Life Story / Obituary


Patricia “Pat” June (Young) Johnson, 84 of Traverse City went home to be with Jesus, the morning of October 10th, 2018. Pat was born in Wayne County, Michigan on August 24, 1934. Her parents were the late Nelson E. and Myrtle Young. Pat married Gary C. Johnson on October 30, 1957. She grew up in Bay City, Michigan and graduated from Handy High School.

Pat was very kind hearted, she always accepted people for who they were and would look for the good in people.

She used to love to go out dancing with her husband, was on a bowling league, did ceramics, enjoyed sewing with her friend when her daughters were very young, was an avid reader. Most sunny days you could find her outside sitting in her chair reading a book. She loved having friends and family over and making them lunch and dinner, she belonged to a bunco club, liked going to church, potlucks, shopping, out to eat, enjoyed country and worship music, especially hymns.

She had worked as a nurse assistant at Mercy hospital in Bay City, and then at Munson hospital in Traverse City until she had children. She then became a stay at home mom to both her daughters and didn’t go back to work until they were both in school. She retired from Birchwood nursing home where she made many friends.

She is survived by daughters, Louann Johnson and Holly (Ray) Davis, grandchildren Tayler Davis, Zachariah Davis, Raymond Davis Jr, Gary Sladek and her great grandson Asher Sladek.

Pat is preceded in death by her husband Gary, her granddaughter Elizabeth Davis, her siblings, her parents, her mother and father in law and son in law.
