Carol E. Johnson, 83, of Ironwood passed away on February 20, 2020, at her home in Ironwood.

She was born on January 17, 1937, in Ironwood, daughter of Axel and Laura (Foss) Jacobson. She attended Central Grade School and graduated from Luther L. Wright High School in 1954.

On June 2, 1956, Carol was married to Richard “Dick” Johnson at Grace Lutheran Church in Ironwood by the late Rev. John Kendall. Dick preceded her in death in 2006.

She was employed by Cohodas Paoli Warehouse after high school and continued working there until they closed the office. In 1981 her husband started Johnson Carpet Dry Cleaning, and she did the bookkeeping for that business until they retired in 2004.

Carol was a member of Salem Lutheran Evangelical Church in Ironwood and belonged to the women’s group. She was a girl scout leader at Central School for several years and enjoyed reading, knitting, cooking, doing crossword puzzles and watching trivia game shows. Her other favorite pastime was keeping in touch with all her loved ones across the country over the phone.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Axel and Laura Jacobson, husband, Dick; grandson, Jeremy in 2007; and brothers, Donald and Robert Jacobson.

Carol is survived by a son, Mark (Debbie) Johnson of Horseheads, New York; daughter, Linda (Gary) Wittbrodt of Traverse City; grandsons, Matthew of Atlanta, Georgia, and Benjamin of Charlotte, North Carolina; sister, Nancy Hill of Ironwood; sisters-in-law; and nieces and nephews to include her special nephew and godchild, David (Cookie) Hill and their daughters, Leighton and Talia.

A memorial service will be held in the spring at Salem Lutheran Church in Ironwood.

Carol’s ashes will be spread at the same location as Dick’s in the spring.

Memorial contributions can be made to Hope Animal Shelter, P. O. Box 261, Ironwood, MI 49938 or at

The family has chosen McKevitt-Patrick Funeral Home, Ironwood, to honor Carol’s legacy of life. You can leave a condolence or a tribute at

We were saddened to hear of Carol's passing. Myself and my brother Adam will always remember her and all the time we spent at her table at church coffee, and we will also always remember visiting her when we were home visiting our own family. We are thinking of you all. Bert Beals, Adam Beals, and family

We are having her memorial on Friday June 12 in the morning at the funeral home and it will be livestreamed. Email me at if you would like the connection information. Best to you and your family - Linda Wittbrodt (Carol's daughter)
