Della Marie Johnson was born on December 3, 1926 in Buffalo, Wyoming to Chris and Pauline Johnson. Della grew up and went to school in Buffalo and graduated from Johnson County High School with the class of 1944. After high school she attended Marion College in Marion, Indiana and graduated in 1948. Della returned to Buffalo and taught in the elementary school for 7 years and in 1955 she moved to St Paul, Minnesota to teach and attain her Master’s Degree at the University of Minnesota. During her career in the St. Paul School System she started out as an elementary teacher. Using her musical background, she ended up as the assistant superintendent of music for the St. Paul School District. She was in this role for several years before becoming a principal in the St Paul School District. She was in this role for many years before retiring in 1982 and returning to Buffalo to care for her mother. Della’s passions were her family, church and faith. She was dedicated to her community, and the State of Wyoming. She was very proud to be a Wyoming gal. She was a caring friend to countless people and will be greatly missed.
Della is survived by three nephews, Clifford Huffman and his wife Eileen of Del Mar, California, David Huffman and his wife Elise of San Diego, California and Richard Huffman and his wife Mary of Lafayette, Colorado. She was preceded in death by her parents and one sister.
