Goldie June Johnson, 92, passed away quietly at the Life Care Center of Kansas City, on Monday, November 12, 2012. June was born on April 21, 1920 in Benton City, Missouri. She lived most of her life in Kansas City, Missouri or Kansas, and was a graduate of Rosedale High School. She also lived in Clark, Missouri, California and Nebraska. June was a Regional Manager for Russell Stover's Candies, and a homemaker. June and Robert W. Johnson, her husband and sweetheart, were married August 3, 1988.  She was a beloved wife, sister, daughter, mother, grandmother, aunt and friend. June enriched the lives of all who knew her, and she leaves many in sorrow but with gratitude for having had her in their lives. 

June was my Bonus Mother (I never liked the word step mother).  (My Mother passed away when I was 16.)
  Having June in our lives brought us all great joy.   She will be missed!!!


  1. My prayers and sympathy are with you. I am sorry for the loss of your bonus mother-it is always difficult to lose someone you love.

May you find comfort in knowing you will be reunited with her again as you give you last good-bye. Sending hugs and thanks from Boise. Know you are in my prayers.

  3. My heart goes out to you Julie. May she RIP.
