Lynn Ann Johnson, age 38, entered eternal rest, surrounded by her loving family, Sunday, April 2, 2017 from complications of M.S.
Lynn was born November 15, 1978, in Marquette, a daughter of Denis Leigh and Paula JoAnne (Mitchell) Johnson, and was a lifelong area resident. She was raised in Harvey and was a 1997 graduate of Marquette Senior High School. Following graduation, she enrolled NMU’s Jacobetti Skill Center where she pursued a course in cosmetology, receiving a degree in manicuring in 1998. Lynn was a camper at the Bay Cliff Health Camp in Big Bay for 15 years, she was chosen “Camper of the Year” her last year at Bay Cliff. With her quick smile, easy going and fun personality, she was a delight to be with. She possessed a great sense of humor, was funny, and loved to tease. She never complained. Lynn was a member of St. Louis the King Catholic Church in Harvey. In her leisure, she enjoyed camping, going to camp, fishing, bowling, watching movies, her soaps, and the Golden Girls. Lynn was the March of Dimes poster child for Marquette County which gave her the opportunity to meet the NMU hockey players. She became a huge fan of the NMU Wildcat Hockey team and was a season ticket holder for over 20 years, even being invited into the locker room on many occasions. Win or lose, Lynn was their number one fan. Lynn also loved watching the ore boats coming in and going out on Lake Superior, and spending time with her family and canine pals, Raz and Rusti.
Lynn was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Art and Rita Mitchell and paternal grandmother, Edna Jean Johnson; uncles, Peter Mitchell and Gary Venturtao; aunt, Liz Venturtao; and cousin, Dorothy Venturtao.
Lynn is survived by her parents, Denis and Paula Johnson; loving sister, Lisa and brother-in-law, Bill Geller; adored nephew and niece, Jacob and JoAnne Geller; special aunts and uncles, Cliff and Deb Beek, Patti and Mark Johnson; uncles, John (Jo) Venturtao, Joseph Venturtao, Jim (Patty) Johnson, Robert (Dawne) Johnson; aunts, Terry (David) Paradise, Betsy Mitchell, and Fairy Venturtao; special cousins, Aaron Beek and Dawn Schumitsch. Lynn had numerous cousins and friends, much too many to mention everyone.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 am Wednesday morning with Rev. Glenn Theoret, pastor, as celebrant. A reception will follow in Father Gauthier Hall. ‘GO CATS’
