Nedra was born Dec. 26, 1932, in Haverhill, Mass., to the late Edgar and Ellen (Soraghan) Johnson. A homemaker with a sense of adventure, Nedra enthusiastically supported her husband's career around the country and to Iran. She enjoyed travel, gardening, sailing, reading and spoiling her grandchildren. Nedra was a bridge player and golfer, scoring two holes-in-one, as a career highlight. She was a parishioner at St. Benedict Catholic Church in Crystal River.
Left to cherish her memory are her son Matthew (Elizabeth) Baumeister, Jacksonville, Fla.; her daughter Nora (Joseph) Matus, Bethesda, Md.; brother Hugh (Karen) Johnson, N.H.; sister Claire Maguire, Mass.; and grandchildren Andrew and Gabby Matus and Jackson and Anna Baumeister. She was preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Joseph, on Nov. 13, 2012.
