Lois Faye Johnson
January 31, 1936 - June 30, 2020
Lois Faye Johnson, age 84, died peacefully in her sleep at Colonial Vista Care Center on June 30, 2020.
She was born in Beaver, OK to Birdie Bell and George Jennings Hosler. She was the oldest of 5 siblings. She graduated from Mar Vista Sr. High School in Imperial Beach, CA in 1953.
On January 20, 1955, she married William ‘Norman’ Johnson at the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas, NV. They were married until Norm’s death in 1984.
Lois was fortunate to find a loving companion in Bob Yoder to share over 20 years of life, love and traveling adventures before he passed away.
She grew up in Enid, OK, but lived most of her life in Ontario, CA. She worked at the Pomona Valley Workshop as a Case Manager working with disabled adults until retiring and moving to Lake Havassu, AZ with Bob. She spent the past 5 years living in Wenatchee to be closer to her son and daughter-in-law.
She grew up in a Christian home and came to know Jesus at a young age. She recently attended Wenatchee First Assembly of God Church and enjoyed attending Wednesday Morning Breakfast at the “Country Inn” with other Senior Ladies.
Lois will be especially remembered for her love and collection of Teddy Bears. She loved to play Bingo and would attend any and all activities at Prestige Senior Living. She was a member and leader in TOPS weight loss and was even recognized as TOP Loser and Queen of California back in the 70’s. She had an infectious smile and the “gift of gab.” She was described by staff at Colonial Vista as a “Fire-Cracker.”
Lois is survived by her children, Danny (Pam) Johnson of East Wenatchee, WA and Rhonda (Roy) Espie of Hesperia, CA; Sister, Ava (Ray) Manchester of Fort Mojave, AZ; 5 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren as well as many “bonus” family members and loved ones she claimed as her own from the Yoder Family. She was proceeded in death by her parents, George and Birdie Hosler, her husband Norm and siblings Melvin Hosler, Eldon Hosler and Chloella Letterman.
A special thanks to the staff at Colonial Vista Long Term Care for their devotion to her.
There will be a memorial service in Wenatchee, WA and a graveside service in Ontario, CA to be announced at a later date. You are invited to view Lois’s online tribute at www.heritagememorialchapel.com to share a memory or leave a condolence. Arrangements are in the care of Heritage Memorial Chapel, East Wenatchee.
