Della M (Nelsen) Johnson

Della M Johnson, 105 , a resident of Maplewood at Mayflower Place in West Yarmouth, MA, passed away on December 30, 2022.   A graveside memorial service will be held in the spring at the Faith Lutheran Cemetery in Hannaford, ND.  Della was born on June 28, 1917, in Luverne, ND to Anton and Frederikka Nelsen, immigrants from Denmark. She was preceded in death by her husband and former Speaker of the House, Ernest N. Johnson, and her two brothers-Ernest and Gordon.  She was a graduate of Dazey high school, where she and Ernest met.  They were married on September 18, 1938 and owned and operated a farm in the Dazey area for over 50 years.  Upon retirement they moved to Mesa, AZ, in 2006 and 30 years later to Cape Cod, where she passed away.

Della was a lifetime home maker, gardener, an excellent cook, and active member of Faith Lutheran, Hannaford.  She is survived by her two children, Mavis (Al)  of South Dennis, MA, and Wayne (Diane) of Goodyear, AZ, four grandchildren and eight grandchildren.  The family suggests that all memorials be designated to the Faith Lutheran Cemetery Fund, or the Faith Lutheran Building Refurbishment Fund.
