Jeanette M. (Carson) Johnson, 84, of Oakland NE


Jeanette M. (Carson) Johnson was born to Glen and Mabel (Olson) Carson in Lyons, Nebraska on February 3, 1933. She passed away August 16, 2017 at Premier Estates of Fremont in Fremont, Nebraska, at the age of 84 years.

Jeanette fell in love and married Dale Oscar Johnson on October 12, 1950 at the Methodist Parsonage in Oakland, Nebraska. Together they built their lives in Oakland and raised a family of four daughters: Kristie, Janelle, Marla and Lynnette. Jeanette and Dale spent 66 years of married life alongside each other.

Jeanette worked at the Oakland Hospital and later assisted Dr. Hadley at his office in Lyons for many years. Following retirement, Jeanette was co-owner of Dime Store Days Antique Mall in Fremont before retiring again in 2012. She was a devoted volunteer at the Golden Oaks Senior Center and a longtime member of First United Methodist Church in Oakland.

Jeanette never stopped moving and doing. She was widely renowned and deeply loved for her extraordinary Swedish rye bread, raisin cream pie and fried chicken. She made certain that Dale’s annual garden produce was canned, frozen or put on the table as part of a garden-fresh summer supper. Christmas at the Johnsons’ was celebrated each year with Jeanette’s Swedish Rice Ring, Ostkaka, and her Swedish Coffee Ring.

Jeanette was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband, Dale; brothers: Lloyd, Donald, Jack, Kenley and three infant brothers; sisters: Mary Lou, Julia, Opal and Joyce.
