Maureen “Mo” Johnson
Maureen Ann Lee was born March 21, 1929 to a flapper and telephone operator, Freda, and a politically involved railroad man, Maurice, at the perfect time to have a baby when the economy had been steadily doing great. Six months later, the market crashed and the great depression left its lasting impression.
She earned her living as a nurse, insurance salesperson and administrative assistant to a college professor. At her sister's wedding, she met David Johnson of Tupper Lake. They married a year later. She learned to be and do everything: she sewed, knitted, and crocheted her own clothes and those of some of her children. She cooked, played piano, painted, cut everyone's hair and always had an art or craft project going. She embraced all the opportunities Tupper Lake offered but especially loved water and snow skiing.
She proudly lived independently with her wits about her until she was a month shy of 89. She leaves behind her former husband, now of Keene Valley, and their three children: Marco (with wife Anne Magnan) in Lander, Wyoming; Susan of Staunton, Virginia; and Paul, his wife Marilyn and their two children, Taylor and Andrew of Seattle, Washington; her nieces and their families Deb VanKerkhove of East Amherst, New York; Pam Leathersich of Rochester, New York, favorite brother-in-law, Tony and his wife Beth of Virginia; nephew Greg Johnson of Alabama; nieces and their families Sarah Brown of North Carolina; Amy Garcia of Virginia; Kate Johnson of Virginia; and Laura Johnson of Cologne, Germany. She also leaves behind friends from Kennesaw State University. She was thrilled to live near her grandchildren and was well taken care of by Paul and Marilyn.
