    Mrs Johnson was the best teacher ever. She made learning fun for all her students. I will never forget her. So sorry for the family's loss of this sweet lady. Channing I have never forgotten you either. I loved babysitting for you. Pam Brenda and I visited Anne at her home last summer and we had a wonderful visit. So glad we had this time with her to reminisce .

    I was a student at Mercy School of Nursing in the late '60's, Anne Johnson was a wonderful teacher and friend. So sad to here of her passing.

  • Jim/Kelly Cochran

    We were saddened to learn of Anne's passing. We offer our condolences and trust that some comfort will be found in the knowledge of a life well lived.

    I knew Ann for many years as a regular in CMC's cardiac rehab program. We would take seriously our commitment to exercising but found time to briefly chat. Early in the AM it's hard to have long conversations. Also we were aware of when anyone in the group was away for a while and inquired as to their well being.. A sad feeling reached me today as I learned of her passing: her presence in the room, where she parked her vehicle but mostly her smile and kind words she often shared. I will miss her.
