Kristina Johnson


Kristina Ann Johnson went home to Jesus on Tuesday, April 16, 2013. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Kristina had touched in some way throughout her very memorable life. Kristina’s life would seem to short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of her life far exceeded the quantity of time. Although her words were limited, they could melt the hearts of those around her, and her voice and thoughts could always be heard. Kristina’s perseverance and faith gave her the ability to overcome incredible challenges. With her courage, she led us to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories. She enjoyed school, swimming for the Special Olympics, and texting her sisters and friends. She spent the summers camping with her family, where she loved to fish, ride her bike, and enjoy campfires at night. Although we will miss her every day, she will forever remain in our hearts. Kristina is survived by her loving parents, Greg and Janet Johnson; sisters, Sara Johnson and Erica Johnson; sister and Godmother, Holly Phelps and her husband, Todd and daughters, Brooklynn and Bailee; grandparents, Jim and Eileen Woeste and Rita Anderson; and Godparents, Charley and Gayle Johnson.
