Peggy Sue Johnson
August 12, 1959 ‒ November 21, 2020
Mount Vernon, Ohio
MT VERNON: Being homesick for a country to which she had never been before. She took her heavenly flight to where her faith ended is sight.
Peggy Sue (Tingley) Johnson, age 61, of Mt. Vernon, went home to be with her Heavenly Father on Saturday morning, November 21, 2020 at Avita Hospital of Ontario, after a short illness. She was born August 12, 1959 to Charles E. & Joanne (Sauder) Tingley of Mansfield.
Growing up on the Tingley Fruit Farm on the Piper Rd. north of Mansfield, she learned the value of hard work, dedication to family, and a love for service to others.
Peggy graduated from Madison Comprehensive High School at the top of her class in 1977. In 1979, she married her high school sweetheart, James Johnson.
In 1984, she and James welcomed their first born son Robert Tyler, followed by Christopher Daniel in 1986, and Samuel Travis in 1990. She dedicated her life to raising her sons and supporting her husband to be the men that they should be for Christ.
A beautiful and blessed lady clothed with strength and dignity. She always found time to have joy with an unforgettable laugh. She spoke with wisdom and faithful instruction to those closest to her, almost always over a cup of coffee.
Never with idle hands, Peggy was often found writing beautiful poetry, quilting a new blanket for newlyweds, or cooking a meal or baking a desert for her friends and family.
On July 23, 1995, Peggy confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and was immersed for the forgiveness of sin and to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit with her oldest son Tyler a most precious moment she always cherished. An active member of the Church of Christ, Peggy faithfully served Christ in various ministries throughout the years including, women’s ministries, special events, and teaching women’s bible studies & girl’s Sunday school classes.
She is survived by her devoted husband of 41 years James; their sons Robert (Tatiana) Johnson of Norwalk, Connecticut, Christopher and Samuel Johnson of Mt. Vernon; grandchildren Nathaniel, and Zoe Johnson; mother Joanne Tingley of Bellville; sister Cheryl Ashbrook of Ashland; brothers Timothy (Sonia) Tingley of Butler, and Thomas (Laurie) Tingley of Mansfield; mother-in-law Marilyn Johnson of Mansfield; sisters-in-law Deb (Darrel) Brown of Bellville, and Cara (Mike) Carey of Charleston, South Carolina; numerous nieces, and nephews; and a host of dear friends.
Peggy was met at the gates of heaven by her 3 unborn babies; her father Charles E. Tingley; her brother, Charles R. Tingley; her father-in-law Robert P. Johnson; and many faithful saints.
Peggy Johnson has left a heritage of faithfulness that is accompanied with a lifetime of strength, courage & wisdom. In her final hours, she cheered on her husband and sons, to contend for the faith that was most precious to her and not to miss heaven.
The Johnson family will receive friends on Friday, November 27, 2020 from 1-3 & 5-7 pm at the Church of Christ at Millwood, 10900 Millersburg Rd. in Howard, where a worship service, giving glory to God for the life of Peggy Johnson will be held on Saturday at 11 a.m. Friends may also call the hour prior to the service.
