Edna Johnson Obituary
Edna Tromp Johnson, born August 16, 1927, in Oranjestaad, Aruba, N.A., departed from her loved ones just before sunrise Friday, April 18, 2014.
Edna was a homemaker who belonged to Beta Sigma Phi and also worked with the League of Women Voters in Saratoga Springs. She was devoted to her family and friends who often called her for words of comfort and advice. After living in Saratoga Springs for more than 40 years, she moved to Loudonville to be closer to her children. She loved flowers, birds, beating everyone in cards and writing poetry.
Words from our Mother:
"How blessed is the tie that binds
Our heart in lasting love
The comradeship of kindred minds
Is like that above
So when at last we have to part
In sorrow and in pain,
We know we still are joined in heart
Until we meet again."
Our mother found the good in everyone and every situation. Her wisdom and sense of humor brought joy to all. There are no words to express how dearly she is loved and will be missed.
Edna was the widow of Orvind L. Johnson and was also predeceased by her parents, Angel and Gudelia Lacle Tromp, and one brother, Reuben Tromp.
She is survived by two sons, Orvind L. Jr. (Bertha) and Andrew Johnson; three daughters, Julie (Barney) Redden, Margo (Richard) Brash and Jeannette (John) Lis; her eight loving grandchildren, Erik, Melissa, Jeffrey, Rachel, Brian, Scott, Catherine and Michael; five great-grandchildren, Wyatt, Whitney, Alexis, Sophie and Eli; four brothers, Marco, Teofilo, Leo and Bill Tromp; and two sisters, Margo Sark and Olga Wong.
Relatives and friends may call from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, 2014, at William J. Burke & Sons/Bussing & Cunniff Funeral Homes, 628 N. Broadway, Saratoga Springs; 584-5373.
