Benefit planned for Carol "Miller" Johnson Family and friends of Carol "Miller" Johnson are hosting a benefit Saturday, Sept. 20, at the Gayville Community Center in Gayville. The benefit will consist of a free will donation for a supper starting at 5 p.m.
The meal is a pork loin sandwich, baked beans, chips, lemonade and coffee. An auction will start at 7 p.m. with something for everyone. Music will follow the auction.
Johnson grew up on a farm northwest of Gayville. She attended Gayville school and graduated from Gayville-Volin in 1973. She lives in Sioux City with her two sons, Jack and Aaron. Her parents are Mark and Lorraine Miller. She has two sisters, Diane and Karla, and one brother, Ron.
Johnson has recently undergone major surgery for cancer and is unable to work until she has complete recovery which will be two to three months. Prior to surgery she had her own alteration business called, "The Threaded Needle" in Sioux City. Her shop is temporarily closed until she has recovered.
This benefit is to help support her day-to-day needs through her months of recovery. An account has been opened for her at CorTrust Bank of Gayville. If you have any questions or items for the auction contact Pam Ganschow at 267-2607 or CorTrust Bank at 267-4487.
