Mildred Jane Johnson (1921 - 2010)

The Rev. Mildred J. Johnson, 88, passed away on April 18,2010 at her residence in Logan, Utah. She was born in Logansport, Indiana on October 28, 1921 to Dr. Harry Charles and Jessie Heckard Johnson.
Music was always a huge part of Mildred's life. From a very early age she learned to play piano and violin, then switched to viola when she went to college. Following her graduation from Oberlin College with a B.A. in Music Education and Piano, she taught for two years in junior colleges. She then completed an M.A. degree in Music History from Westminster Choir College, Princeton, N.J. Next, Mildred received a Fulbright Research Fellowship to continue her music history studies for a year in Paris. After her return from Europe, she completed the requirements for the PhD degree in Musicology from Indiana University.
From 1965-1995, Mildred taught music history and viola at several colleges and universities around the United States. After teaching at Bennett College in New York, she completed her teaching career as Professor of Music at Utah State University, Logan, Utah (1978-1995).
Since moving to Logan in 1978, Mildred was an active member of St. John's Episcopal Church, where she served as choir director and occasional organist. She also completed a special diaconate training program in the Episcopal Church. On May 21, 1991 Mildred was ordained a Deacon by The Rt. Rev. George E. Bates, 9th Episcopal Bishop of Utah. She was a faithful servant to her church in this calling.
Talented musician, gifted teacher, and dear friend, Mildred Johnson will be deeply missed.
A memorial service at St. John's Episcopal Church, Logan, will be announced at a later time.
