Mary Johnson, 72 passed way on April 3rd, 2020 in Lakewood, CO. Mary was born on May 23rd, 1947 in Wilmar, MN. She is preceded in death by her parents John and Shirley Berglund. Mary leaves behind two children and their spouses, Nathan and Jill Johnson and Angela and Chad Bingham. She was blessed with five grandchildren; Sierra, Parker, and Trey Johnson and Cooper and Cohen Bingham. Mary is also survived by her sister and spouse Shelley and Charles Overturf.
Mary has always had a passion for working with children and was a teacher in her earlier years. After moving to Colorado in the late 1980’s Mary started doing accounting work. In 2008 Mary suffered multiple brain aneurisms, which later lead to a diagnosis of cranial vasculitis. As a result of this and many more medical conditions that arose she was no longer able to work or live on her own. Mary showed extreme strength and fought very hard to overcome so many challenges. Mary was much stronger than she ever knew.
Mary loved her grandchildren more than anything. Her apartment was always filled with keepsakes and pictures she received from them over the years. She was known for making personalized gifts for almost everyone she knew. Friends often became family to Mary and because of that she had a huge extended family. Mary will truly be missed by so many, however we all find comfort in knowing she is happy, pain free, and in heaven watching over us all.
Due to the current situation involving the COVID-19 pandemic, memorial services will be postponed until the summer of 2020.
