(Friday - January 15, 2021) - Pearl Mildred Johnson, age 90, of Foster City, passed away on Tuesday, January 12, at her home.

Pearl was born January 29, 1930, in Rio Creek, Wisconsin, daughter of the late Mose and Elsie (Flavian) Fayas. She married Rasmus "Ras" Johnson on June 14, 1947 at Mission Covenant Church in Foster City. He preceded her in death in 2015 after 67 years of marriage. Pearl was a longtime member of the Mission Covenant Church where she served as Sunday School Treasurer and was a member of the Ladies Aide. She enjoyed gardening and watching the deer and birds, and she was an excellent cook who made the best meatloaf, ever. More importantly, Pearl was a great listener and a kind, gentle person who never said a bad word about anyone. With Jesus as her guide, she humbly, and often with humor, showed what it means to live a beautiful life. "A bushel and a peck, and a hug around the neck Grandma!"

She is survived by six children: Larry (Joann) Johnson of Iron Mountain, Linda Johnson of Suring, Wisconsin, Rodney Johnson (Jaycee) of Iron Mountain, Kathy (Terry) Murray of Foster City, Scott Johnson of Foster City and Curtis Johnson of Iron Mountain; a daughter-in-law, Linda Johnson of Loretto; a brother, Ronnie (Rose) Fayas of DePere; a sister, Audrey Roy of Foster City; 11 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren.

Along with her husband, Ras, Pearl was preceded in death by a son, Mark Johnson; a daughter-in-law, Joann Johnson; two brothers, Mose Fayas Jr. and Eldred (Lorraine) Fayas; two sisters, Blanche (Emil) Johnson and Gladys (Herbert) Johnson; and a brother-in-law, David Roy.

Private family graveside services will be held in the spring at the Foster City Cemetery. The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to OSF Hospice, especially Heather, for her compassionate care.
