Elsie Johnson

Obituary of Elsie Lucille Johnson

Elsie Lucille Johnson, age 88, of North Branch left this earth to join the love of her life with the Lord on November 14, 2020. She was surrounded with love by those who meant the most to her, her children. 

Elsie was born August 26, 1932 in Elmira Michigan to Clint and Zana (Beckwith) Lamerson.   She grew up in Lapeer Michigan where she met her husband of 66 years Lynn Johnson whom she married in 1952.  Elsie dedicated her life to her children; Mike (Susan) of Brown City, Dave (Marian) of Sears, Amy (Robert) Robinet of Lapeer, Dan (Kim) of North Branch, Matt (Laura) of Ubly, Brad (Kim) of Lizton Indiana, and Josh (Melanie) of Lapeer.

Elsie spent most of her adult life raising her family, working on the family farm as well as working at Lapeer Regional Hospital for nearly 20 years.  Elsie’s life demonstrated love lived intentionally.   She had the ability to love her children as if each was an only child, yet, when together, her love multiplied rather than divided.   From her garden, to her cooking, to the slippers and quilts she made, she showered all those who received with the love she poured into her creations.   She was known for her sense of humor and her love and kindness to all who encountered her.  

She is survived by six sons and daughters-in-law, one son-in-law, fifteen grandchildren, eighteen great grandchildren, brother Douglas (Genie) Lamerson, and sister in law Geneva Johnson.  She was preceded in death by her parents, stepfather Orley Pickering, husband Lynn, daughter Amy Robinet, granddaughter Marcia Johnson and great grandson William Nadrowski.

The family would like to send a special thank you to Angela’s House of Imaly City and Marlette Hospice House.   Memorial contributions in memory of Elsie may be made to the Marlette Hospice House 2770 Main Street, Marlette, MI  48453.

Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Elsie's Life will take place at a later date.  Arrangements entrusted to Jansen Family Funeral Home - Columbiaville.   Share memories, condolences, and pictures with the family at www.jansenfuneralhome.com
