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.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
