Clarice L. Johnson

LODI-Clarice L. Johnson, age 100, passed away on Saturday, December 2, 2017 at UW Hospital.

She was born on October 4, 1917 the daughter of the late John and Elizabeth (Reppen) Johnson in Dane Wis.

Clarice was a graduate of Madison Business College. She worked for over 40 years at the University Hospital in the business office, which led to her love of the Badger Football Team.

Clarice lived most of her life in Madison returning on weekends to the family farm. After her retirement, she volunteered at the Bethel Parish Shop and found great pleasure with the friends she met there. She eventually moved back to the farm where she was born and over the years cared for her sister and nephew.

Clarice loved to travel, and was an avid reader. Clarice was the one to ask regarding family information both past and present.

She will be greatly missed for her wit and sharp mind by those who knew her. Clarice is survived by her older brother, Kenneth (Eleanor) Johnson; sister-in-law, Mary Johnson and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her brothers, James and Raymond; sisters, Anna, Myrtle (Ed) Quam (Joe Kautz), Angie (Earlin) Loff, Leila (John) Brownrigg, and Betty (William) Carncross.

As per Clarice’s wishes a private memorial service will be held for family at the historic Arlington Prairie Church.

The family wishes to thank the Lodi Good Samaritan Society for the love and care shown to Clarice over the past 5 months and the UW Hospital Palliative Care staff for their excellent care of Clarice and support of her family.
