Obituary for Evelyn Bernice Johanson

May 20, 1935 - April 9, 2021
Strongsville, Ohio | Age 85

Loving Wife, Mother, and Grandmother


On April 9, Evelyn Bernice Johanson, loving wife, mother of four children, and grandmother to eight, passed away at age 85.

Evelyn was born on May 20, 1935, in Cleveland, OH to Bernice and William Verhun. She studied medical technology and worked at the Ohio State University Research Center in Columbus, OH. On December 28, 1957, she married "The Swede" Frederic R. Johanson. Evelyn had a passion for reading and believed books should not be kept but should be passed along. She also loved gardening and flowers, but most of all, she loved to get together to chat. Her coffee pot was always on, and the door was always open.

Evelyn was preceded in death by her parents and siblings, Theodore (Jean), Kenneth (Carol), and Arlene. She is survived by her children and grandchildren: William Johanson (wife JoMarie, children Abigail and Sara); Sandra Midea (husband Tony, children Mitchell and Brett); Patricia "Monica" Fletcher (husband Jim "Fletch", children Alexandra and Julianna); and, Katherine Fuller (husband Barry, children Heather and Melody), a sister-in-law, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends too numerous to list but not forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to The American Lung Association or a charity of your choice.
