Janis C. Johnson Obituary

Janis C. Johnson (nee Dreher), 93, of Huntsburg/Middlefield, passed peacefully away surrounded by her family Monday morning, January 8th, 2024 at UH-Geauga Medical Center. She was born in Cleveland on January 3rd, 1931 to the late Theodore and Margaret (Grenig) Dreher. Janis is once again reunited with her loving husband of 63 years, Harry Johnson, who passed away October 26th, 2014.

Janis was a delightful, kind, and soft-spoken woman who took immense pleasure in her family. She consistently provided unwavering support to her children and grandchildren, embracing and encouraging their dreams and adventures. During the summers at the farm in Huntsburg, she welcomed her nieces, nephews, and grandchildren, ensuring they never left her home with an empty stomach. A generous host, Janis made certain that everyone enjoyed a satisfying meal and held a special place for them in her prayers.

Her active involvement extended to Aquilla Road Bible Chapel, where she served as a Sunday school teacher, participated in bible studies, and delighted in crafting new desserts for various gatherings and potlucks. Beyond her family and church commitments, Janis also played a significant role as a dedicated mother, contributing her time to work in the cafeteria at Cardinal schools until her well-deserved retirement.

Janis will be greatly missed by: her children, Kathy Johnson, Susan (Borje) Adolfsson, Mark (Beth) Johnson,

Laura (Paul) Vacik; grandchildren, Michael (Laura Lynn) Johnson, Daniel (Katie) Johnson, Matthew (Meagan) Johnson, Ben Johnson, Jennifer Adolfsson, Jonathan (Ely) Adolfsson, Jessica (Magnus) Wideslatt, Sabrina Vacik, Paul (Beth) Vacik, Samantha (Justin) Walker, Adam Vacik; and 20 great grandchildren Tyler, Hailey, Fredrick, Blake, Cooper, Julia, Seth, Ezra, Asher, Cyrus, Ace, Carlie, Cali, Andrew, Gabriella, Alexandria, Maxwell, Kiana, Alexandra,  Agnes. 

Services will be held on Friday, January 19, 2024 at Abundant Life Ministry Center, 13724 Carlton St, Burton Ohio 44021. Family and friends will be received from 4 PM until the Celebration of Life Service at 6 PM with a dinner to follow. A private family burial will be held at a later date.
