Anna Karolina (Thomsen) Johnsen
Anna Karolina (Thomsen) Johnsen, age 99, passed away on Friday, October 18th at Zinzendorf Hall in Watertown, WI. She was born in Askov, Minnesota, on September 16, 1914, to Jens and Johanne (Christensen) Thomsen. On January 7, 1934, she married Werner Johnsen. He preceded her in death on January 22, 1986. She was additionally preceded in death by her parents, three sisters, and two brothers. She was the last surviving member of her family.
She is survived by three daughters: Shirley Korth of Waterford, WI; Myra (Bill) Ahern of Madison; and Karla (Bill) Mullen of Watertown; twelve grandchildren: Jeff (Gail) Korth, Eve (Carl) Degen, Michael (Kimberly) Korth, Kurt (Kendra) Korth, Amy (Mark) Juric, Peggy (Jim) Steele, Mary Ahern, Kathy (Terry) Simcox, Chris (Pamela Villacorta) Ahern, Tiffany (David Faber) Mullen, William (Stephanie Lauenstein) Mullen, and Drew (Michelle) Mullen. She is also survived by 25 great-grandchildren, many adoring nieces and nephews, and a special friend of the family, Adele Pavis.
She taught us through her example to age with grace, courage, and amiability; to love and appreciate the beauty of the natural world; to hold a healthy skepticism toward the self-righteous and self-important; and to cherish all things Danish. Her talents were limitless. Her cardinal virtues were kindness and thoughtfulness and she seldom met a stranger.
A memorial will be held at Hafemeister Funeral Home in Watertown on Saturday, October 26th at 11:00 a.m. Friends of the family may call to pay their respects from 10:00 a.m. until the time of the service. In lieu of flowers, memorials in her honor are suggested to Marquardt Foundation or to the charity of one’s choice. Online condolences may be made at www.hafemeisterfh.com. Interment will be at Bethlehem Lutheran Cemetery in Askov, Minnesota.
The family wishes to thank the extraordinary staff of Zinzendorf Hall and Marquardt Hospice for their kind and loving care.
