Memorial services for Dorothy L. Johnson, age 89, who passed away May 25, 2007, in Surprise, Ariz., were held at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29, at the First Presbyterian Church with Pastor Sam Weinschenk officiating.

Dorothy Louise Eley was born in 1918 in Clemons, Iowa, to Martin and Ione Eley. They lived on a farm and Dorothy had one sister, Violet. In 1935 they moved to Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Dorothy worked at several places, and during WWII she was employed at Collins Radio, a large company that did work for the government.

Dorothy married Harold Johnson in 1946 and they were blessed with two sons, Bruce and Doug. They moved to Manson, Iowa, for business reasons. Later, because of Dorothy's health, they moved to Kingman in 1961. They were very active in the community. She had been a member of the Methodist Church both in Manson as well as in Kingman. As a homemaker, Dorothy was very involved as a caregiver to others, especially the elderly and seeing after their needs. They moved to Wickenburg in 1993 and were members of the First Presbyterian Church. Dorothy was involved in the Presbyterian Women's group and Prayer Chain.

She is survived by her husband, Harold of Wickenburg; sons, Bruce of Ft. Collins, Colo., and Doug of Missoula, Mont.; two grandchildren, Alyssa and Nathan Johnson both of Missoula; sister, Violet Hagopian of Phoenix; and many nieces and nephews.

Arrangements were under the direction of Wickenburg Funeral Home.
