Evelyn Johnson, age 63, died unexpectedly on Thursday, January 22nd, at her home in Bay City. Evelyn worked at Carleton for 42 years, beginning right after she graduated from high school in June 1969 and retiring in September 2011. During those years, she worked as the secretary in the Modern Languages and Geology Departments, and in the Career Center, but mostly as the Registration Coordinator. Evelyn’s “work sisters” in the Registrar’s office describe her as fun, generous, and witty, as well as a great worker who helped to build a strong team.
Evelyn adored her children and grandchildren and loved working in her garden. She is also survived by her sister, Nikki Lamberty, in the History Department. A more complete obituary can be found at the Benson and Langehough Funeral Home website.
Visitation will be at the Benson and Langehough Funeral Home in Northfield on Tuesday, January 27th from 4 to 7pm. The funeral will also be at the funeral home on Wednesday, January 28th at 11:00am. There will be a celebration of her life at the Northfield V.F.W. after the funeral.
