Obituary of Sharalyn Elizabeth Johnson

 

Sharalyn Elizabeth Johnson, 81, of Mound, MN, died May 19, 2022 of brain cancer in Shakopee with family at her bedside.

She was born 7/10/1940 in Minneapolis to Frank and Belle Habeck.

Preceded in death by her parents, siblings Lloyd (Blanche), Hazel Stodola (Don), Beverly Clark (Ed) Edmond (Don), nephews Terry Clark and Don Stodola Jr., sister-in-law Patricia Johnson and special friend Jude Miller.

Survived by her husband of almost 50 years, Wayne R. Johnson, daughter Kimberly Waller (Tom), son William Cameron (Sue), grandchildren Rhea, Marc, Kirsten, Erin and Kelly, great grandchildren Wyatt and Ryder, brother-in-law’s Roger and Gary (Merry), nieces, nephews, cousins and many marvelously quirky friends.

She attended Hopkins grade school and middle school. She graduated from Minnetonka High School.

She moved many times, embracing each new location – in MN, WI, IL, ID – before settling into a 102 year old house in Mound in 1992.

She filled that house with items she loved and that represented her wide array of interests.

She loved travel, especially her trips to Europe.

These lyrics from the TV series Outlander, one of her favorite shows, epecially resonated with her.

Sing me a song of a lass that is gone

Say, could that lass be I?

Merry of soul she sailed on a day

Over the sea to Skye

Billow and breeze, islands and seas

Mountains of rain and sun

All that was good, all that was fair

All that was me is gone

Sing me a song of a lass that is gone

Say, could that lass be I?

Merry of soul she sailed on a day

Over the sea to Skye

 

Her family wishes to extend a special thank you to the staff at St. Francis Hospital. They made a difficult time easier. 

Memorial service will be held this fall. Private interment will be at Ft. Snelling National Cemetery.
