Donna Jean Johnson, 92, passed away peacefully at home on New Year's Day 2021 in South Shore Village at Lake Nacimiento, near Paso Robles, CA. She is remembered lovingly by her entire family, Leroy B. Johnson (husband), her two sons, Ralph Johnson, (wife Billie), and Raymond Johnson, (wife Maureen), her daughter, Carolyn Janis, (husband Richard), her sister, Carolyn Eisenberg, and her five grandchildren, Leesa Kercheville (husband Josh), William Janis, Danny Johnson, Kimberly Johnson and Taylor Johnson.
She was born in Eire, PA in 1928, spending her youth there until marrying her precious husband Leroy on August 7, 1948. The two were married for 72 years! The couple relocated to California in 1952 where she became "the quintessential old-school-mom," and, a most-devoted wife. Among several jobs throughout her life, she also had an illustrious career at the Northrop Corporation.
She is preceded in death by her father, Eugene "Pete" Schaal, mother, Edna Schaal, and her brother, William Schaal. The family will have a Celebration-of-Life at a time and date to be determined.
