TROY - A memorial celebration in honor of the life of Adah Johnson will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, 2013, at Riverside Cemetery, Troy, Ohio, with Pastor Bonita Wood of Tipp City UMC officiating.
Adah, age 76, of Port Charlotte, Fla., formerly of Troy, Ohio, passed away Feb. 4, 2013, with family by her side.
A character with a capital "C," she was known as much for her style as she was for her good cooking, sense of humor, tempestuous temper and signature silver streaked hair.
Adah made the best carrot cake and brownies you'd want to sink your teeth into, could knit an entire wardrobe and did crosswords in ink!
Adah is survived by her husband of 56 years, Roy E. Johnson. Fully devoted to her children and grandchildren, she also is survived by four sons, Brian Johnson (Rita Burkhart) of Salem, Ala., Keith Johnson of Houston, Texas, Kevin Johnson (wife, Sheri) of Tipp City, Ohio, and Marty Johnson (wife, Noël) of Powell, Ohio; and five grandchildren, Justin, Amanda, Lauren, Allyson and Max.
Adah lived life large and that sentiment is exemplified as we can almost hear her utter those famous words once again, " I am woman, hear me roar!"
We love and miss you Adah.
