Janet Dreyer-Johnson, age 76, of Marshalltown and formerly of Storm Lake, Iowa, passed Friday, February 26, 2021, at Israel Family Hospice House in Ames, Iowa.

No public memorial service will be held at this time. Condolences may be expressed online at www.amesmonument.com.


Born January 31, 1945, in Storm Lake, Janet was the daughter of Maurice and Pauline (Mudge) Dreyer. She graduated from Storm Lake High School in 1962, then attended Buena Vista University. Janet was blessed with two children, Bill and Janelle.

In later years, Janet reconnected with her high school sweetheart, Ken Johnson. They were married on October 3, 2005, in Iron County, Utah. Janet and Ken lived in Utah many years and recently returned to Iowa, and made their home in Marshalltown.

Janet loved to crochet and shared many of the hats, scarves, and other treasures she created with local cancer centers. She possessed a keen intellect and loved puzzles and word games that challenged her thinking and kept her mind sharp. She also enjoyed reading, music, and golfing.
Survivors include her husband, Ken; two children, Bill Grieme of Schaller, and Janelle Zoch of Galva; three grandchildren, Kevin Grieme and his son Caden, Stephanie (Zack) Valentine and son Theo, and Mercedes Dreyer.

Janet was preceded in death by her parents; a sister, Barbara Douglass; and her beloved grandparents, Harry and Nell Dreyer and Ray and Mae Mudge.

Ames Monument & Cremation Center has been entrusted with the care of Janet and her family.

Janet will forever hold a special place in my heart. It's hard to believe we met just through me doing her nails and became such wonderful friends over the years, it's almost as if I've known her forever. I felt like she was a family member, she became much more then a nail client. She was my only nail client that attended My wedding and that truly meant the world to me, and she's one of the only friends I have stayed in contact with over the years. My circle of true friends is very small. I am very selective, of who I let be in my kids lives and she and Ken are some of the only people to get to know them, My kids loved her so much and truly thought she was their real grandma. Every time I did her nails or got to visit with her, she would make me laugh because She was so witty. She always complemented me, she had a way of making my day even if I felt down. I cherish all the crocet gifts she made for me and my kids, she was so talented! She would tell me about her kids and grandkids , she loved them so much and took so much pride in all their accomplishments... especially Mercedes, Buffy and Stephanie. When she spoke of all her family you could tell she loved them and they loved her. She was such a one of a kind person and friend, I will truly miss her more then words. Sending prayers and love to her family 💗
