CANFIELD – Barbara Ann “Barb” Johnson, 76, passed away peacefully on January 28, 2023 at the Hospice House.

Barb was born March 11, 1946 in Youngstown, a daughter of the late Robert and Mae (Moorhead) Johnson of Struthers. She was a 1964 graduate of Struthers High School, where she was a member of the Fidelis Service Club. She worked at Penner Furniture in Youngstown, and then at Mahoning National Bank for 25 years, until she retired on medical disability. Barb was a member of Evangel Baptist Church in Boardman, and a past member of the VASA Club.

Barb battled MS for over 50 years yet fought courageously to remain active despite her diagnosis. She loved watching sports and was an avid Indians, Browns, Ohio State and YSU fan. She also attended many activities involving her nieces and nephews, from little league, dance recitals, thorough their college sports. Barb loved to travel as much as she could and was very competitive. She loved playing card games and other games with her family & friends. She spent the last 4 years of her life at Wickshire Assisted Living in Poland, where she made many friends and great memories.

She will be dearly missed by her sister, Ruth Hughes, brothers, Roy (Sue) Johnson, Dr. Bob (Jan) Johnson of Canfield, sister-in-law, Dee Johnson, and 12 nieces and nephews.   

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her siblings, Roberta Luptak and William Johnson, best friend, Sally Wrobel, along with brothers-in-law Roger Hughes and Sam Luptak, Sr.
