Carol Ann was born April 20, 1939, at home in rural Bessemer, Michigan, to Oscar and Anna (Johnson) Gustafson. She was raised near Bessemer and graduated from A.D. Johnston High School in Bessemer in 1957.

Carol moved to Omaha and studied nursing and biblical studies at Grace College of the Bible. She began a career in nursing at St. Joseph's Hospital in Omaha and continued as a nurse upon her relocation to Sacramento, California.

In 1966, Carol became the proud mother of Carla LeAnn. Carol and Carla returned to Bessemer, while Carol cared for her parents before moving back to Omaha in 1975, where Carol was a nurse at the University Medical Center.

On Sept. 30, 1978, Carol was united in marriage to Carl Leonard Johnson at a lakeside wedding in Bergland, Michigan. The family made their home in Ironwood. Carl passed away in 2003, and in 2013 Carol moved to Nebraska to be near her daughter and resided at Rose Lane Home in Loup City until her passing.

Carol's passions were church and music. Her time was spent in various church capacities and playing the piano, organ, trumpet and singing for all kinds of events. She was an accomplished poet and also enjoyed puzzles and her bright flower gardens.

As a woman of the word of God, and a prayer warrior, Carol will also be remembered by her beautiful smile.

Left to cherish her memory is her daughter and son-in-law, Carla LeAnn and Ray Berry of Arcadia; three grandchildren, Anna and Xavier Mathis, Matthew Berry and Timothy Berry; a sister, Lorraine Booth; and an abundance of nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Carl; three brothers and three sisters.
