Janet's Story

Text size

Janet LaVerne Johnson, 86, entered her heavenly reward on Jan. 21, 2018, after an extended illness. She passed away at home, surrounded by her loving family. Formerly a resident of Fairfield Glade, LaVerne moved to Adamstown, MD, to live with her daughter and son-in-law after her husband died.
A very much-loved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, LaVerne was pre-deceased by her parents, brother, and husband, G. Robert Johnson.
She is survived by her children, Debra Horton (Keith), Marc Johnson and Pamela Collins (James); grandchildren, Aaron Horton, Anson Horton (Rachel), Jonathan Collins and Daniel Collins (Emily); and great-grandchildren, Ethan, Zachary and Isabel Collins and Leonie Horton.
LaVerne was a loving and caring person with a huge heart who was always thinking of others. An accomplished professional woman, as a registered nurse for over 40 years she received certifications in open-heart surgical care, respiratory care and home and hospice care. Near the end of her career she obtained her BSN and was able to achieve a life-long dream of teaching.
She was also a very creative and artistic person, writing and performing many dramatic monologues and skits that she shared both professionally and with her church family.
A memorial service will be held at St. Pauls Evangelical Lutheran Church in Walkersville, MD, on Saturday, April 7, at 11 a.m. followed by a luncheon. Memorial contributions in LaVerne's name may be made to St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, 14 West Pennsylvania Ave, Walkersville, MD 21793.
