Mavis Arlene Johnson was born on November 8, 1930 on the family farm near Melvin, Iowa, the daughter of Herman and Emma (Recher) Huck. She attended school in Melvin and graduated from Melvin High School in 1949. Following graduation, Mavis worked at a grocery store in Melvin and later as a telephone operator in Sibley, Iowa.

On October 13, 1951, Mavis and LeRoy “Tony” Johnson were united in marriage at the Lutheran church in Melvin. They lived for a brief time in Sibley before moving to the family farm south of Hartley. Along with raising her children, Mavis assisted Tony with farming and livestock.

Mavis was an active member of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Hartley. She taught Sunday School, participated in a bible study, Ladies’ Aid, the Mary Circle and LWML. She was an avid flower gardener, Bridge player and golfer. At home she was known for her cooking, baking Danish pastries and sewing. Second to her faith was the love she had for her family. Mavis loved following her children’s and grandchildren’s activities. She looked forward to the annual Johnson campout which is in its 30th year.

Grateful to have shared her life is her children, Vicky Kilian of Sioux Falls, SD; Connie and Kent Thompson of Forest City, IA; Jerry and Dawn Johnson of Park Rapids, MN; Jay and Lisa Johnson of Hartley, IA and Amy and Brian Baier of Brandon, SD; 13 grandchildren, Katherine Kilian, Allison (Brian) Strommen, Brooke (Kyle) Dennis, Kelli Thompson, Jill (Mickey) Johnson, Jenni (Eric) Hosler, Jessi (Troy) Vankempen, Jason Johnson, Travis Johnson, Tim Johnson; Keith Johnson; Emma Baier and Brandon Baier; 15 great-grandchildren; a brother-in-law, Duane Johnson of Arnolds Park, IA; and several nieces and nephews.
