Douglas S. Johnson, 65 of Presho passed away March 27, 2022, after a courageous, year long battle with esophageal cancer. A public come and go visitation will be Saturday April 2nd at Isburg/Hofmeister Funeral home in Presho at 9:45-10:45 followed by a graveside memorial service at the Earling Cemetery at 11:00. Doug was born Dec. 6, 1956 to Donald and Avys (Fosness) Johnson. He was the oldest of four children. He grew up on the family farm north of Kennebec. As a child, most days Doug would be found with his special aunt Clara (Johnson) Freelove. He attended Washburn Country School north of Presho in Grouse Township. A 1975 graduate of the newly formed Lyman High School, Doug had great pride in being part of the first true Lyman class (attending all four years). Doug was active in 4H showing livestock, football, and wrestling. His true passion was farming; he was grateful for the opportunity to farm/ranch with several generations including his grandparents Oliver (Ole) Johnson and Adolph (Duff) Fosness, his father Don, his sons, and even his grandsons. Doug would often work the night shift in the field when the tractors would run 24/7; he told stories of tuning into 1520 AM KOMA out of Oklahoma City - listening to the oldies all night while planting or plowing the land he so loved. Nothing pleased him more than passing his love for the land and livestock down to his children and grandchildren. In 1975 Doug attended Mitchell Tech, where he would attain a degree as a Powerlineman. It was while in school that he met the love of his life, Gloria Heisinger. They were united in marriage on September 24, 1976. Doug and Gloria would then move to Midland, SD for a short time where he took a job with West Central Electric. He would later be transferred back home to Presho, where not only did he work as a lineman, but also farmed, ranched, and managed Fosness Motel until closing in 1987. In his 30+ years with West Central Electric, Doug worked his way up the ranks and would eventually be named foreman in 1995, and kept those duties until retirement in 2006. Doug told many stories of storm jobs leaving for weeks at a time to help restore power to other communities during ice storms and blizzards. He had great pride in being a member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), and stood strong during the strike of 1978, not returning to work until needs were met. Doug was especially proud of his family. He and Gloria were blessed with three boys -- Ross, Chad, and Beau ("my three sons" - as Doug would often refer to them). He loved watching his kids and grandkids compete in sports. In 2004, he officially became "Grandpa", a title that he wore like a medal of honor and brought out a softer side of him. Doug was active in the Masonic lodge, and at the time of his passing, he was serving as Worshipful Master of the Western Star #157 in Presho. His commitment continued while he attained the 33 degrees to become a Shriner and was serving as a member of the NAJA Shrine Club in Rapid City. He was also a long-time member of the Presho Lions Club and the Presho Volunteer Fire Department. Doug had a passion for muscle cars of the 60's and 70's and could name almost any make, model, or year at just a glance: with just a quick listen he could identify what motor was in it. He found pleasure in the simple things: a country drive with friends, cheering on the Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders, getting everyone around the kitchen table and sharing stories with a "Jack N Coke" or a "Bud", trips to Deadwood, being the turn man on the family cattle drive, and making the best baked beans in the State (self-proclaimed). Doug is survived by his wife of 45 years Gloria (Heisinger); his sons Chad (Darcy) Johnson and Beau (Lindsey) Johnson; his grandchildren Gunner, Maverick, Layton, and Henry (Hank); his mother Avys (Fosness) Johnson, his sisters Julie (Doug) Plooster and Jill (Doug) Hohn. He is preceded in death by his son Ross Johnson, father Donald Johnson, and brother Theron Johnson. A celebration of life will be held at Jet Lanes in Presho following the burial, all are welcome to attend. In lieu of flowers, donations may are appreciated to defray medical expenses.

For those unable to attend the services they will be live streamed on Marion's obituary page the day of the service. Marion was loved by many in this world, and she left a positive legacy with both her family and all who knew her. She will be dearly missed. Marion was born on July 20th, 1927, to Hilmer M. and Susie Marie Lillebo. She was raised on a farm southeast of Presho and graduated from Presho High School in 1946. After graduating, she worked at The Presho State Bank and later attended Nettleton Business College in Sioux Falls, SD. Marion married V. Dean Brakke on September 11, 1948, and the two lived and worked together on their farm until the fall of 2016 when they moved to Edgewood Senior Living in Pierre. Their marriage was blessed with four children: Curtis, Verne, Karen, and Marc. Marion was very active in the American Lutheran Church of Presho. She participated in Ladies Aide and through the years she crocheted hundreds of layettes and sewed many quilts for the Lutheran World Relief Program. Marion was also a very talented seamstress, winning competitions and even sewing her daughter's wedding dress. Marion shared this talent with her community as a 4-H leader in Lyman County for 20 years. Over the years, Marion taught many girls how to cook and sew. She also helped lead the agricultural division of 4-H. Marion's passion for teaching the next generation of 4-H participants about agriculture came from her love for raising cattle. Marion and her husband Dean were very proud of the herd of Registered Herefords they had built over the years. She loved checking the cows during calving season and seeing the newborn calves as they came in. She could often be found talking to and brushing the bulls and had many of them tame in time for their spring sale. Marion was a gifted artist. She enjoyed learning about and creating art. She participated in and hosted the Paint and Sketch Club and the Canvas Backs. Marion's love of art was very diverse and included oil painting, watercolor, pen and ink, duck carving, and calligraphy. She displayed and sold many of her paintings at The Gallery in Pierre and Hutches Cafe in Presho. It was very important to Marion that each family member received a piece of her art work. Marion and Dean enjoyed traveling, and their trips to Norway and Hawaii were among their most treasured experiences. They also enjoyed summer camping trips to Hart Ranch and the winter trips to Arizona where they were able to spend time with their son Curtis and his family. She and Dean made many a road trip to attend their grandchildren's activities. More than anything, Marion loved her family. Each leaf on her family tree had a special place in her heart and she knew how to make every one of them feel special and loved. She always kept up with their many activities and accomplishments and enjoyed hearing about what they were doing. Marion was preceded in death by her husband, Dean; her parents; three brothers, Harold, Edwin, and Gordon; her son, Marc Andrew Brakke; and granddaughter, Beth Lynn Brakke. Marion is survived by sons Curtis (Barbara) of Pierre and Verne (Debbie) of Pierre; daughter Karen (Wayne) Tuschen of Madison; twelve grandchildren; nineteen great-grandchildren; brother, Rodney; sisters, Gloria Leichtnam, Deanna Johnson, and Judith Cronin; and numerous nieces and nephews. Marion filled this world with her light and love, but we take comfort now in the fact that she is in her heavenly home reunited with her husband and in the presence of Peace.
