Bertha “Bertie” Johnson, 89, of Campbellsport, passed away peacefully at her home on Thursday, September 19, 2019.
She was born on November 6, 1929, the daughter of Anton and Pauline Olbrys. On April 29, 1950, Bertie married George W. Johnson and from that day forward they dairy farmed and raised their family in the Town of Ashford.
Bertie worked hard with George farming; making many meals for the hired farm help. She lived for her family, making sure that everyone was ok. She was most proud of her family and making sure that George and her legacy will live on for many generations with the life they built together. Bertie enjoyed her weekly phone calls with Ann, Helen and Gloria and loved sitting on her front porch reminiscing about the good old days.
