Johnson, Jean A.
Jean was born on June 11, 1955 in Clintonville as the daughter of Luella (Georgson) Moericke and the late Roy Moericke. Soon after her graduation from Marion High School in 1973, Jean began working for Krause Publications in Iola. She enjoyed making friends with her many co-workers and later retired in the mid 1990s. On June 25, 1988, Jean was united in marriage to LeRoy Johnson at Bethany Evangelical Free Church in Clintonville. The couple enjoyed many years together prior to LeRoy’s passing in 2016. In her spare time Jean enjoyed crafting, working in her flower beds, listening to music, dancing, had a passion for horseback riding, and looked forward to a great sunrise with a cup of coffee in hand. Jean was her family historian and often followed her sentences with “tis true” or “indeede”. She loved her family as they loved her. Jean had a strong faith in her Lord and enjoyed her Bethany family over the years.
