Obituary for Grace Florence Johnson

It was Friday January 30, 1920 in the Rutan farm house near Beaver City, Nebraska when Grace Florence Rutan was born to Arthur H. Rutan and Anna E. Rosenbrock - Rutan.
Grace grew up on the Rutan farm located on the Nebraska/Kansas state line. She would talk about having to herd the cows down the lane that was located on the state line to get them into the pasture. Then there was the spring feed creek that ran by their house where they would keep the milk and cream cans so they would stay cool in the summer time. When harvest time came on the farm all the farmers would get together and help each other. Mom said that the huge steam tractor’s pulling the thrashing machine would made such a loud noise as they rumble up their drive way. Then there were the time’s that it would get so dry that dust would get into everything when wind blew.
On Sunday October 14, 1934 Grace received confession of faith into full membership in the First Presbyterian Church in Beaver City, Nebraska.
In 1946 Grace went to Lincoln General Hospital School of Nursing in Lincoln, Nebraska and on Tuesday October 8, 1946 received her Diploma as a Registered Nurse. Then in 1946 Grace met a young man fell in love and married Myron Johnson on Tuesday November 12, 1946 in Girard, Kansas. Grace was 26 and Myron was 25. They then moved to Bend, Oregon and on Monday night September 20, 1948 Grace gave birth to their son Charles. In 1951 they moved to Newberg, Oregon where Grace loved to work in the garden and flower beds and she also loved to take care of her African Violet plants.
Grace was a homemaker and was always canning fruit and making dill pickles during the summer. She loved to work crossword puzzles.
So this is not the end of the story but the beginning of a new life in Heaven.
Grace is survived by her son Charles and daughter-in-law Donna of Newberg, niece’s Carol, Evelyn, Judy, Renee, Cathy, Gerri, Carole, Linda, Sandi and Melva and families.
