Margaret “Peggy” J. Johnson, age 84, passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 3, 2018, in Kalispell, MT, surrounded by family. She was born in 1933, in Anaconda, MT, to Dennis and Rose Callan. Her early years were colored by her beloved extended family and friends, her Catholic upbringing, and Anaconda’s rich mining history. She graduated from Western Montana College with an elementary teaching degree and began teaching in Kalispell in 1954. She married the love of her life, Kevin (Cab) Johnson in 1956. For many years, Peggy and Cab’s lives centered around St. Matthew’s Catholic Church and School where she taught 2nd grade and where her children attended school. Peggy was born to be a teacher. Her love of teaching was a life long endeavor. Later, in her retirement years, former students would express to her their fond memories of being in her classroom. She enjoyed a good golf game, celebrating her Irish heritage and especially loved her weekly bridge games with her dear friends. She and Cab loved their winters in Arizona where they met many life long friends. Spending time with her 9 grandchildren was her greatest joy. In her later years Peggy was an active parishioner at Risen Christ Catholic Church in Evergreen, MT. She is preceded in death by her husband, Kevin. She leaves behind her 5 children, Mary (Marc) Connolly, K.C. (Rachelle) Johnson, Janice (Tim) Dunnahoo, Ruthann (Jeff) Little and Joe Johnson, her nine grandchildren, Eric, Megan, Abby, Rusty, Mackenzie, Kevin, Clare, Alex and Callan, three great grand children, Kolbe, Caleb and Mateo. A funeral mass will be held at Risen Christ Catholic Church on Friday, June 8, 2018 at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Matthew Catholic School or Risen Christ Catholic Church. Darlington Cremation and Burial Service is caring for Peggy’s family.
