Karen F. Johnson

Karen F. Johnson
January 22, 1939 -  September 14, 2021

Karen Faye (Ellerman) Johnson of Fremont, Nebraska passed away on September 14, 2021, at the age of 82.

Karen was born on January 22, 1939, in Snyder, Nebraska to Donald and Opal (Luedke) Ellerman. She along with her family eventually moved to Fremont where she spent the remainder of her life. She married Roland (Bud) Johnson on January 22, 1956, after which they had and raised three children. Karen was known as one who wasn’t afraid to talk to and ask questions of people. Her inquisitive mind led her to studying the Bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses to find the answers she hadn’t found in her church growing up. With help, she found those answers and was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses which she remained up until her death.

Karen was preceded in death by her husband, Roland and one brother, David Ellerman as well as a son-in-law, Al McLaren.

She is survived by her three children, Sheryl Johnson, Lori McLaren and Jonathan (Valery) Johnson as well as two brothers, Jeff Ellerman and Larry (Song) Ellerman.

Through Karen’s study of the Bible, she found comfort and hope that all the suffering and pain that mankind experiences will soon be undone (Rev. 21:3,4) Karen was loved by her family and friends and will be missed but they find comfort and hope in the Bible’s promise of a resurrection (John 5:28,29) and that soon they will see her again in a world that is new (Ps. 37:29).
