Marilyn Genevieve Johnson, age 79, left this earth and joined her
husband Tom and granddaughter Ashley in eternal peace on Thursday,
Aug. 27, 2020, after her long battle with cancer. She is survived by

(Roland); her four children, Bernice Johnson Mills (Daren), Kathleen
Kuc, Michael Johnson, and Donald Johnson (Raechel); 12 grandchildren,

Marilyn left a rich imprint on the children of Arizona. She taught at
Isaac Junior High and Bourgade High School in Phoenix, Lake Havasu
Junior High, and Kingman elementary and middle schools. Marilyn was
tenderly known as “grandma” while principal of Cerbat Elementary
School. Later she worked as the principal for Saint Mary’s Catholic
School in Flagstaff. Marilyn was deeply involved at Saint Mary’s
Catholic Church and the Kathryn Heidenreich senior center. She also
served several years on the governor’s council for the aging.
Marilyn enjoyed sewing, embroidery, crafting, hunting and fishing. One
of her early shooting achievements included being the first woman to
shoot 25/25 straight in trap at the LHC sportsman’s club. She also
enjoyed raising, training and showing Weimaraner’s in her younger
adult years. She will be deeply missed by all.
Funeral services were held at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church on
