Eleanor Johnson

Eleanor Johnson A life journey began for Eleanor Johnson, who was born in LaVeta, Colorado May 3,1924 to Mr. and Mrs. Eufracio Lucero. Early in her life the family moved to Riverton, Wyoming where she met and married Lester Johnson in August 1942. They operated a small irrigated farm near Riverton and enjoyed the rural life until the two of them sensed God's call to pastoral ministry which gave them opportunities to present the Gospel in many churches in a number of states. They came to Kennewick in 1990 and used the home on Clearwater as a base to be ''Interim'' workers in churches throughout the Midwest. Surgery in late May failed to correct her heart condition, and she finished her earthly journey June 8, 2002 in Kadlec Hospital in Richland, W A. She was a favorite of the nursing staff there. Her spiritual journey started in Riverton, Wyoming where she confessed Christ as Savior with her husband. She was active throughout her life as a Sunday School teacher and spiritual counselor until her journey ended with her answer to Jesus' call to come home to glory. Her last church home was College View Baptist Church in Pasco, Washington, but her last ministry was with her husband Lester at First Baptist Church of Warden, Washington. She is survived by her husband, Lester Johnson of Kennewick, and would have celebrated 60 years of marriage in August 2002. She is also survived by sons Henry Johnson Sandy, of Kennewick; David Johnson Kathy, of St. Charles, Missouri; Michael Johnson Elaine of Coeur d' Alene, Idaho; six grandchildren and six great grandchildren who have been encouraged by her Christian care. A son, Larry Dean Johnson and a daughter Gloria Blanton preceded her in death. She was the object of much care and prayer by her Kadlec caregivers and friends and relatives from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans. A victory memorial celebration will be conducted at College View Baptist Church in Pasco Washington at 11:00 A.M. Saturday, June lSth officiated by Pastor Roger Herndon and Pastor Keith Banta. An inurnment is planned in Mt. Tahoma National Cemetery, Kent, Washington. The family requests that no flowers be given, but memorials may be given for a favorite ministry, the Child Evangelism Fellowship of Tri-Cities, or for the Youth project of College View Baptist Church.
