Johnson, Joyce Angeline (Markovsky) (6 May 1926 - 16 Feb. 2008)
Joyce A. Johnson, 81, died Saturday, February 16, 2008, at her home in Medford surrounded by her family and under the care of Hope Hospice of Medford and Rib Lake.
Joyce Angeline (Markovsky) Johnson was born May 6, 1926, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to Nicholas and Elsie (Carlson) Markovsky. She graduated from Roosevelt High School in the Minneapolis area. Her many jobs included waitressing, working in a camera shop, bookkeeping, and while living in Colby, did bookkeeping at Anderson Insurance Agency. To keep active and challenged in her retirement, Joyce took the treasurer position at Zion Lutheran Church in Colby, which she held for 16 years, just relinquishing her duties this past fall.
Her marriage to Bernard Johnson took place August 10, 1946, in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Shortly thereafter they left for West Palm Beach, Florida, where Bernie was serving in the U.S. Air Force.
She was a member of Zion Lutheran Church in Colby, Wis. Her hobbies included traveling, fishing, playing cards, painting, reading, cooking and being with her family which meant the world to her. Joyce truly enjoyed people and would be found making "new" friends whenever the opportunity arose. Family and friends will forever remember her passion for life, wonderful sense of humor, and positive attitude.
Joyce is survived by her husband, Bernie Johnson, Medford; two daughters, Sandra Johnson of Eau Claire, and Vicky (James) Brost, Medford; and a son, David Johnson of Chippewa Falls. Joyce (Mor Mor) was the proud grandmother of five grandchildren, Lindsey and Tony Brost, Medford, Lucas, Brad and Calvin Johnson, Fall Creek.
A celebration of Joyce's life will be held on Saturday, February 23, at Zion Lutheran Church in Colby, with visitation from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and memorial service following.
