Louise Annette Sittler Johnson

Louise Johnson peacefully went home to the Lord on January 24, 2019 after a short illness. She was a life -long resident of Weld County. She born in Burns, Wyo. on July 17, 1925 to Oswald and Helen Sittler of Grover, CO. At about 2 years old, the family moved to Greeley where she attended school from pre-school through high school at the Laboratory School at CSCE. After high school graduation, she attended and graduated from Colorado State College of Education. She spent almost her entire teaching career in Weld County schools, teaching at Gilcrest, then in Greeley at Franklin Elementary, and finally at Maplewood Elementary.

In 1950 she married Frank Fisher and together they lived an adventurous life in Greeley, Craig, and at Rocky Mountain National Park until Frank's death in 1966. She continued teaching and traveling and met and married Dean W. Johnson in 1983. Together they traveled throughout the country and Canada and cruised to Hawaii, South America and New England and ending up visiting all 50 states. With the marriage, she also inherited 3 grown children and eventually saw her granddaughter born and later a great grandson. She especially enjoyed being a grandma.

She was a proud life-long member of the First Congregational Church of Greeley where she has remained active until very recently. Her church and family were an important part of her life.

Louise was preceded in death by her parents, Oswald and Helen Sittler: her husband Frank Fisher: and her 2nd husband Dean Johnson. She is survived by her step children Susan Leech (Ted) of Valley Center, CA; Ron Johnson (Sandie) of Colorado Springs; Jim Johnson of Tullahoma, TN; her beloved granddaughter Jamie Kiser (Bryce) of Menifee, CA: and her great grandson Reid Kiser.

To the family of Louise Fisher Johnson,

I am deeply saddened for your loss. As many of the messages here, I too, was a fifth grade student of Mrs. Fisher at Maplewood Elementary. I was fortunate enough to have several wonderful teachers over the years but Mrs. Fisher was my favorite and the one that influenced me the most. She possessed lovely grace, poise and genuine passion for teaching her students. I have lived in Denver over 30 years but when I go to Greeley to visit family I have seen her a few times over the years, most recently last summer, and she always remembered my name.

May you have peace and comfort knowing she is with our Lord in heaven.

I was so sorry to see of Mrs. Johnson's passing. Mrs. Fisher was my fifth grade teacher at Maplewood, and definitely one of my favorites!! I was the new girl in school, and she was so nice to me! I just recently saw her at breakfast one morning, and went over and said hello, and right away she said "Hello Cindy". The world has lost a wonderful, loving woman! I'm so sorry for your loss!

With sympathy to the family of one of our favorite teachers, Miss Sittler, who taught those of us who were in the class of 1958, in the3rd grade at Gilcrest . Having the opportunity to have lunch with her a few years ago, we shared our fond memories and now 60 years since graduation we will still reflect on our time with her.

I also had Mrs. Fisher Johnson for fifth grade at Maplewood Elementary School. Not long ago my family was eating at Village Inn and I took my 7 year old granddaughter over to her table to introduce them. She was with her husband and another couple. I called her Mrs. Fisher, I didn't know she was also a Johnson now. She was so sweet and just as I remembered her. She seemed so happy to tell me about her marriage and their travels. I was surprised to see her hubby had passed away also. I don't feel as though it was that long ago that I met him. May God carry you through this loss with peace and mercy. Blessings, Lori Johnson-Bucklen

what a beautiful mother Louise was. She made me laugh many times while visiting her. A special story was when she taught school in Gilcrest. She laughed at the way she handled the young boy who sat on the window and threatened to jump. I enjoyed her stories and her. I will miss her terribly. She was always so active and independent, never complaining, even when the elevator would break down and she would have to take 4 flights of stairs.

My heart is with your family and my prayers are with you.
A dear friend,
with love,

Mrs. Fisher Johnson was my 5th grade teacher at Maplewood. I remember her as a very strict disciplinarian. Old school for sure. She kept us all in line. I remember taking a field trip to the Post Office where we met Mr. Dean Johnson. Later to become her husband.

Later in life I would see her at church and at many funeral services over the years. She always had a warm smile and a hug for me! She ALWAYS wore dresses. She was one of those teachers that really made an impact on me and helped shape the man I became. I am grateful to have had her as a part of my life!!!

Rest In Peace Mrs. Fisher!

With gratitude,
