KRISTJAN THEODORE JOHNSON (published on February 27, 2010)

KRISTJAN THEODORE JOHNSON 1917 - 2010 Peacefully, with his family by his side, on the morning of February 25, 2010, Kristjan Johnson of Arborg Manitoba passed away at the Arborg District Hospital at the age of 92 years. Kristjan was predeceased by his parents, Snaebjörn and Sigridur; and his brother Snorri. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Kristin, his son Keith (Joanne); his daughter Esther (Brian Pallister); his grandchildren, Kara (Daniel Matthews), Quinn, Shawn, Jamie, and Noah; and his great-granddaughter Brooke. He will also be remembered by his brother Kjartan (Valdina); his sister-in-law Gudny and their families. Kristjan was born in Arborg on March 17, 1917. There he pursued his lifelong love of farming. Along with his parents and his brothers, he helped to clear the land, to cultivate, and to develop it into the productive farm that it is today. Kris was a man of integrity and high ideals. He was known for his strength of character and his perseverance. He was a strong and steady worker. He maintained a pace that few could match, especially later in his life. Well into his late 80s, he was still involved in maintenance and repair around the farm and seed plant. During the farm season of his 90th year he actively participated in spring field preparation and during the harvest he was able to do the majority of the swathing on the Johnson farm. For those who witnessed this, it was truly remarkable. As an Afi, his grandchildren brought him great joy. He loved to hear their youthful voices whenever they were around and they always brought a sparkle to his eye. His kind and gentle manner, his caring, and his wisdom will live on. A memorial and celebration of his life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, March 1, 2010 at the Ardal-Geysir Lutheran Church in Arborg. In lieu of flowers, donations in Kristjan's name may be made to the Ardal-Geysir Lutheran Church 301 River Road, Arborg MB, R0C 0A0 NEIL BARDAL INC. (204) 949 2200
