Dorothy Marie Johnson June 3, 1925 – August 22, 2014

Dorothy was born June 3, 1925, in Bronx, N.Y. to Agnes and Barnhard Ramberg.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband, John. She is survived by her sisters in New York, Alice, Irene and Joanie as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She is also survived by five children, John and wife Sharon, Sandra and husband Red, Darlene and husband Mike, Debbie and husband Richie and her son Rick. She loved each and every one of her 10 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.

When her children were all in school, Dorothy decided to follow her calling and enrolled in college. She was so proud when she earned her LPN license. She retired after working 22 years at Grays Harbor Community Hospital.

She was active with the Hoquiam VFW and looked forward to Monday night bingo. In her younger years, she enjoyed traveling to the east coast and the Bahamas. Dorothy and John always had good times together planning and driving to Reno for their mini-vacations.

She was strong in her faith and always had enough love and kindness for everyone around her. She will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts.

There will be a private graveside service for her family.

Direction is by the Coleman Mortuary, 422 – 5th Street in Hoquiam.
