“Mom/Moya passed away quietly Sunday night surrounded by family,” she said in what she shared. ” She laughed with her loved ones, including Wordling, during her dying days at home, while the sun shone through the windows “For more than two decades, Johnson represented Ward 3; nevertheless, he was forced to resign from his position last August after receiving an uncurable pancreatic cancer diagnosis.
The local woman spent more than 40 years working outside of council rooms in the healthcare sector, mostly as a nurse and a planner. In the latter months of her time, Johnson’s fellow council members made the decision to recognize her service by deciding to rename Mill Street Parkette in her honor.
