Kathy Jo Johnson

Kathy Jo Johnson, 64, of McElhattan, passed away Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019 at her home.

Born Sept. 7, 1954 in Lock Haven, she was the daughter of the late Paul and Charlotte Hanley Wheeler, Sr.

In 1973 she married her love, Robert A. “Bob” Johnson, who survives.

Kathy was a homemaker, focusing on caring for and raising her children. Her love for children led her to later work for Moms, Inc. and then Infant Development.

She enjoyed arts and crafts. Most important to her, though, was the time she spent with her family, especially her grandchildren.

In addition to her husband, Bob Johnson, of McElhattan, she is survived by two children, Russ (Jennifer) Johnson, of McElhattan, and Deana Johnson, of Lock Haven; three grandchildren, A.J., Even and Marnee Johnson, all of McElhattan; eight siblings, Peg Gilbert, of Beech Creek, Sandy Hummel, of Mill Hall, Paula (Richard) Glossner, of Lamar, Paul (Lynn) Wheeler, Jr., of Jersey Shore, Dean (Barb) Wheeler, of Virginia, William Wheeler, of Mill Hall, Rod (Tina) Wheeler, of Mill Hall and Kenny (Jodi) Wheeler, of Beech Creek; and a sister-in-law, Helen Wheeler, of Linden.

Along with her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother, Randy Wheeler.

Friends and family will be received on Friday, Jan. 11, 2019 from 6 until 8 p.m. at the Donald G. Walker Funeral Home, Inc., 231 High St., Flemington.
