Jill K. Johnson, Fjellheim member since September 13. 1989, passed away from natural causes on December 26, 2023, in Pueblo, CO. Jill was a Golden Member and Past President of the Lodge.

Jill worked at Texas Instruments as a machinist for 22 years before retiring.

For many years, Jill was Youth Director for Fjellheim Lodge. She always had activities for the children, no matter if it was a summer picnic, Sankt Hans Aften activities, the Christmas party, Barnelopet, or any other event. She provided games, crafts, singing, decorating the children’s Christmas tree, and of course, St Nick. In one of the old Flammen’s, there was a note that a Christmas Party had 175 adult attendees and 30 children! She handled it with ease and received accolades for it. In 2002, Jill was elected as Vice President and in 2004, was elected as President, and ultimately was counselor. She served in the President’s position through 2006 and was a very effective leader.
