Eva Letitia Johnson, age 90, formerly of Chicago, IL and Neillsville, died at the Heritage Living Center in Park Rapids, MN, May 10, 2006, near her daughter and family.
Eva was born in Chicago, IL, in 1915 to August and Letitia (Henry) Wulff. She lived in Chicago for many years and in 1940, married Clarence Johnson, also of Chicago. They had two daughters, Amy (Richard) Larson, of Park Rapids, MN; and Linda (Jim) Popkes, of Modesto, CA. Eva was a wife and mother for many years. Later, she worked for Continental Insurance in downtown Chicago. When Clarence retired in 1975, they moved to Neillsville to the home Clarence had built. They enjoyed their retirement and their many close friends. Clarence died in 1980, but Eva continued to live in their home for 24 more years, enjoying life in Neillsville, Wis. In 2004, due to health concerns, Eva moved to a senior apartment in Park Rapids, MN, close to Amy and family.
Eva is survived by her two daughters; seven grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
A funeral service for Eva was held Monday, May 15, at the Gesche Funeral Home in Neillsville, Wis. Pastor James Gordon officiated. Interment was in the Neillsville City Cemetery.
