Beloved wife of the late Victor E. Johnson, whom she married June 14, 1947 and who preceded her in death on February 5, 2008, loving mother of Robert S. (Kate Loritz) Johnson of Naperville, Mark A. (Melinda) Johnson of Colorado Springs, CO and the late Monique M. (Peter M.)

Wanda was a remarkable woman with a fascinating history. She will be missed by her family and all that knew her.

Wanda Jarkiewicz was born in France and spent her childhood in St Marie-aux-Chene. She met Vic in the closing months of World War II, and traveled to Indiana to marry him in 1947. They raised the family as they moved around the Midwest and East Coast for his work. Upon retirement in 1981 they spent many happy years traveling and living in various locations, ending up in Aiken, SC, near their daughter Monique. Vic passed in 2008 and with Monique’s untimely passing earlier this year Wanda moved up to Naperville, IL near Robert.

Services and interment are private.
