Iva R. Johnson

Johnson_Iva2Iva R. Johnson, 88, of Brunswick, passed away peacefully at her home, to be with her Lord, Saturday, August 30, 2014, surrounded by her loving family. Iva was born in Sweetwater, Tennessee September 14, 1925, to the late Lee and Nancy Miser.

She moved with her husband and daughters to Cleveland in 1957 and resided in Brunswick for the past 20 years. She was a wonderfully loving wife to her husband, Clarence, of 68 years.

Her girls say that she loved everyone unconditionally, but always with the teaching of responsibilities in life, which has guided them always. Because of her love and teachings, when the family increased in size “10 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren” her love and guidance has been passed on to them.

She always showed her love for them by cooking each and every weekend “no matter how many came”…she fed them all with love and enjoyed every moment with them. (Her husband nicknamed her “Cookie The Cook” because of this!)

She is survived by her husband, Clarence; daughters, Patricia Noga and Wanda Vasil and sister, Betty Roberts.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Peggy Lee Ransom in 2013; brothers, Ernest and Bobby and sisters, Molly and Goldie.

Iva’s family and friends may gather Tuesday, September 2, 2014, at Noon, with the funeral service at 1 P.M., at the Bauer Funeral Home, 2089 Columbia Road, Valley City. Intermentwill be at Sunset Memorial Park, North Olmsted.
