To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Barbara Lucille Johnson (Nelson), please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Barbara Passed away peacefully on the morning of May 7, 2020, after a brave four year battle with cancer. Barb formed the bedrock of her family. She was a person constantly busy with multiple interests and talents. These included making pottery, sewing, caring for her horse and riding. Barb also liked to golf and travel with family and friends. Spending time with grandkids was a tremendous source of joy. Barb was a dedicated mother to her sons, helping at school during their early years. Barb worked outside the home too, and especially enjoyed the challenges of her years as a medical transcriptionist. Barb is survived by her husband Edward, sons Matt (Heidilynn), Robert (Erin), Joseph, Derek (Elizabeth), mother Lucille, brothers John, Giles, Peter, sister Gretchen, niece Jenny and other nieces and nephews. Very close to her heart were her grandchildren, Lucy, Rhett, and Iona, in-laws Marne and Pat and good friends. Barb was faithful member of St. Jude of the Lake Catholic Church. Due to Covid-19, only the immediate family will attend the burial service. A memorial mass will be scheduled at a later time when restrictions on gatherings are lifted.
