Grace L. Johnson

August 2, 1931 — January 17, 2023

Grace Johnson, 91, of Osnabrock, ND, passed away January 17, 2023, at Maple Manor Care Center in Langdon, ND.

Grace Lorraine Dammen was born August 2, 1931, to Alfred and Blenda (Haraseth) Dammen. She grew up and attended school in the Osnabrock area, graduating from Osnabrock High School in 1950. She worked in Langdon, California, and in Osnabrock before getting married to Harland Johnson on October 30, 1954.  They made their home and raised their children in Osnabrock. After retiring, they were able to spend 20 winters in Bullhead City, AZ. In September of 2015, Harland and Grace moved to assisted living in Greenbush to be closer to family following Harland’s stroke. Harland passed away in 2020. Grace moved to Osnabrock Community Living Center about two years ago and was able to be ‘back home’ for her final years.

Grace loved to play cards and shake dice. She and Harland enjoyed music and dancing. They also taught all their grandkids how to drive. She was very involved in the school and her children’s activities as they grew up. She enjoyed following all her grandchildren and the activities they were involved in. She was a member of Dovre Lutheran Church in Osnabrock.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Harland, brother Marvin Dammen, and son-in-law Dean Fuglem.
