Patricia Ann Johnson, 71, went to her heavenly home on November 19th, 2020. She passed away peacefully in her sleep while at home with her great-grandson and caregiver, Micah Medina, at her side. She was preceded in death by her husband Charles Johnson, mother Lillie Spangle, father Roy Spangle, sister Kathryn Lane and her sister Judy Spangle.

She is survived her daughters, Regenia Fajardo, Lorie Fry, Shirley Fry, Barbie Belbot, Cathy Lane, and two sons, Joey Johnson and Jack Johnson. She is also survived by one brother, Frank Spangle, one sister, Diann Reed and her grandchildren, Maranda Spangle, Hillary Evans, Chelsea Penate, Patricia Moore, Rachel Payne, Jolene Belbot, Joe Henry, Tony Henry, Josh Fry, Lorie Fry, Marvin Fry, Melissa Fry, Lisa Combs, Jesse Fry, Daniel Fry, Billy Moore, Danielle Littrell, Ashley Nordmeyer, Timothy Williams, Grace Kirkham, Charlie Johnson, Marie Johnson and Barbara Johnson. She had a total of 49 great grandchildren and 8 great-great-grandchildren.

In early years, Patricia worked at a diner and later joined staff for Rose City Rides as a ‘carney’. She stayed on the road with the carnival for several years until permanently settling in Fort Smith, AR. She began working at Southern Steel and Wire where she was a dedicated employee of 22 years and ultimately retired in 2001. In most recent years, she worked for a home health agency, part time, and very much enjoyed her role as a caregiver.

She loved to dance, travel, watch Westerns, play dominoes and spend time with her family. Some of her favorite foods were chiles rellenos, hog feet, bologna sandwiches and fried fish. She was a huge animal lover and her favorite colors were hunter green and yellow. Patricia always spoke exactly what she thought and you never had to guess how she felt. But, above all, she was of Christian faith and very much loved her lord and savior.

Viewing will be Tuesday November 24th, 2020 at 12 pm with services to immediately follow with Brother Corey Krause officiating.

I first met Pat when I bought my house on N. 31st Street. Over the last 19 years, she has been a good neighbor and I watched her be a loving and dedicated mom and grandmother. My prayers are with your family.
