Karlynn was a sweetheart, our one and only ‘daughter’, and a great ‘sister’ to her brothers, Brenden and Ryan. She was a loving ‘wife’ to Derek, her husband of 6 years. They met at Northwestern College, and he too is a Johnson! Karlynn became a ‘mommy’ to Grant Russell on May 16, 2005. She loved that little guy immensely, prayed for him, and was so proud of him. Karlynn was drawn to nature and the outdoors.

Karlynn was a Special Ed Para at school and a church small group leader/mentor to girls. Several have commented about the lasting impact Karlynn had on their lives.

Karlynn was such a blessing, and we always seek to honor her and her decision to share the gift of life.
