Nancy Lynn (Smith) Johnson, the daughter of Carl and Dorothy (Shadboldt) Smith, was born on October 9, 1947 in Charles City, Iowa. She attended punch key school after graduating from high school which allowed her to work with the Blackhawk Department of Transportation for a few years. Nancy loved working with all of the law enforcement officers.

Nancy was united in marriage to Edwin Joseph “Joe” Johnson on September 14, 1968 at Blessed Sacrament in Waterloo. The couple lived in Plainfield until 1984 where Joe worked at the bank and they farmed together. In 1984, they moved to Elma where they both worked at Peoples Savings Bank. Joe and Nancy built a house in Charles City in 2003, moved into it and enjoyed their retirement in 2005.

Nancy was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Charles City most recently and in Elma when they lived there. She was active in Rosary Society at both locations while they were in existence. Nancy was also a member of Woman’s Club and a Brownie leader both in Plainfield, the Howard County Hospital Board in the 1990’s and she volunteered as a lunch server several times at Immaculate Conception Catholic School for several years and volunteered for many church activities as well.

Nancy enjoyed spending time with her family, shopping, traveling with Joe and their friends, shopping, playing board games with the granddaughters, going on her annual Christmas shopping trip with her sister, golfing, shopping, reading, watching Hallmark movies, Christmas baking, an overall enjoyment of life (Happiness is found along the way not at the end of the road.), daily diet Coke’s and fries from McDonald’s and shopping.

Nancy held a special place in her heart for the holidays with Thanksgiving being her favorite. She would have special ornaments each year at Christmas time and had special “touches” at every holiday. Her family will always remember her broken clock that started working the day she died, margaritas with chips n salsa, “Snap Chatting”, and the enjoyment of Peppermint Rum Chata.

Living family members include her husband, Joe Johnson of Charles City; children: Christina (Rob) Robinson of Pardeeville, Wisconsin, Laurie (Jay) Field of Charles City and Daniel (Renee) Johnson of Edwardsville, Illinois; grandchildren: Allyson Effle, Kylie Effle, Shelby Effle, Elizabeth Robinson, Gracie Johnson and Hope Johnson; sister, Norma (Vagn) Pedersen of Cedar Falls; nephews and niece: Brian (Dawn) Pedersen, Kurt (Jessica) Pedersen and Connie (Mike) Meeker; along with many great-nieces, great-nephews, other family members and friends.

Nancy was preceded in death by her parents; granddaughter: Sophia Johnson; son-in-law, Bryan Effle; father and mother-in-law, Edwin and Florence Johnson; brother-in-law, Michael Johnson; and sister-in-law, Mary Meyers.
