At 93, Kathy Johnson keeps things tallied at family’s store

Kathy Johnson is 93 years old and still comes to work at Johnson Hardware in downtown Windom every day, with no plans to quit.

“To be honest,” Kathy said with a laugh, “I can see that it’s probably keeping me healthy, just to keep a schedule and make myself useful instead of sitting around. If I were home, I’d probably sit and watch TV and just get stiff. So it keeps you going.”

She’s a woman with a warm personality and a great smile. She lights up when talking about customers and all the people she handles in person either in the store or on the phone.

Her son Reid now owns the store and the two work together as a team.
