Mary Johnson

Obituary of Mary Kathryn Johnson

It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to our loving and beautiful mom, Mary Kathryn Johnson. She left this earthly realm on January 21, 2024 at the age of 87. She was born February 28, 1936 in Beggs, OK, to Roy Brooks and Francis Dilks-Brooks. At the age of 4, her family moved to Meridian, CA. She spent her childhood here and attended Sutter High School. At the age of 30, Mary met her soulmate and married Bill Johnson on September 9, 1966. They moved to Live Oak, raised 5 children together, and lived happily in the family home throughout the remainder of their lives. After struggling with chronic health issues, it is in this home, within the warm embrace of her children, that she took her last breath. She was finally at peace. Home is where she wanted to be, with her loving family and sweet dog, Billy. Mary was a quiet and kind woman, a great listener, who could also be feisty! She loved her late husband, Bill, with all her heart and sorely missed him and her late daughter, Suzie. She lovingly embraced her large family. Mary was the ultimate Elvis fan with a home full of Elvis music, gifts and memorabilia. At 60, she even visited Elvis' home at Graceland. She simply enjoyed long drives with Bill, the beauty of the Buttes, fishing, gardening, crossword, and puzzles at the table. Mary is survived by son, Frank Ybarra (Sylvia) and daughters Kathy Fram, Diana Marlowe, Michele Scoggins (Mike), Katrina Johnson and son-in-law Frank Maskovich, 12 grandchildren, and 10 great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her loving husband, William (Bill) Johnson, daughter Corinna (Suzie) Maskovich, and brother, Harold Brooks. She will be forever remembered and forever loved. Graveside services will be held at Live Oak Cemetery, 3545 Pennington Rd., on February 1, 2024 at 11:00 am.
