Gainesville - Lois Hill Johnson, 85, of Gainesville, FL passed away June 1, 2014.

Our dear mother left this world to be with our Lord. She was 85 years old. Born in Tifton, GA, she lived most of her life in Florida. Seven brothers and eight sisters precede her in death. She has one living brother, W.H. "Pete" Hill (Catherine) of Blairsville, GA.

Her greatest accomplishment in life, and what she lived for every day, was her family. She was mother to five children, Douglas Johnson, Sr. (Donna) of Gainesville, Vivian Peters (Steven), Evergreen, CO, Joy Lee (Michael), Gainesville, Myra Tarpey, Gainesville, and Jon Johnson (Kathy), Lake Butler, FL. She was a very proud grandmother to six, Douglas Johnson, Jr. (Tara), Abbey Tootle (James), Matthew Boswell (Melissa), Nathan Lee, Lauren Johnson and JD Johnson. Mama was also great-grandmother to Trinity and Douglas (Trace) Johnson, III.

Mrs. Johnson was retired from Publix Supermarkets. She loved her flowers and working in her yard.

There will be a viewing Friday, June 6, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM at the Forest Meadows Memorial Park Central "Chapel in The Meadows" 4100 NW 39th Ave.

Arrangements are under the care of FOREST MEADOWS FUNERAL HOMES and CEMETERIES, 725 NW 23rd Ave., Gainesville, FL 32609 (352) 378-2528. Please sign Lois's guest book at
