Frances Carolyn (Gueldner) Johnson was born May 15, 1930, in Mondovi,
Wisconsin to Lulu May Gueldner and William Franklin Gueldner.

Her childhood was spent in Eleva, Wisconsin with her brothers, Leonard
Hanson and Bernard Gueldner, (Allen Spencer Gueldner died at age 6
before Frances was born, all are now deceased). She graduated from Eleva
High School in 1948, and married the love of her life, Laverne Everett
Johnson, on June 17, 1950 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. They lived in
Wisconsin and in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, but most of their years
were in California. They lived in Lake Havasu City from 1997 until her
Vern passed in 2020. She lived in Henderson, Nevada for the last two
years. Frances was a lifelong member of the Lutheran Church, Missouri
Synod. Her greatest joy was that her children are followers of Jesus,
their Savior.

Frances is survived by four of her children - Gary (Ann) Johnson, Steve
(Jill) Johnson, Connie (Ernie) Blackwell, Bryan (Linda) Johnson; 11
grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, and five great-great
grandchildren, her sisters-in-law Nancy Johnson, Joyce Davidson,
