Barbara Jean Johnson died in the early morning hours of July 10, 2019, in Monterey, TN, at the age of 86. She was surrounded by family and her husband of 64 years, Ancel M. Johnson, who was born, and grew up, near Langford.

Barbara Johnson was born on August 19, 1932, in White, SD, and was the daughter of Ed and Gertrude (Davis) Kurtz.

Barbara Johnson is survived by her husband, Ancel, and all six of her children, plus 11 grand-kids, six great-grand kids, and three of her siblings.

In keeping with the wishes of the deceased, the family is not planning any funeral services. Barbara’s request was that people make a donation to their favorite charity instead of sending flowers.

She will be greatly missed by her family and relatives and her kindness, generosity, and sense of humor was a great gift to all of us.
