Cynthia “Cindy” Ann Johnson began her earthly journey on December 13, 1957. She was the second born child, and only daughter of Robert and Daisy Crews. They raised her to love and serve God. Cindy worked at JCPenney, provided childcare and retired from the Grandview school district after 20 years of service. Her years at the Grandview school district gifted her many close friends.
On June 28, 1980, Cindy married the love of her life, Johnny Mikle Johnson. They raised their three children – Toby (younger years known as Kenny Rogers), Candace and Ashley in the Kansas City, MO area. Cindy was heartbroken when Mike was suddenly taken from this life 19 years ago. There were not many days that she would go without speaking of him. She stayed strong in her faith and continued to raise their children to serve God, while battling different cancers and numerous other health conditions.
Cindy loved her family and friends fiercely but loved her grandchildren the most and would talk about them every chance she got. She did not believe in thanking anyone for anything they had done for her through a simple call or text. If you did something for Cindy, great or small, you received a big announcement on Facebook! Cindy loved to look good and enjoyed buying clothing and accessories. No matter how her physical body felt, if she was getting out of the house, she was dressing nice and her shoes and purse were going to match.
On March 6, 2022, Cindy gained her heavenly reward and has been reunited with her husband, Mike, her parents, Robert and Daisy Crews and brother Steve. She has joined a host of family including Johnny & Glenda Johnson and Scott Johnson.
Cindy leaves behind, to mourn her loss, her children Toby & Brooklyn Johnson of Peculiar, MO, Candace Johnson of Springfield, MO and Ashley & Matt Steel of Springfield, MO. The joys of Cindy’s life were her grandchildren Brody, Baylee and Titus. She leaves her brothers Rick and Rob, sisters Trisha Moore and Julie Gregg, her nephews Cody, Bobby and Patrick and their families, along with many other family and friends.
Cindy was a true example of 2 Timothy 4:7 – I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Cindy fought health conditions for 19 years with grace, she finished the race and her faith never wavered!
The family will receive friends from 10AM to 11AM on Tuesday, March 15, 2022, at Langsford Funeral Home in Lee’s Summit, MO. The Celebration of Life service will begin at 11AM. Final resting will be at Lee’s Summit Historical Cemetery next to her “sweetie”.
