Marjorie was born on May 4, 1936 to William and Mildred (McPeck) Mouden in Geneva, Nebraska. Her family lived in Seward and York when she was young, and moved to Osceola, Nebraska where she began 3rd grade. She graduated from Osceola High School in 1954.
Marjorie was united in marriage to Robert Lee Johansen at the Osceola United Methodist Church on December 5, 1954. God blessed them with three children, Tamra, Terri, and Robert. Over their 65 years together, they lived in Columbus, Nebraska, as well as Ohio and Pennsylvania, but the majority of their life was spent in Osceola.
Marjorie worked in various offices through the years, but her most cherished time was spent at home with her own children, and later, Grandma Margie’s home daycare, for 15 years. She belonged to the Osceola United Methodist Church and Christian Women’s group, sang in the church choir, and served on several committees. She also belonged to the Friendly Neighbors Club for many years. Marjorie especially enjoyed family gatherings, potluck dinners, baking cookies, caring for her flowers, and visiting with friends. Her greatest joy was being with Bob and their family.
Survivors include her husband, Bob Johansen, of Osceola; daughters, Tammy (Mark) Jones of Osceola, and Terri Johansen of Elko, Nevada; son Rob (Pam) Johansen of Utica; 9 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren, and a host of other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents and an infant brother.
