Jeanne L. (Raymond) Johnson, 99, of Manchester New Hampshire died March 13, 2021 at CMC.
Born in Manchester, NH on November 30, 1921, she was the daughter of Arthur and Cora (Allard) Raymond.
She married her true love Henry Johnson and had 3 wonderful children.
Jeanne was a longtime communicant of St. Pius X Church, a charter member of the parish, and for years dedicated her time to the Women's Guild and the church's choir.
Jeanne was a happy soul, she had a love for life and was always smiling. she surrounded herself with those things she loved most which included dancing, gardening, singing, going to church, but most of all spending time chatting with friends and family.
Prior to retirement in 1984, she had worked as a lead mender for Pandora Industries for 40 years. It was during this time she caught the travel bug and went on European adventures to see what life outside of Manchester looked like.
As Jeanne got on in years she slowed her traveling adventures and instead became a snow bird just venturing to Florida, to spend winters with her loving granddaughter Cindy and her husband Bo.
Jeanne's life was long and she knew love and she knew heartache, but what she will be remembered for most is that she knew how to keep on living. Smile and take each new day as a blessing.
She was predeceased by her husband, Henry Johnson in 1960, her daughter Jeanne H. Masson in 1996, son Edward H. Johnson in 2018, and many brothers and sisters.
Jeanne was survived by her daughter Joan Robinson and husband Edward, her loving grandchildren Brian Dionne, Cindy Long (Clifton), Vicki Isabelle (Edward), Bj Masson - Mumford (Brian), Michael Robinson (Stephanie ), Jonathan Johnson (Ashley ), and Candice Masson. She was also a Great Nana to twelve great-grand children and one great-great grandchild. She is also survived by brother Richard Raymond of Manchester, her son-in-law Richard Masson and many nephews and nieces.
