Lebanon, N.H. — Evelyn Ingeborg Johnson, 95, born Nov. 17, 1922, in Forestville, Conn. to Frederick L. Johnson, and Anna Paulina (Bengtson), died peacefully Friday, March 16, 2018, in her home at Harvest Hill in Lebanon, NH.

Evelyn’s career as a missionary worker, youth director and church secretary in the Evangelical Lutheran Church gave her the opportunity to travel and live all across the U.S. Evelyn retired as secretary from Dartmouth College’s Department of African and Afro American Studies. She settled in Sharon, Vt. and spent her retirement years selling breads and jellies with her sister, Anna, at the Randolph Farmer’s Market for over 20 years.

Evelyn’s passions were her faith, her Swedish roots (actually going to Sweden in 1973 to pick up her Volvo), and her grandnieces and nephews. She enjoyed singing alto in the church choir, fellowship times at Camp Calumet, listening to NPR radio, sugaring in the Spring with her brother, Sig, and picking rhubarb to share with friends.

Evelyn was predeceased by her siblings, Martha, Sigvard, Lennart, Anna and Arthur and by her nephew, Armand. She leaves behind beloved nieces and nephews Elaine, Roy, Christine, Louise, Gail, Carl and Lois and their families who were so special to her.

A celebration of Evelyn’s life will be held at Our Savior Lutheran Church, 5 Summer Street, Hanover, N.H. on Friday, April 6 at 1 p.m. Burial will be private in Randolph Center Cemetery at a later date.

Donations of remembrance may be made to Our Savior Lutheran Church, 5 Summer Street, Hanover, NH 03755.

The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff at Harvest Hill and Bayada of Norwich for their compassionate care as she journeyed to her Savior.
