Obituary: Marianna R. Johnson
A memorial service will be held next month.
Marianna R. Johnson (nee Robson), 84, a longtime Haddonfield resident died on Jan. 22 in the Cadbury development in Cherry Hill.
She was the wife of the late Edward; loving mother of Bartram (Patricia Walsh) of Voorhees, Andrew of Haddonfield and Patricia McDonnell (Kevin) of Linwood; dear grandmother of Rachel and Hannah Johnson-Walsh and William and Caitlin McDonnell; beloved sister of George M. Robson Jr. (Brooke) of CA.
Mrs. Johnson graduated from Haddonfield Memorial High School in 1946 and Randolph Macon Women’s College in 1950. After raising her children, she began a successful career in tax accounting with H&R Block, and then joined the IRS in Camden, first in taxpayer service and later as an auditor. She grew up and lived much of her adult life in a house in Haddonfield which was built by her great-grandparents. She loved the ocean, and in her youth she spent many happy summers on Long Beach Island. She enjoyed a wide range of music, including classical (she was a long-time subscriber to the Philadelphia Orchestra); old-time “mountain music”, which reminded her of family ties in the south; and classic rock from the fifties, sixties, and seventies. She was also an avid bridge player and traveled extensively after her retirement.
Mrs. Johnson’s family will receive friends on Saturday, March 9, from 10 to 10:45 a.m., at the First Presbyterian Church of Haddonfield, 20 E. Kings Highway, Haddonfield, NJ 08033; where her memorial service will follow at 11 a.m. Interment, private.
Memorial donations may be made in Mrs. Johnson’s name to the church at the above address, where she had been a lifelong active member. Arrangements by Kain-Murphy Funeral Services of Haddonfield.
