Lorayne Jennie Johnson, age 76 of Lakeland, MN, died peacefully at home surrounded by her family on August 1st, 2017. She was born the daughter of Ward and Laurilee (Hullar) Martin in Hastings, MN on August 22nd, 1940. Lorayne was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was united in marriage on October 15th, 1960 to James K Johnson in Hastings, MN.
Jim and Lorayne had 47 wonderful years together and enjoyed spending the colder months traveling in their RV staying warm and playing golf. After Jim’s passing, she found a nice stationary home in Florida to call home during the cold winter months in Minnesota. If it wasn’t at least 80 degree’s out, Lorayne was cold, so she really enjoyed spending her winters in Florida where she had many wonderful friends to spend her time with. She loved Coffee, Reading, Golf, Baking, Sewing, Flowers, being warm, Facebook, playing cards and cheering for her granddaughter’s hockey team at UW Stevens Point, and Coffee!
