Mary Jane (Eckhardt) Johnston Obituary
Mary Jane Johnston of Jonesville, Michigan passed away on August 31, 2017 at the Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo. She was born on August 10, 1949 in Hillsdale, Michigan to Phillip and Sarah (Levy) Eckhardt.
Mary is survived by two children, Scott Michael Johnston of Missouri and Roger Lee (Linda) Johnston of Jonesville, MI; one grandson, Jesse L. (Brianna) Reade; six granddaughters, Lacey M. Johnston, Harmony D. (Daniel) Miller, Jordan H. Johnston, Jazmyne J. Johnston, Paige C. Johnston and Kyrstain L. Johnston; one brother, Jim (Sally) Eckhardt and one sister, Phyllis (Sam) Ramey.
She was preceded in passing by her parents; her husband, Michael B. Johnston; and her brother, Albert Eckhardt.
Mary was a very fun and loving person. She truly enjoyed life and loved to spend time with her grandchildren, especially taking her granddaughters shopping. She was known to be a "rule breaker" when it came to caring for the grandchildren. The family knew not to bother her when football was on as she was an extreme Pittsburg Steeler fan. She also loved to spend time with her dog, Pepsi who has been a close companion to her.
At her request cremation has taken place and a Memorial Service to honor her life will be held at the Hampton Funeral Home in Hillsdale at 3 p.m. Tuesday, September 5, 2017 with Pastor Paul Pickell officiating. Interment will follow at the Pulaski Cemetery. The family will receive friends for visitation on Tuesday from 2 p.m. until the time of the service.
Friends who wish may make memorial contributions to the CHRON'S & COLITIS Foundation. Envelopes will be available at the funeral home.
