Maureen was born July 23, 1937, to Gilbert and Gena (Baglien) Saxum in Winger Township, Polk County, Minn.
She grew up on the family farm in Winger. She later moved to Bemidji, where she worked for the Employment Office. There she met the love of her life, Duane W. Johnson.

Together, they moved to International Falls, where they owned and operated BJ Music and raised their four children; Dave, Susie, Doree and Heidi. In 1985, they moved to St. Cloud, where she worked for the IRS in the St. Cloud Federal Building until she retired.
