Johnson, Terry Lynn


Loving mother, grandmother, and friend, Terry was “Mama Johnson” to many because of her exceptionally loving and kind spirit. Terry graduated Summa Cum Laude from Saint Olaf College, received her Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Mankato State University, and attended the Center for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Michigan, where she completed all of her coursework towards her doctorate. Terry had a 30+ year career at Honeywell, where she was a well-regarded friend, colleague, mentor, and leader. She loved storytelling, dancing, traveling, and a good laugh. Terry embodied her deeply held faith by loving her neighbors and being an active community member working for social justice. She is preceded in death by Bryant Merrill, her great love of more than 37 years, her sisters Sally Leese and Dorothy Swanson and her parents Douglas and Margaret Weed. She is survived by her children Sarah Larson (Ryan Holker), Laura Johnson, Bryant Johnson, and her grandchildren Gwyneth, Aiden, Brooke, Kilian, Hally, and Davis, as well as many relatives and friends. A service honoring her life will be held at 1:00 PM with visitation beginning at 11:30 on Friday, April 29th at The Highlands Church in Delano.
