Lola Mae Bryngelson was born on February 9, 1932 at home in rural LeGrand, Iowa; she was the daughter of Arthur and Cora (Botton) Bryngelson. Lola attended school in the Green Mountain school district graduating with the class of 1950. On July 26, 1950 Lola was united in marriage to the love of her life, Herbert William Johnson, at her parents’ home in rural Marshalltown. They had lived in the LaMoille area their entire married life. Lola was an Avon Representative for 40 plus years, an active member of the LaMoille Congregational Church and was a 50 year member of the Albion and Marshalltown OES, but her most important job was being a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
