April 14, 1940 – July 21, 2020
The family regrets to announce the passing of Lil Johnson in Golden, BC on Tuesday July 21, 2020.
Lil was born in Invermere BC on April 14, 1940 to Otto and Jean Malberg of Brisco, BC. She grew up at the family home in Brisco with her three brothers and sister.
In 1958 Lil married the love of her life Delbert Johnson. They lived in Edgewater and started their family in 1961 when Donna was born and then Darrell. In 1964 the family packed up and moved to Golden, BC.
In 1967 another daughter Sherry, was born making the family complete. Five years later in 1972, they moved to their forever home in Nicholson. Lil was passionate about her beautiful yard and impressive garden. Lil loved to bake as much as the family loved to eat it. Some favourites were her bread, buns and gumdrop cookies.
Lil was predeceased by her brother Kenny, father Otto, Mother Jean, her husband Delbert and her brother Gunnar. Lil is survived by her children Donna (Mark Lawrence), Darrell (Wanda), Sherry (Rene Gottler) grandchildren Traci (Rob), Craig, Jordan (Alysha), Dallas (Andy), Larisa and Zara, and five great-grandchildren. Lil is also survived by her sister Eva, brother Nils (Lois) and sister in law Shirley and many nieces, nephews and friends. We will all miss her dearly.
The family would like to thank Dr. Chiles and all the wonderful staff at The Golden and District Hospital for their compassionate care of Lil in her final days.
Due to the present circumstances, there was a small graveside service held for family.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Friends of Golden and District Hospital 13 – 24 Ave N Cranbrook, BC V1C 3H9.
