Jennie Lee Johnson
September 25, 1931 - March 12, 2020

Place of Birth: Sidney, Montana
Residence: Sidney, Montana
Age: 88

Jennie Lee Johnson passed away peacefully at Sidney Health Center on Thursday, March 12, 2020, at the age of 88. Jennie Lee was born in Sidney, MT, to Herbert and Della (Howard) Lightner on September 25, 1931. She was the youngest of ten children. She met the love of her life, Dallas Johnson, and they were married on November 14, 1948, on Dallas’ 21st birthday. Their son Lee Michael was born in 1951, and daughter Pamela Jean arrived in 1954.
A lover of collections, Jennie Lee fancied teapots, birdhouses, coffee mugs, books of all kinds (read and remembered), and a menagerie (a collection of wild animals kept in captivity for exhibition) of giraffes. She was an accomplished seamstress, and her sewing machine stitched away day and night. Impossible deadlines for cheerleading uniforms, prom dresses, bridesmaid’s dresses, and alterations were accomplished in her home. Her friends’ and families’ homes were adorned with her crocheting and Norwegian hardanger projects. If you were lucky, you may have been invited to share in her Saturday night caramel rolls! And her driving skills were a force to be wreckened with.
Jennie Lee was a devout Christian, and as a young teenager she dreamed of becoming a missionary. God fulfilled this desire in a unique way. She served as the Missionary President at the Nazarene Church for 25 years. In the Nazarene Church’s 75th year, they sent missionaries to 75 countries. That year she and her friends, Doris DeTienne and Irene Larson, designed and sewed full sized flags for each of these nations. Their hard work was displayed at the Church’s district convention.
Jennie Lee is survived by her daughter Pam Lewis of Minot, ND; daughter-in-law Toots (Dennis) McCollough of Billings, MT; four grandchildren David (Sarah Meyer) Lewis of Minot, ND; Stephen (Jessica) Lewis of Holly Ridge, NC; Michael Johnson of Sidney, MT, and Melissa (Andrew) Shiffer of Sidney, MT; four great grandchildren Abigail, Elizabeth, Calli and Owen, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Jennie Lee is preceded in death by her parents, husband, son Mike, and all her siblings: sisters Nora, Hazel, Mae, Isola "Toadie", Natalie and brothers Charles (Bud), Gale, Oral, and Herbert.

I have only met Jennie Lee a few times, but feel like I have known her for all of my life. Her brother Gale was one of my dad, Allen's best friends. She was a friend to my mom, Jeanette Becker Swihart and my cousin, Linda Becker Kindopp who shared their fond memories of Jennie. Prayers to her family and friends.

Pam, I was very saddened to hear of your Mamas passing. I remember her well from when we were kids in Campfire Girls. Meetings at your house, so much fun. Jennie Lee was such a great hostess. She made sure we all had a good time. I believe I am related in some way...I think her mother was my Aunt??? Or great Aunt?Something like that. Will never forget her. Take care of yourself.

Dear Pam and Toots, and all of Jen's family,
I loved your mom! Her smile and contagious laughter were implanted in my memory from the time I knew her as a child. I've told my kids about eating those wonderful cinnamon rolls around her table! Such good memories! She was truly a friend and blessing to our family. We will dearly miss her. Praying for all of you as you walk this journey of grief together.
Love and prayers,
Valerie (Pemble) Caven and family

Our family first met the Johnson's in 1662. As pastors of the Sidney Nazarene Church for a number of years, we had the opportunity to work with her and share in her passion for world Missions. We to enjoyed those cinnamon rolls and were recipients of her sewing skills. It was such a pleasure to have a phone visit with her just a few days before her passing. She expressed her thanks to the Lord for her pastor, family and friends for their care and encouragement. She testified of her faith and joy in the Lord and was waiting for Him to come and take her to be with Him. We offer our our sympathy to Family and friends. Love and prayers. Sincerely, The Al Pemble Family

Beloved Mom, Aunt, Grandmother & Great Grandma
