Imogene “Gene” Powers Johnson, wife of the late Sam Johnson and one of the Racine community’s major benefactors, died Saturday night.

Johnson was honored by her family Sunday with a public statement they released, titled, "Our Loving Mother." They wrote that she and Sam Johnson, patriarch of the Johnson family companies, “had an extraordinary partnership built on their shared love of fun and adventure, and unwavering commitment to family, community and to “giving back more than we take from the world.”
