Patricia Rita Wiuff, the daughter of Reuben and Cornelia “Precious” (Olson) Wiuff, was born September 26, 1935 on a farm north of Humboldt, Iowa. She attended South Airline country school through the 8th grade and graduated from Humboldt High School. She then attended comptometer school in Des Moines before going to work for Gus Glaser Meats in Fort Dodge operating their comptometer.
On December 18, 1956, Pat was united in marriage to Mervyn Johnson. The couple made their home in Fort Dodge before moving to Humboldt in 1956. In Humboldt, Pat worked for the Hot Lunch Program at the school and later sold ads for the Humboldt Independent. She then went to work for the Humboldt Trust and Savings Bank for 30 years until her retirement. In addition to her work at the bank, Pat also helped her husband establish the family business, MS Trucking, in March of 1971.
Pat was always willing to work and enjoyed helping her father on the farm and drove the straight truck for Mervyn in the early days of the business. She was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, was active in Christian Women, and enjoyed hosting Bible study every Tuesday in her home. She took great pride in her home and enjoyed decorating and refurbishing it and loved attending auctions and refinishing furniture. She loved her friends and enjoyed their coffee and card games together. Above all, she loved her family.
