JOHNSON Edna Louise Snyder Johnson, died peacefully after a long and depressing struggle with Dementia with Lewy Bodies. Mom can finally join her husband Chuck in a better place and both can now rest peacefully. She was an expert knitter, African violet propagator and her most important roles; wife, mother, sister, daughter and grandmother. Edna was the daughter of the late Chuck and Eva Snyder, big sister to Irene Houman (Bill), Sue Snyder-Jones (Jim) and the late Linda Kay Wooton (Jack). Edna is the mother of Dodie Johnson (Sara and Bob Nichols, Emily and Bill Fankhauser); Jo Anne (Don) Cunningham (Travis, Lance, Shaun); Mike (Linda) Johnson (Michael and JJ Mathews, Brittany and Brandon Johnson); Jim (Susan) Johnson (Justin, Kendal and Keylee Johnson, Blake, Emilie, Jeremy and Jordan Smith); Peggy (Martin) Brady (Tyler, Ryan and Quinn) and Lori Humphry (Stacia and Kacey). Mom didn't have the opportunity to get to know her great-grandchildren; Grant Nichols, Danny Mathews and Ayden Johnson. Mom (Grandma) was happiest with her grandkids around her and would have been delighted with these three little boys. She was an aunt to many nieces and nephews and each of them had a special place in her heart. She also leaves special friends Dick Fankhauser and Linda and Bobb Bayse, and Ruth and Don Snouffer who traveled frequently from Fairborn OH to visit with Mom at Wesley Glenn. Her grandkids will especially remember the days at the Hardesty Heights pool, Circle S Pumpkin Patch and the Columbus Zoo. The family will miss her cheese potatoes, excellent cabbage rolls and deliciously dry beef roasts. Edna was a long-time employee of Southwestern City Schools starting at Park Street Middle School and ending at West Franklin Elementary. She was a volunteer at the Thrift Shop in Grove City for many years benefitting the American Cancer Society. She was also a member of the Order of Eastern Stars. A special thanks to Drs. Mark Ricaurte and Susan Parsons for years of health care and to the incredible staff at Wesley Glen. She didn't want to be moved there but came to love the place and staff who quickly adopted her and cared for her so well. A big thanks to the Mount Carmel Hospice team for their kind words of support and care oversight during this protracted illness.
