She was united in marriage to Steve Johnson June 13, 1964. Margarette graduated from Mercy School of Nursing in 1963 as a Registered Nurse. Margarette left nursing to raise her family, but returned to her profession working as the Director of Nursing at Bettendorf Healthcare and later a consultant for Main and Locust Pharmacy for over 18 years. Margarette was a loving and compassionate person whose smile lit up a room. She enjoyed socializing with friends and loved playing bridge. A gifted designer, she decorated her home beautifully and helped her family with theirs too. She especially enjoyed making her own greeting cards, sharing them with friends and family. She was an excellent cook and her homemade pizza was the highlight of many family gatherings. She is survived by her husband, Steve; sons, Christopher (Megan), Jay (Kathryn) and Robb (Amy); sisters Cathy and Carolyn, and eight grandchildren, all of whom brought her great joy. Special thanks to Country Manor, Iowa Masonic Nursing Home (in particular Jodi Hippler) and Hospice Compassus. She is preceded in death by her parents and brother, John Pratt.
