Bengt & Marietta Johnson's Gift to RMC

Posted 11/2/2017 in Fund Development

The late Bengt and Marietta Johnson have been strong advocates and supporters of various organizations in our community.  Regional Medical Center is thankful to also have been included in their charitable donations.  Recently, family members Bob Johnson (brother) and Art Johnson (nephew) were welcomed to RMC to tour the CT Suite area of which Bengt and Marietta’s estate helped fund.

“Having a high-tech CT Suite is very important to our hospital and ultimately our communities, the people we serve,” shares Lynn MacTaggart, Radiology Manager.  “With our CT scanner, we can help diagnose many different things from muscle and bone disorders, detect internal injuries and internal bleeding, and pinpoint an infection or blood clot, among other things.  We really appreciate the Johnson’s very generous donation.”

Bengt and Marietta lived near Manchester throughout their lives and were very active in their community.  They enjoyed farming and being outdoors, where Marietta was known for her beautiful flower gardens.  The Johnson’s were the founding members of Our Savior Lutheran Church and loved helping others.  Giving to others was forefront in their lives as they quietly contributed to many worthy causes over the years.  The Johnson’s didn’t have any children but were very close to their many nieces and nephews.

On behalf of everyone at Regional Medical Center and the communities we serve, thank you to the late Bengt and Marietta for making a difference in your community and to devoting your lives serving others.  You continue to make a difference every day through your charitable donations to many worthy causes including RMC, Our Savior Lutheran Church, Manchester Public Library, Manchester Recreation Center, Iowa Public Television, Good Neighbor Society, and the seminary of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
