Janet Jean Johnson Johnson (1927-2018), a long-time resident of Sequim, died peacefully at home on Saturday, the 11th of August.

Born in 1927 in Aberdeen, S.D., Janet was educated at the University of Nebraska where she was a member of the Alpha Xi Delta Sorority.

After World War II she married Charles Emil Johnson and they moved to Denver, Colorado where they raised their three daughters. In 1969 Charlie and Janet moved to San Bruno, California where she joined United Airlines as a secretary until her retirement in 1983. During her career at United, she and Charlie had the opportunity to travel the world and experience many adventures together.

In 1987, Charlie and Janet moved to Santa Rosa, California where Janet discovered a passion for writing that stayed with her always. They moved to SunLand in Sequim in 1990 where she remained for the rest of her life.

Janet spent her time writing, reading, swimming, and was active in St. Luke's Episcopal Church and a co-founder of its Daughters of the King branch. She has written poems, magazine articles, a novella and one book, The Daughter I Lost and Found. She was working on completing her autobiography J to the 4th: A Memoir when she passed, which her daughter Carol will publish posthumously.

Janet is survived by her three children, Jennifer Grenon, Carol Conroy, and Gwen Olsen. She has three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband of sixty-five years, Charlie.

Memorial gifts may be made to St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 525 N 5th Ave, Sequim, WA 98382.

There will be a private interment in Kenwood, California at a future date.
