Obituary for Alma Johnson

Alma Johnson of Luck, WI passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, May 25, 2014 after battling cancer for one year. She was born in Tyler, Minnesota on May 3, 1931 to Aage and Kamma Grumstrup. In 1940 they moved to Luck, Wisconsin where she attended Luck elementary and high schools, graduating in 1949. Alma attended Grand View College in Des Moines, Iowa studying music, and with her beautiful alto voice, many times performed as a soloist with the Grand View Choir. She met Ray Johnson, the love of her life, at Grand View and they were married at West Denmark on July 27, 1952. After Ray returned from the Korean War they lived and farmed in the Cedar Falls, Iowa (Fredsville) area. They retired and moved to Luck in 1996. Throughout her life, Alma shared her vocal talents at Fredsville and West Denmark as well as with local choral groups. That voice will always be missed. In addition to singing, she was active in both congregations, enjoyed cooking, baking, and teaching her children to prepare Danish delicacies. Flowers were always important to her and her house was filled with them, freshly cut from outside gardens. Alma excelled as a homemaker and mother to her three children and also worked as a teachers aide in Dike, Iowa. Alma is survived by her husband Ray, son David (Karen) of Petaluma, California, daughter Susan Lannoo (Mike) of Terre Haute, Indiana, son Paul (Patty) of Logan, Utah, brother Erling Grumstrup of Solvang, California, and grandsons Samuel, Phillip, Peter, Jakob, and Daniel.
