Margaret A. "Maggie" Johnson, age 80, of Janesville, died on Sunday, November 25, 2012 at Cedar Crest Health Care Center. She was born in the Township of Dane, Dane County, WI on September 21, 1932, the daughter of the late Norbert and Marie (Kaul) Munz. Maggie graduated from Lodi High School. On November 18, 1972 she married Robert O. Johnson. Maggie moved from Racine, WI to Janesville in 1972 and she was a member of St. Patrick Catholic Church. Maggie and her husband were both very active with the Janesville VFW Post #1921, where she has served as past president of the Women's Auxiliary.

A strong person of faith, Maggie raised her children with traditional family values which they all practice and cherish to this day. Even though she could be stern and strict at times, she always supported their activities, she always had a sense of humor and she could always make them laugh. Maggie enjoyed babysitting for her grandchildren and other children in the neighborhood, while at the same time she would be making baked goods for all of them. She was a wonderful and perfect mother.

She is survived by her children: David (Yvonne) Christian of Racine, WI, Jack (Kathy) Christian of Janesville, WI, Carl (Brenda) Christian of Racine, WI, Jerome Johnson of Janesville, WI, RoseMarie (Rick) Farnsworth of Milton, WI, Richard (Becky) Johnson of Beloit, WI, and Scott Johnson of Columbus, GA; 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. She is further survived by her sister: Cleo Hoffman, and three brothers: Louie Munz, David (Kathy) Munz and Bob Munz and three step-sons: Richard, Daniel and David Johnson. In addition to her husband and parents, she was predeceased by an infant son: Allen; two sisters and three brothers.
