Roseanna Mae Johnson
May 19, 1928 – December 4, 2018

It is with great sadness we announce that Roseanna Mae Gaylord Johnson, born May 19, 1928 in Shoshoni, Wyoming, passed from her life here on earth Tuesday night, December 4, 2018 about 9:30 pm in San Antonio, Texas. The very best mother, grandma, and friend in the whole world is flying free from dementia, whole, and happy with her Lord and Savior. We thank God for His great love and mercy!
Roseanna brought such amazing laughter, life, fun, devotion, and unending, amazing love to her whole family: her son Dana Johnson of Del City, Oklahoma, and her daughter Janet Johnson O’Day (Mike) of Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas. The pride and joy of her life were her 3 granddaughters Kristy Johnson Moss (Jim) of Yangon, Myanmar; Lindsay O’Day of Boerne, Texas, and Shannon O'Day of Castroville, Texas, who lived knowing they were greatly loved and spoiled with delight! They treasure memories of the fun times spent with her! She treasured her wonderful Wyoming family, and friends from all over. She loved adventure, would try anything once, and lived with such zest for exploring and learning. She was blessed to travel the world and see so many amazing places she had always read about and dreamed of seeing. Her most beloved place of all though was Lander, Wyoming, where her cremains will be interred at a later date.

Roseanna was preceded in death by her parents Spencer and Lillian (Thompson) Gaylord; 4 siblings Bobby, Jim, Bruce, and Jean; her stillborn son Timothy; and her former husband and friend Carroll Johnson, whom she cared for the last 8 years of his life. She is survived by her son, daughter, beloved granddaughters, one sister Cathy Gaylord Gustin of Lander, Wyoming, and was a favorite aunt to numerous beloved nieces and nephews who will miss the joy and fun she brought to family gatherings.

We also thank the wonderful, caring staff for the loving care received at Heritage Place Boerne, Kendall House Boerne, and the memory care unit at the Isle of Watercrest at Dominion.

We will celebrate Roseanna’s life with a Memorial Service on Monday, December 17, 2018 at 10:30 am at First United Methodist Church, 205 James Street, Boerne, Texas, followed by a get together in the Family Life Center. Roseanna always wanted a celebration, not sadness, so we ask that you wear happy colors and help us celebrate her beautiful life. As an artist, she LOVED color and beauty! Fly high, Roseanna! We love you so! ❤️❤️❤️
