Annie Johnson Death, Obituary – Mrs Annie Wilbur Russell Johnson, West End School of Hogansville alumnus has reportedly died unexpectedly with loved ones, family and the entire community left heartbroken and in grievance. In 1920, when she was just seven years old, her family uprooted and relocated to a farm in Butterfield Township.
She was given her first formal education in a country school that was situated in close proximity to her childhood home, and she was christened at the Presbyterian Church in Butterfield, which is located there. After graduating from Butterfield High School and continuing her education at Minnesota State University, where she received a degree in education, she went on to pursue further education at the University of Minnesota.
Annie was an elementary school teacher for the Odin Public School System for a total of three years during the time she was employed there. She tied the knot with Donald W. Johnson on July 1, 1944, in the United States of America, at the rectory of the Swedish Lutheran Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The location of the ceremony was in the United States. Before making the move to Winthrop, the couple spent the equivalent of one full year living with Don’s parents in their previous residence.
In the end, they chose to make their home in Butterfield, Minnesota, where they operated a farming operation in addition to a nursery business. They moved to Butterfield in 1985, the same year that they became eligible for retirement. Annie was a dedicated follower of the Presbyterian faith and was a member of the St. James, Minnesota congregation of the First Presbyterian Church
