Sharon Jo Johnson

February 15, 1947June 26, 2020

Sharon J Johnson – born in Miami, AZ on Feb. 15, 1947 passed away June 26, 2020. Sharon was the only child to Jo and Gerald Snow and grew up in Phoenix. She loved growing up here in the desert and had many wonderful and colorful stories about horseback riding and the dirt roads such as Shea Blvd. Later, her mother remarried, giving her two wonderful step-dads; Truman Sullins and then later Selden Kent.

She was preceded in death by her parents, and her cherished son, Taylor Allen Gray Johnson (a motorcycle accident at age 32). She is survived by the love of her life, her loving husband of 25 years, Reid S. Johnson and her much-loved children Madesan (19), Dawson (19), and Harrison (14) and a precious granddaughter Chloe (5). And of course, we can’t forget all of her animals – Sharon loved animals and had many cats, dogs, turtles, birds, hamsters, fish (and you name it) throughout her life. Animals were a great source of joy for Sharon.

Sharon has been battling the effects of a brain injury from a fall in her kitchen many years earlier, but more recently, ended up succumbing to COVID-19. Sharon was known for her love of Bavarian cream donuts and then at the end of the day - margaritas & tacos at Ajo Als.

She will always be remembered for her beautiful smiling eyes, her kindness, and always laughing at everyone’s jokes - and she was dearly loved by many, many friends. Due to the COVID restrictions we will not be having a service, but will be having a celebration of life at a later date.

I was raised with Sharon when I lived with her mom Josephine and my grandfather Truman Sullins in the 1960's. Sharon was always just beautiful to me. My heart-felt condolences to Sharon's husband Reid and their three beautiful children.

Sharon was my cousin. I have pics from the time we were small until family reunions as adults. She was always sweet, charming and a lovely person. Although we had not seen each other in a number of years, I am so sorry for her loss. With sympathy, Jane Bohme Hale
