Eujeania (Jean) Johnson, age 75, joined her husband (Bob) in heaven on Wednesday June 26, 2013 in her home surrounded by her “girls” she suffered from a long-term illness.
Prior to retirement she served the community as a school crossing guard for 20 years. She stood on the corner of Elm Street and Shoop Ave. She was very passionate about her job and enjoyed helping the children not only in crossing the street and, also with a mitten or zipper now and again.
Jean was born on July 5, 1937 to Donald (Don) and Elizabeth (Betty) (Bittle) Bishop. On November 5, 1955 Jean married her high school sweetheart, Robert (Bob). They enjoyed 55 years of marriage.
Jean was an active member in the First Christian Church and loved to work the chicken pie supper. Baking the chicken pie was her specialty. The tradition started with her mother teaching her and she continued the tradition by proudly teaching her daughters. To continue her love for the church she volunteered her time in the thrift sale and any other church function that she was needed.
Surviving are four daughters; Melanie (Bruce) Meyer, Marcia (David) Pike, Cheri (Rob) Durbin, Robin (Mark) Pollock, grandchildren; Ben (Leslie) Meyer, Ann (Don) Baker, Jr., Nichole (Steve) Waxler, Dustin (Ashley) Demaline, Lance Demaline, Dana (Shawna) Demaline, Robert Durbin, Rebecca Durbin, Darcie (Justin) Anderson, Josie Pike, Brian Pike and 10 great-grandchildren. Besides her Parents she was preceded in death by her husband Bob; son, Robert Donald Jr., son-in-law, Bruce Meyer; and two sisters, Elaine Tanner and Eleanor Frey.
