Obituary for Cecelia I. Johnson
Cecelia Irene (Zais) Johnson, 86, died on Tuesday, December 18, 2012, at her home.

Cecelia was born August 28, 1926. She grew up in Chippewa Falls, WI, with her parents and 13 siblings, who all preceded her in death.

Cecelia married Morris Johnson in 1945 in Superior, WI, where they raised their two daughters and remained until Morris died in 2006. Cecelia moved to Frederic in 2006 to be closer to family.

Cecelia loved this time of year and seeing all the Christmas lights. She worked all year on hats and scarves for the tree at Bremer Bank, Barbie and Ken doll clothes for Operation Christmas, and lap afghans for the Frederic Nursing home residents. She also enjoyed baking cookies, breads, and making candies to give to family and friends at Christmas.

Cecelia is preceded in death by her husband in 2006 and one of her best friends, son-in-law, John J. Hickey in 2009.

Cecelia is survived by daughters, Sandy Hickey and Linda (Dick) Franke; six grandchildren, Denise (Steven) Berger, Rita (Mark) Bohn, Sean Hickey, Taunya (Kelly) Landry, Stacie Donnick, Todd (Jay) Donnick; nine great-grandchildren, Jackie (AJ) Peterson, Amy (Ken Spain) Funk, Ashley Hickey, Tristan Hickey, Jacinda Hickey, Noah Berger, Samantha Landry, Shane Landry, Melinda Schulz; one great-great-granddaughter, Ayla Rain Peterson, who won’t play Patty Cake with anyone but her ‘3Gma’.

A celebration of Morris and Cecelia’s life is being planned for July, 2013.
