Betteye Mae (Taylor) Johnson, age 73, formerly of Remer, MN, passed away on Friday, November 16, 2018, at Grand Itasca Hospital in Grand Rapids, MN.
Betteye was born on November 9, 1945, in Robinsdale, MN, the daughter of the late Albert and Rose (Schon) Taylor, Sr. She grew up in the Twin Cities and moved to Remer, MN, when she was 10 years old and attended Remer High School. She married Ronnie Johnson and they made their home in Remer, MN. She was a stay at home mom and worked occasionally as a waitress until the kids were through with high school. She married Floyd Johnson and enjoyed accompanying him all over the US with his trucking business until his retirement.
