Butler, Ohio

BUTLER: June C. Johnson, 70, of Stewart Avenue, Butler, died Thursday, December 6, 2007 in St. Ann’s Hospital, Westerville, following a long illness.

She was born March 5, 1937 in Hamilton to Jason and Mary (Pennington) Richardson.

On July 7, 1954 she married Herman Johnson and together they moved to Richland County in the late 1950’s. He preceded her in death on May 28, 1989.

Though June held a few jobs during her lifetime, her most important role was that of wife and mother.

She enjoyed playing euchre, rummy, and Yahtzee. Every summer she logged hours of time in her flower and vegetable gardens, preparing for the harvest that would keep the family fed through the winter.

June embraced her outdoorsy side, accompanying Herman camping, fishing and hunting. She also enjoyed skeet shooting. Make no mistake about it, her rifle shots were right on target.

She is survived by her children and their spouses Tommy and Susan Johnson, Van Johnson, Deborah and Raymond “Nick” Oswalt, and Shelly Johnson all of Butler; eleven grandchildren and their spouses Jody and Matthew Colegrove, Jason Johnson and his fiancée Jenny Spreng, Jessie and Gabe Thornton, Jeremiah Johnson, Justin Hurrell, Amber Johnson, Nicholas and Kristen Oswalt, Nathan and Tonya Oswalt, Lynsay and Chad Swank, Rodney Sherman, III and Heidi Hamilton, and Ashlie Sherman and Harvey Johnson; 16 great grandchildren Paige, Kylee, Lexie, Mattie, Dylan, Jalyn, Leah, Noah, Ava, Isabella, Ayden, Madison, Trevor, Alyssa, Zackery, and Isabella; a brother and sister-in-law Marvin and Betty Richardson of Napa, California, and a sister Lee Daughtery of Houston, Texas.

In addition to her husband she was preceded in death by an infant sister Betty Lou Richardson, and a brother-in-law Bob Daughtery.

Friends may call Sunday, December 9, 2007 from 5-8 pm in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home where the funeral service will be held Monday at 1 pm. Burial will follow in Bellville Cemetery.

Memorial contributions to the Worthington Township-Butler Rescue Squad may be made at the funeral home.
