Johnson, Mary Ellen We are grateful for and celebrate the life of Mary Ellen Rockwell Lorette Johnson. She passed peacefully on Oct. 13th, 2020, with her very dear husband, Steve Johnson, by her side. She loved books and writing; enjoyed traveling with Steve; had a rich spiritual life; was loving, kind, and a wonderful listener; and accepted everyone without judgment. She loved and was loved by an extended family including daughters Sue Lorette and Chris Lorette David, her sister Louann Lindbeck, their spouses, 8 grandkids and their partners, 2 great granddaughters, and all of Steve's gang. She is reunited with her beloved son Billy, who passed in 2015. She will be greatly missed but we hold her in our hearts. "She whom we love is no longer where she was before. She is now wherever we are." Any communication can be sent to
