I found your Johanna in Michigan in 1920-1930 as wife of Nels Nyholm. A daughter Hanna there in 1920. Not sure she's Johanna's daughter or Nels' daughter. Found a 1913 marriage for Nels Nyholm and Johanna (Hanna) Sundholm. She was 51, he 52. Also found the emigration records for a Hanna Sundholm in 1909. It would appear she was married twice, first Sundholm, then Nyholm. There's more under Sundholm, but I'll have to post later.

1920 Census for Jonas Sundholm family.

So if I'm correct, Johanna Storkamp was married first to a Sundholm, had two children, Jonas and Ester, was widowed. She came to US in 1909 with daughter Ester, son was already here, and married Nels Nyholm, who was probably the father of the Hanna Nyholm seen on 1920 census. Jonas Sundholm married Emma Dixon and had 4 children by 1920. Ester Sundholm married Victor Johnson.

Here is Jonas and Emma's very large family in 1930, 9 children.
I found a Sundholm family site. There are lots of pictures and an email contact for the information.
For some reason I can't seem to attach the url, but if you google "Betsy Sundholm's Family Page", you should find it
