Marcella Rose Johnson, 83, of Plankinton, SD passed away Tuesday, May 26, 2020 at her home. Private family Graveside Services will take place at Mizpah Cemetery in Plankinton.

Marcella Rose (Larson) Johnson was born on September 14, 1936 to Warren Ole and Rosalia (Grambihler) Larson on the family farm in Aurora County, 10 miles north of Plankinton, SD. She attended Aurora County Country Grade School, a year of Catholic School in Woonsocket, graduated from Plankinton High School in 1954 and then went on to the National School of Business in Rapid City, SD.

On November 11, 1955 Marcella was united in marriage to Darrel Edward Johnson at St. John’s Catholic Church in Plankinton. They started their life together in Texas, relocated to Chamberlain, SD and were blessed with four children. They then moved to Plankinton to help her father farm and eventually purchased their own farm from Otto Miller where they raised their family and lived until retirement. Marcella liked working with numbers and was employed as a Bookkeeper 12 years for the Fraser Cement Plant and 12 years for the Roadhouse Pub Cafe.

Marcella’s creative side could be seen in her sewing and award winning paintings and drawings. She loved horseback riding and racing, as well as Square Dancing. She enjoyed gardening, yard work and researching family history through Genealogy as a member of the Aurora County Historical Society. Easter was Marcella’s favorite holiday because that’s when all the kids were home.

Grateful for having shared in Marcella’s life: her four children: Susan (John) DeVaney of Plankinton, SD, Tony (Londa) Johnson of Aurora, SD, Sheldon (Shawn) Johnson of Winters, TX and Lance (Mary) Johnson of Plankinton, SD; 14 grandchildren: Anna Klein, Neil Klein, Melissa Coull, Tina Star, Joshua Johnson, Cody Johnson, Luke Johnson, Brenna Thompson, Danny Whipple, Aly Crook, Jayme Whipple, Alan Birmeier, Katrina Birmeier and Raelee Blury; 14 great grandchildren: Megan, Isaac, Stephanie, Josephine, Orion, Flora, Gage, Trael, Tanner, Tyler, Miranda, Katherine, Talon and Liam; a sister, Lenora (Dale) Hoffman and two brothers: Dan (Carylin) Larson and Tim (Ruth) Larson all of Plankinton, SD; a brother-in-law, LaVerne (Maryanne) Johnson of Rapid City, SD; a sister-in-law: Julie Wulf of Scotland, SD; along with many nieces and nephews.

Marcella was preceded in death by her husband, Darrel Johnson (Feb. 16, 2017); her parents, Warren and Rose Larson; a sister, Doris Briggs; a brother, David Larson; parents-in-law, Charles and Mayme Johnson; two sisters-in-law: Georgia Grambihler and Muriel Gilberts; a brother-in-law, Marvin Johnson; and an infant grandson, Jeremiah Johnson.
