in-law Dagney Anderson, Marian Anderson, Dorothy Anderson, Shirley Ellestad, and Irma Johnson; and several nieces and nephews.
