John J. Johs, 79, Bismarck, formerly of Napoleon, died peacefully Feb. 6, 2000, at his home. Services will be held at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at Church of St. Anne, Bismarck, with the Rev. Ed Wehner officiating. Burial will be at 4:30 p.m. at St. Anthony Cemetery, Napoleon.

John was born Oct. 6, 1920, in Logan County, the son of John and Johanna (Schwartzenberger) Johs. He grew up on the family farm and received his elementary education in Weigel Township. In the late 1930s, he worked for the National Youth Administration. He continued to live and farm with his family. On Oct. 30, 1944, he married Ann Gefre at St. Aloysius Catholic Church in rural Hague. They lived on the family farm southwest of Napoleon.

John served on the school board for Weigel Township and was a local field representative for the Agricultural Stabilization Conservation Service. In 1973, John and Ann moved to Bismarck where he was employed with the Knights of Columbus and later at Montgomery Ward and Taxi 9000. He also worked with his son, George, as a carpenter, and with his sons-in-law, Allen and Leonard, in their construction company.

He was President of the St. Anthony's Farmers Union in rural Napoleon, and was a member of the Knights of Columbus since 1945, the Eagles Club, and St. Anne's Catholic Church. Until recently, he and his wife, Ann, managed to take a yearly vacation trip. He spent most of the last 25 years enjoying his grandchildren and was always a willing baby-sitter.

John was preceded in death by one son, George; his parents; and five brothers and three sisters. (Eastgate Funeral Service, Bismarck)
