Mrs. Winifred E. Johnson

Sunrise: August 5, 1937 – Sunset: January 9, 2022

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot - Ecclesiastes 3:1-2

With profound sadness, grief, and bewilderment that the Johnson, Smith, Browne, Logan and DavisLogan Families announce the death of our mother, grandmother, sister, aunty, cousin, and friend, Mrs. Winifred E. Johnson. She was called home from labor to rest on Sunday, January 9, 2022 at 8:30am at her home in New Hope, MN (USA).

She leaves to mourn her siblings - Martina Smith, Anna Johnson Baker, Pinkey Johnson. Children - Philipbert S. Browne, Sr., Jah H. Johnson, Abner G. Johnson, Wede R. Johnson, and Wedeo R. Johnson. Stepchildren - Gertrude R. Logan, Alice Davies and Emmanuel Logan. She is survived by a host of nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great grandchildren and a host of family and friends. We pray that she finds rest in the eternal peace of God and that her memories will always bind us together as a family. We will miss her dearly.
