Marilyn Johnson Obituary

Marilyn (Lyn) Johnson, 92, passed away peacefully, April 9, 2023 at Door County Medical Center, Sturgeon Bay.  She was preceded in death by her parents and husband Charles. 

Lyn was born December 17, 1930 in Peoria, Illinois, the daughter of the late Clarence and Vera Gray.  She graduated from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in English.  She studied at Vandercook College of Music in Chicago to develop her singing ability.  Later in life, Marilyn received a Master of Arts Degree in Library and Information Studies from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.  In 1996, Lyn and her husband Chuck retired full time to Sister Bay in a home designed by Chuck which began with an existing log house built in 1840.  They celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in April of 2017.
