Lenore Johnson Obituary

Lenore Janet Johnson, age 89 of Silver Creek Township, passed away Saturday, December 9, 2023. She was born in Silver Creek Township on November 11, 1934, to Melvin and Virginia (ZumBrunnen) Platten.

Lenore graduated in 1951 from Monticello High School. She was a 70 year member of Faith Lutheran Church in Silver Creek Township and was the church’s financial secretary for many years. She was also treasurer of Silver Creek Township for 40 years. Her lifelong involvement in Silver Creek Township formed many relationships and friendships to last a lifetime. She will be missed by so many!

On July 25, 1953, Lenore Platten and Willard Johnson were united in marriage. The two were partners in farming and in life. They farmed in Silver Creek Township for 60 years.

Lenore enjoyed gardening, baking, sewing, quilting, needle working, and she was an avid reader. She especially enjoyed her time with her family and never missed one of her daughter’s events throughout school.

She was one of the most dependable and hardworking people one would meet. She was the true cornerstone of her family and church. She had a backbone of iron with a heart of gold.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Willard Johnson; parents, Melvin and Virginia Platten; grandson, Matthew Steffens; and great-granddaughter, Lily Hanson.

Lenore is survived by her daughters, Laurie (Wayne) Steffens, Robin (Jay) Brisse, Susan (Richard) Chwalek; granddaughters, Amy (Shane) Hanson, Claire Chwalek, Colleen Chwalek; great-grandson, Nolan Hanson; and many other family and friends.
