June Johnson (Philips ) was born in Merthyr Tydfil Wales, UK on June 14, 1928 Merthyr is an old welch word for a Martyr and Tydfil is thought to be a princess murdered centuries ago by pagans. Mom was a demure quiet woman whom a lot of times you wouldn't even know if she was in the room......... wait a minute, wrong bio..... Mom was actually a very strong and a generous woman. But "she didn't suffer fools gladly" If she disagreed with you on any matter, she would let you know. For over twenty years, when I lived in Paradise, CA, I called her every Sunday morning at 8:30. We laughed and cried over life events, but I loved it. As her dementia increased we put her in a very nice assisted living home in Ferndale, where she was well cared for until she died. It makes me so sad when covid hit none of her kids could visit her like we wanted to. We had to see her through a window, and with her bad hearing it was hard for her and for all of us.
Mom lived about 8 years after the love of her life, Malcolm Johnson died, so I am at least happy she is at peace now.
