Obituary for Mark C. Johnson
Mark C. Johnson, 72, of Cushing, WI, died Thursday, October 15, 2015 at his home after a 15-month battle with cancer.

Mark was born to Herman and Ruth Johnson September 12, 1943. The family already included five brothers, Virgil, Lyle, DeMiles, Roger and Glenn. Six weeks later his mother died. An agreement was made with Leander and Pearl Peterson of Cushing to care for Mark, and he grew up as their son along with their daughter, Joan. He continued to have two families to add blessings to his life.

He graduated from St. Croix Falls High School in 1962. He worked at Hunky Dory Resort, on the Hermstad farm, and over 35 years at UFE in Dresser. June 24, 1967 was the wedding date for him and Vickie Asper of Frederic. They lived in Milltown until 1970 when they moved to the Peterson family farm west of Cushing where he farmed and raised beef cattle. Three wonderful children, Karin, Jennifer and Bruce made the family complete.

He enjoyed being part of the Chippewa Riders Saddle Club, raising horses, and in later years activities involving workhorses. Square dancing with the Friendly Twirlers was enjoyed for many years.

Community involvement included the church council at First Lutheran, Brenholt Park, Cushing Cemetery, SELHS, and the Luck Museum.

He leaves his love, interests, and examples of kindness and gratitude to his wife, Vickie; children, Karin Johnson, Jennifer Mishler (Les) and Bruce Johnson. Precious grandchildren are Curtis Mishler, Chloe Tomesh, Dean Johnson, Erika Johnson and Caleb Johnson. He is also survived by brother, Glenn (Diania) Johnson; sisters-in-law, Gloria and Marvel; and nieces, nephews and cousins.
