Jane Johnson
Nov. 28, 1941 - Nov. 17, 2018

Jane passed peacefully in her sleep on Nov 17, 2018. Jane is survived by her loving husband Richard L Johnson of 54 years, her four children, ten grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, one sister, three brothers, and many nieces and nephews. Jane was a loving and wonderful wife and mother. She enjoyed playing games, singing and reading to her grandchildren. 

Jane was a faithful Catholic. Her faith was her foundation with in she taught everyone around her forgiveness, and unconditional love. She was kind, humble and honest. Everyone who knew her loved her.

Jane loved gospel and country music and spending time with family and friends.

Jane suffered from a stroke eight years ago in 2010. Her family did in-home care for five of those years, then she was moved to Eureka Rehab and Wellness, where they could provide the 24 hour care she increasingly needed. Thank you to those of many who took wonderful care of Jane though the years.

Forever in our hearts-
Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow,
but remember me in every tomorrow.

Remember the joy,the laughter,
the smiles, I’ve only gone to rest a while.

Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
my going has eased my hurt and given me relief.

So dry your eyes and remember me,
not as I am now but as i used to be.

I will remember you all and look on with
a smile, understand in your hearts 

I’ve only gone to rest a while.

As long as i have the love of each of you,
I can live in the hearts of all of you.

This is how Jane lived her life — taking care of everyone, putting herself last and even at the end cared more about us then herself. So our dearest Jane, go and rest a while. You will live on through all that loved and respected you.

Goodbye for now, our dearest mother, wife, grandmother, sister and friend. for we will miss and love you always. Rest in peace and we thank you for all the love and life lessons.

The family would also like to thank Hospice of Humboldt. We could not have made it through that last week with out you all.
