Obituary Condolences

BENNINGTON -- A celebration of the life of Shirley M. Johnson was held on Thursday afternoon, Sept. 2, at the Mahar & Son Funeral Home in Bennington, with the Rev. Mary Lee-Clark, pastor of the Second Congregational Church of Bennington, officiating. Tributes and remembrances were offered by her daughter Cheryl LaCroix and her son Robbie Johnson.

The interment services followed in the family lot in the Village Cemetery on Morgan Street in Bennington, with the Rev. Lee-Clark offering the words of committal. Bagpiper Anne Spencer played “Amazing Grace” as Mrs. Johnson was moved to her gravesite. As a sign of the lifting of her spirit, several in attendance simultaneously released butterflies. A memorial chest was filled with several pieces of memorabilia and sealed by her immediate family to close the services.

Mrs. Shirley Johnson, a longtime resident of Murphy Road in North Bennington, died at her home on Monday morning, Aug. 30, 2004, following a long illness.
