Mona Rose Johnson, 57, Fargo, ND, passed away on Thursday, January 30, 2014 at Essentia Health in Fargo.

Mona was born on May 4, 1956 in Moorhead, MN to Ronald L. and Theresa (Rheault) Thorson. She was raised in Fargo, attended Nativity School, and in 1974 she graduated from South High School. Mona was united in marriage to Michael G. Johnson on April 19, 1975 at Nativity Catholic Church and they made their home in Fargo.

Mona began her employment at Dakota Clinic Pharmacy in 1974 and enjoyed her work there for 39 years.

Mona was the rock of the family, keeping everything organized, making lists, and getting things crossed off right away. She was everyone’s best friend, always thinking of other people, and ensuring everybody was included. Her kind, caring, and helpful nature will be greatly missed.

Mona loved spending time with her husband and sons, especially over a cup of coffee at the lakes. She and Mike bought a lake home in 1979 and then built a new one two years ago, where they enjoyed the last summer and fall together during her illness.

She is survived by her husband of 38 years, Mike; her sons, Ian (Anne Denham) Johnson and Lane Johnson; her brothers, Nickolas (Susan) Thorson and Randy (Julie) Thorson; and her sister, Yvonne (Joel) Christoferson, Litchville, ND.

She was preceded in death by her parents; and nephew, Ryan Thorson.

There will be a prayer service at Boulger Funeral Home at 7:00 p.m. Monday with visitation from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. The funeral will be at St. John Lutheran Church at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday with visitation in the church from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. Interment will be at Holy Cross South Cemetery, Fargo.

Arrangements entrusted to the care of Boulger Funeral Home and Celebration of Life Center, Fargo. To sign the online guestbook, please visit www.boulgerfuneralhome.com.
