Gail Elizabeth Johnson (Wallen)

May 8, 1950 — October 6, 2021

Gail E. Johnson, 71, Wausau, beloved wife, mother, sister, aunt, and grandmother, and
great-grandmother, with family by her side, was welcomed into the loving arms of our heavenly
Father on Wednesday, Oct. 6, 2021, at Aspirus Hospital, Wausau.

She was born May 8, 1950, in Robbinsdale, MN, the daughter of the late John and Virginia
(Forbes) Wallen. She married Larry Johnson on June 29, 1975, in Puposky, MN. He survives.
Gail spent her early years in Northern Minnesota until she met Larry. They moved to Wisconsin
where they raised their five children. She enjoyed volunteering every summer for 20 years at
church camp. She enjoyed the outdoors, fishing, camping, traveling, and gardening. She had a
strong faith in Jesus and her greatest joys in life were her husband, kids, and grandbabies. One
thing she always said was, “No matter where you go in life, you are always welcome home.”
She was always ready to greet anyone with a great, big hug.

Gail is survived by her five children: Cindy (Rick) Kalbes - Manitowoc, Waylon (Kelli Trudeau)
