Connie Jean Johnson
February 19, 1951- December 27, 2020
Connie was born in Fairbury, NE and grew up in the small town of Western, NE with her mother, father and three younger brothers and moved to Lincoln in the early 1960’s.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Evelyn Heim Dallmann and father, Leslie Dallmann.
Survived by: Three younger brothers, Jerry (and Christy), Dan (and Cindy), and John (and Gala) Dallmann, two daughters, Angie Bornschlegl (and Garth), Misty Vandergriend (and Chad) and 9 grandchildren (Grace Trexel (and Josh), Doriahn, Boaz, Malachi, Obadiah, Kolia and Judah Bornschlegl and Asher and River Vandergriend, numerous nieces and nephews and other dear family members.
Connie graduated from Joseph’s College of Beauty School and was a hair dresser for many years. She then had various office/secretary jobs as she raised two daughters.
Connie gave her life to Christ in 1985 and her commitment to being a Christian has always been evident.
She had various health conditions for many years including battling cancer three times. She went to meet Jesus peacefully while in hospice care at the Monarch with her two daughters and brother by her side.
We will certainly miss her saying things like “Oh my stars” and “Bless your heart”. We will always be reminded of her when we see the color purple.
She loved all nine of her grandkids so very much and looked forward to the times she got to spend with them. She also loved Nebraska Football and was a die-hard committed fan her entire life. She wouldn’t miss a game and couldn’t believe when people would try and get her to do something that was during a Husker football game.
We will remember her having such a kind heart and always trying to help people even when she needed help herself. We will dearly miss her serving heart and loving spirit.

Condolences for Connie Jean Johnson
To Connie’s family,
The first time I met your Mom through the pain group, her sweet spirit covered our conversation. She always tried to be positive, and even when she was down she found something good to say. She will be missed!!! Praying for you..
So sorry to hear about your loss but am glad she is pain free now able to walk and run the streets of gold. She loved her girls and grandchildren a lot. Love and prayers to the family.
I am so sorry to hear of Connie’s passing. She was my neighbor here at Lincoln Square (formerly Tabitha Village). I enjoyed our visits at the puzzle table…our talks about the Cornhuskers and playing Rack-o with other neighbors at the puzzle table. Her favorite conversations were about her dear family and her grandchildren were the light of her life. She was a dear, brave and kind lady who will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends.
My life was enhanced for having known Connie. It was always enjoyable to sit and talk with her, and to hear her laugh, and see and hear her love as she talked about her family. Grateful to have gotten to know you guys!
Connie was a fun person! I will miss her humor and her laugh! We attended many single events together. Most importantly, she. loved the Lord. I am glad she is out of her pain and misery, but know she is in the Lord’s hands and is in heaven. I will see you again someday, my friend! Condolences to her family and friends.
Sincerely, In Christ
We were sorry to hear of Connie’s passing. Connie’s mother Evelyn passed on her interest in family ties and history to her children. Connie and her brothers continued to support the efforts of the historical society which their mother was an important part of. From the Pennsylvania Colony, we send Connie’s family our deepest sympathy.

John Dallmann and Family. so sorry for your loss. Praying for you! Jim
