Obituary

Eugenia Florence Johnson, 88, of Rowlett, Texas was born on June 20, 1934 and passed peacefully on June 20, 2022. Raised in Renovo, her parents, Florence (Eckel) and Charles H. Johnson preceded her to the Hereafter. Many in Renovo knew her as Jean, Jeannie or Peachie. To her loving family, she was known as Mom, Momma, Grammy, Grammy Kitty, GiGi and Sissy. Jean is survived by her beloved daughters, Justine (“Tink”, deceased) Cummings, Cynthia (David) Stewart, Gale (Jerry, deceased) Roberge; her brother Charles “Charlie” (Dawn) Johnson II; grandchildren Gary (Lisa) Cummings, Jeffery (Amanda) Cummings, Jessica Cummings, Heather (Marco) Gargano, April (Ress) Walker, Dave (Nika) Stewart, Paxton (Miranda) Eakin, Collin Roberge, Tyler Eakin; 15 great grandchildren; 3 nieces, 2 nephews and several great nieces and nephews.

Jean was a 1952 graduate of Renovo High School. Before moving from Renovo, she was a member of the Zion Lutheran Church and sometimes played the pipe organ for Sunday services and the piano for choir practices. She made a career as a cook and restaurant manager prior to becoming a nursing aide and in-home caregiver. After retiring, she lived in Emporium, PA for several years and then moved to Texas with her youngest daughter Gale, often visiting her middle daughter Cynthia and extended family in both Virginia Beach and Florida. Jean was thrilled to visit Renovo a few years ago and spend time there with her oldest daughter, Justine.

She was a beautiful pianist and a piano was always in her home! She loved to cook, watch birds and tend to her garden of vegetables, hostas and roses. She always had a colorful story of her childhood and upbringing in Renovo! While she loved being anywhere with her family, her heart belonged to the mountains of Pennsylvania with the echo of a distant train whistle.

A Celebration of Life will be held in late August in Renovo. Our family welcomes you to join us at that time to share your stories, old photos and fond memories! Details will be forthcoming.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in her name to The Greater Renovo Area Heritage Park Association, 530 Erie Avenue, Renovo, PA 17764 or to Friends of Rowlett Animals, 3905 Melcer Drive, Building 5, #504, Rowlett, TX 75088 or to the charity of your choice.

    My thoughts and prayers for strength and peace for your family. I knew her as,”Peachy!!”. She used to go to Bitumen to visit my Aunt Agnes Machak, which I never knew. I got to know her when she lived in Emporium. A mutual friend, Gene Palmer, is the one that got us connected. To say the least, we connected right away and formed a bond. It was then that she informed me that we were related and she sent me information. She was coming out to our camp, but she moved to Texas before she got out there. We talked on the phone for at least an hour every time, most of the time more. I only wish I had known her earlier and we could have talked longer. She was such a special person!! I thought something happened since there were no more phone calls, no text after birthday wishes!! I hope she has met up with family & friends and is happy to see them all! ♥️❤️ She will be missed!! ♥️♥️

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
