OBITUARY - FLORETTA JOHNSTON

Floretta Johnston.jpg Floretta JOHNSTON, daughter of Lloyd and Florence FOLTZ, was born on February 3, 1918, in Redding [Ringgold County], Iowa.

On September 7, 1937, she was united in marriage to Robert L. JOHNSTON. To this union four children were born: Bill, Andy, Ann, and Suzi.

Bob and Floretta lived in Mount Ayr, Iowa, until 1962 when, along with their daughters, moved to Mesa, Arizona. Floretta was a homemaker and mother and remained very active until her illness.

Floretta was taken to Mesa Lutheran Hospital on April 14, 1993 and passed away April 16, 1993, with her twin daughters by her side.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Bob, and is survived by her sons: Bill and his wife Donna JOHNSTON of Chino Valley, Arizona, and Andy and his wife Joyce JOHNSTON of San Antonio, Texas; and her twin daughters, Ann and her husband Jack HILL of Redondo Beach, California; and Suzi Gay of Mesa, Arizona, with whom she shared a home; six grandchildren and two sisters, Cleora COHRON and Kathryn MILLER.

POEM
I cannot say,
and I will not say
That she is dead
she is just away,
With a cheery smile,
and a wave of the hand,
She has wandered
into an unknown land,
And left us dreaming
how very fair
It needs must be,
since she lingers there.
So think of her faring on, as dear
in the love of there
as the love of here
Think of her still
as the same, I say:
She is not dead
she is just away.

Services were held April 19, 1993, at Mountain View Memorial Gardens in Mesa, Arizona.

Submitted by Mrs. Andy (Joyce) JOHNSTON, 2008
