Kathy Jo Johnson, 64, of McElhattan passed away Saturday, January 5, 2019 at her home.
Born September 7, 1954 in Lock Haven, she was the daughter of the late Paul and Charlotte Hanley Wheeler, Sr.
In 1973 she married her love, Robert A. “Bob” Johnson, who survives.
Kathy was a homemaker, focusing on caring for and raising her children. Her love for children led her to later work for Moms, Inc. and then Infant Development.
She enjoyed arts and crafts. Most important to her, though, was the time she spent with her family, especially her grandchildren.
In addition to her husband, Bob Johnson of McElhattan, she is survived by two children, Russ (Jennifer) Johnson of McElhattan and Deana Johnson of Lock Haven; three grandchildren: A.J., Even and Marnee Johnson, all of McElhattan; eight siblings: Peg Gilbert of Beech Creek, Sandy Hummel of Mill Hall, Paula (Richard) Glossner of Lamar, Paul (Lynn) Wheeler, Jr. of Jersey Shore, Dean (Barb) Wheeler of Virginia, William Wheeler of Mill Hall, Rod (Tina) Wheeler of Mill Hall and Kenny (Jodi) Wheeler of Beech Creek; and a sister-in-law, Helen Wheeler of Linden.
Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother, Randy Wheeler.
Friends and family will be received on Friday, January 11, 2019 from 6 until 8 p.m. at the Donald G. Walker Funeral Home, Inc., 231 High St., Flemington.
Memorial contributions in Kathy’s name may be made to the American Kidney Fund through the funeral home.
