E.D. Julianna (Julie) Johnson
March 27, 1912 - November 13, 2003
Julianna (Toole) Johnson died comfortably and peacefully at Lake of the Woods District Hospital on November 13th, 2003, age 91 1/2, having lived a full and happy life.
Born March 27, 1912 to George and Eleanor Toole, she was a lifetime citizen of Kenora except for her upper schooling years in Toronto (Havergal College graduate with the Herbert Mason Gold Medal for high character, 1931; University of Toronto B.A. 1934) and Vancouver (Vancouver General Hospital, R.N. 1938). She married Larry P. Johnson (Johnson's Pharmacy, 2nd Street) on June 28th, 1939. They produced 8 children and had a busy, happy 58 years together.
Julianna was predeceased by her parents, her husband L.P. Johnson, brother Laurence (Donalda) Toole, brother Michael Toole, sons Paul Johnson in 1952 and Terry Johnson in 1996, great grandson John Wagenaar in 2001.
She is lovingly remembered and survived by son Larry (Lyn) Johnson, Calgary, daughter-in-law Sue Johnson, Kenora, daughter Eleanor (Bill) Kyle, Kenora, daughter Mary Pat (Rob) Dickson, Winnipeg, son Bill (Janet) Johnson, Winnipeg, daughter Elizabeth/Honey(Tony) Jones, Mississauga, son Kevin (Deborah) Johnson, Calgary; grandchildren from Australia to England to the U.S. and all across Canada - Peter, Tim, Paul & Stephana, Joe & Jaye, Beth, Mark Johnson, Nancy & Kevin Wagenaar, Rob & Melissa Johnson, Larry & Susan Kyle, Shannon & Phil Edgell, Dave & Dominique, Brad Kyle, Chris, Susie & Billy Dickson, Diane & Eric Johnson, Trevor & Evan Jones, Charlie, George, Andy & Julie Johnson; great grand daughters Hailey Johnson, Beth Wagenaar, Ericka Edgell, Olivia Johnson; brother Ned (Anne) Toole, Edmonton; sisters-in-law Evelyn Ingo and Marjorie Merceline Pigott, Vancouver; many kissing cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
Julianna's main focus in life was her large family to whom she devoted vast amounts of time and energy. She was a patient, wonderful, caring mother and grandmother, a whiz at accomplishing many tasks in a calm and unflappable manner, an excellent cookie and pie maker, and a gracious hostess. Over the years her fingers were rarely idle as she created items for the Hospital Gift Shop or knitted goods, especially sweaters, for her own family. She was active in the community being a lifetime member of St. Alban's Cathedral and St. Alban's Altar Guild. Of her many volunteer activities she really enjoyed helping children from KinValley School at their swimming classes in the (now) Lakeside Inn and delivering Meals on Wheels with daughter Eleanor. She was a member of the Ladies Hospital Auxiliary for many years taking a turn as President.
She enjoyed friendships with many people including her square dancing group and her afternoon Bridge Club with whom she played bridge until she was 89. Truly her favourite time of year was summertime when she loved sharing the family island on Lake of the Woods with her ever-growing and changing family. She took great pleasure her whole life long in boat rides, picnics and sunsets on beautiful Lake of the Woods. Julianna will long be remembered as a kind, considerate and dear person.
Immediate cremation has taken place. A Memorial Service and Celebration of her Life will be held at St. Alban's Cathedral, 312 Main St. So., Kenora, on Saturday, November 22nd, 2003 at 1:30 p.m. A reception downstairs in the church hall will follow immediately afterwards.
As an expression of sympathy, those who wish may make a donation in Julianna's memory to the Lake of the Woods C.T. Scanner Fund, 21 Sylvan Street West, Kenora, ON P9N 3W7 or to St. Alban's Cathedral, 312 Main St. So., Kenora ON P9N 1T2, or to a charity of one's choice.

An Irish blessing
May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sunshine warm upon your face
May the rain fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
