Edna L. Johnson (nee: Guy) of Cuba, Missouri was born on July 27, 1933, in St. Louis, Missouri. She left from this life on Monday, June 6, 2022, at her home at the age of eighty-eight.
Edna was united in marriage to Marvin O. Johnson, Jr. on June 12, 1955.
Edna was a wonderful homemaker and loved taking care of her home and family. As a military spouse Edna had to have grit and love as she along with Marvin made sacrifices for his career. They had to nurture and grow in their relationship as they faced the challenges of raising five children as a military family and following military orders as they moved from duty station to duty station during Marvin’s thirty-year Navy veteran career. They would eventually make their home in Cuba and settle into retirement to enjoy their life as grandparents.
Edna is preceded in death by her parents Roy and Frances (Calhoun) Lawson; two sons Larry Abnet and Steven E. Johnson, Sr.
Those who are left to treasure her memory and to continue her legacy are her three children Pat Gilbert and companion John Breslich of Cuba, Marva Simon of Belleville, Illinois, Richard and wife Kathy Johnson of Bartlett, Illinois; five grandchildren Steven E. Johnson, Jr. of Cuba, Dustin and wife Nicole Abnet of Placenta, California, Matthew Zulpo of St. Louis, Missouri, Ayden Johnson of Bartlett, Illinois, Tina Lackey of Sophia, North Carolina; great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and friends.
In keeping with her wishes, Edna will be cremated.
Private family services will be held at Steelville Cemetery, Steelville, Missouri.
The Mizell Funeral Home of Cuba is honored to be serving the Johnson family.
