Jeanne P. Johnson, age 75, of Baldwin, WI, formerly of St. Paul, MN, passed away in the early hours of Friday, September 11, 2020 at the Baldwin Care Center.

Jeanne was born February 22, 1945 to parents August & Florence Triemert in St. Paul, MN. She spent her childhood there alongside her four siblings, Joan, Jim, Jerry, & Jackie. After high school, Jeanne went on to work in manufacturing, primarily in plastics packaging. She was always known for her hard work & dedication to not only her career, but any job or task she was faced with. Though her loyalty to her work could never be questioned, it was Jeanne’s devotion to her friends & family that really shined. Jeanne had a deeply generous spirit & could be counted on for just about anything by anyone. She was never shy to host a great feast for friends, family, & neighbors. Anyone who had the pleasure of sharing a meal in Jeanne’s home would agree that she was the best cook around. She also loved to have company over to play games. Jeanne was fond of many, including bingo, Scrabble, dominos, dice, cards, & any other game that was brought to the table. On special occasions, she liked to take trips to the casino to play the many games offered there. After receiving a smart tablet, the amount of games available to Jeanne became endless, but she really liked the paint by numbers games most recently. Jeanne’s big heart & giving nature will be deeply missed by all who were blessed to know her.

Jeanne will remain in the hearts of her sons, David (Mary) Triemert of Baldwin, WI, Rick (Amy) Johnson of Blaine, MN, & Jeff (Melinda Anderson) Johnson of Lakeville, MN; step-children, Tom Johnson & Deb Rempfer; grandchildren, Shannon (Tommy) Gilkerson, Becky (Nick) Thoennes, Mitchell, Marisa, Brendon, & Calista Johnson, & Brooke Rempfer; great-grandchildren, Avery & Harvey Gilkerson, & Mercedes & Tripp Markfort; siblings, Joan Birchem, Jim Triemert, & Jackie (Joe) Whalen; sister-in-law, Jill Triemert; good friend & daily companion, Virgil Rhone; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family & friends. She is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Richard; parents, August & Florence Triemert; grandchildren, Corey Triemert & Morgan Rempfer; great-grandchildren, Cash & Hadley Gilkerson, brother, Jerry Triemert; & brother-in-law, Donnie Birchem.
