Johanna and I were neighbors in McLean many years ago. Although she had moved away, as did some years later, it was always great to see her on her occasional return visits to McLean. A wonderful person, friendly, cheerful, enthusiastic, it was a pleasure to know Johanna. My sincere condolences to all of her family.
