Claire A. Johnson

Social Security worker

Claire Allen Johnson, a retired field representative for the Social Security Administration, died Feb. 21 of heart failure at Keswick, where he had lived since November. He was 65.

After working as a speech therapist in public schools in Illinois and Arizona, Mr. Johnson went to work for the Social Security Administration in San Mateo, Calif., in the mid-1960s. He was transferred to Baltimore in 1968.

After his retirement in 1988, Mr. Johnson traveled throughout the world. He especially enjoyed visiting relatives in Norway.

He was a volunteer at Keswick in Roland Park and was a member of the usher corps at Grace United Methodist Church in Baltimore.

A native of Minnesota, Mr. Johnson received a bachelor of arts degree from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minn., and a master's degree from Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill.

Mr. Johnson served in the Army during the Korean War.

He is survived by a brother, Lowell Johnson of Winona, Minn., and a sister, Ardyce Johnson Davies of White Bear Lake, Minn.; two nephews; five nieces; and three grand-nieces.

A memorial service was held yesterday at the Grace United Methodist Church. Interment was at Druid Ridge Cemetery in Pikesville.

The family suggested memorial contributions to the Grace UM Church Organ Fund or the American Heart Association.
