On November 26, 2012 Dolly Johnson passed away peacefully at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home at the age of 86.
Sadly predeceased in March 2009 by her loving husband of 62 years, Jarrett Johnson.
She will be forever missed by her children Mel (Heather), Ann (Randy), and Susan (Andy). Her grandchildren Steven (Leah), Craig, Rebecca (Trevor), Danny, Matthew (Christine). Her great grandchildren Jarrett, Madison, Lucas, Danica and Kahlan.
Dolly was born in Arrow Park, B.C. and lived in Burton where she married her sweetheart in 1947 and began raising her family. When her husband worked away in logging camps, she raised their children while tending the farm and a large garden. In 1965 the family moved to Kamloops where she continued to enjoy every year harvesting a huge garden for her family and friends while working part time at the Kamloops News. In 1987 when her husband retired, together they took up horseshoes, camping and golfing which took them to almost every golf course in B.C. They were members of the Chase Golf Club for over 20 years and made many friendships.
In January 2010, Mom moved from the family home of 45 years in North Kamloops to Kamloops Seniors Village. Mom embraced her new home where she made new friendships and touched many people with her hugs and shoulder massages. She always had a constant smile and a very caring way for everyone. Mom so enjoyed her grandchildren and great grandchildren and spent many enjoyable hours playing with them on the floor.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation for the loving and compassionate care given to Mom by Dr. Wiedrick, Dr. Schumacher, the staff of Kamloops Seniors Village and Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home.
We invite you to join us in celebrating Mom's life on Saturday December 1, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. at Kamloops Funeral Home, 285 Fortune Drive, Kamloops B.C.
In lieu of flowers, should friends and family desire, donations to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home or the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation Pediatrics Ward, in memory of Dolly Johnson would be appreciated.
