Great Grandma Johnson

Olive Bessie Johnson
August 14, 1917 - March 26, 2010
Josh's great grandmother's funeral was today. She was such an amazing woman and left such a legacy. Grandma Johnson had five daughters, , 22 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren and 11 great-great grandchildren (can't believe that five of those are mine!)

She was such a beautiful person. I have never seen her without a smile on her face. You couldn't talk to her, without walking away with your own smile. She always made you feel so good and so happy.

So many wonderful stories were shared today. She was amazingly strong and such an inspiration to all of us.

Rest in peace, Grandma Johnson. We're so happy that you are reunited with all of your family that passed before you. Give Jared and Mom a big hug and tell them that we think of them often.

And we miss them...every single day.

What a beautiful woman! So great of you to be able to celebrate her life and have all those memories to keep with you forever. It's not very often that kids get to meet the "great" levels of grandparents - it's such a treat.
