TERESA ANN JOHNSON
Teresa Ann Johnson, 52, of Hermantown, passed away peacefully in Essentia Health St. Mary's Medical Center surrounded by her family after a long battle with pulmonary veno-occlusive disease on June 28, 2012.
Teresa was born in Eveleth May 20, 1960, to Louis and Sally Muhich. She graduated from Eveleth High School in 1978 and went on to earn her bachelor's degree in botany from North Dakota University and later earned her doctorate in pharmacy, at the age of 50, from the University of Minnesota.
Teresa married her high school sweetheart, Kurt Johnson, Aug. 29, 1981. After finishing their college degrees, Kurt and Teresa moved to the Duluth area, raising identical twin girls, Heather and Michelle. In Duluth Teresa worked as a pharmacy technician for many years at St. Mary's hospital prior to returning to school to earn her doctorate in pharmacy in 2010.
Teresa enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening, making maple syrup, harvesting wild rice and all activities outdoors. To all who knew her, Teresa was a caring, loving, compassionate individual who always put others before herself. She remained positive no matter what obstacle she faced. She was an inspiration.
Teresa is survived by her husband, Kurt Johnson; daughters Heather (Kyle) Heffner and Michelle (Andrew) Hadrich; parents Louis and Sally Muhich; brothers and sisters, Fr. Peter Muhich, John (Jean) Muhich, Paul (Shari) Muhich, Tom (Brandy) Muhich, Mary (Dave) Kujala, and Jim (Sarah) Muhich; as well as numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews and extended family.
Many Thanks to Mayo Clinic in Rochester and St. Mary's hospice team for their wonderful care of Teresa.
