I was greatly saddened to hear of Mrs Johnson’s passing. As my brother Jonathan remarked, Mr and Mrs Johnson were such an important part of the fabric of our neighbourhood, and they were both always so sweet to us when we were children. It is hard to imagine Fox Avenue without either of them and Mrs Johnson’s absence will be felt profoundly. I would like to extend my sincerest condolences to the family.

I’m so sorry to learn of Mrs. Johnson’s death. I have many fond memories of meeting and chatting with her and Don at our Hockey Canada meetings. She was always so pleasant and kind. They were truly a Hockey Canada couple. Don was certainly a mentor for me. He convinced me to run for the Board at Hockey Canada..
I send my thoughts and prayers..

We are thinking about you in this very sad time. I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Mrs. Johnson, as I have fond memories of her and Mr. Johnson growing up across the street, and I am sure the neighborhood will be less without her, just as it was with the passing of Mr. Johnson. It must be nice for them to be reunited after the time apart.

We offer our sincere condolences, from our family to all of you and yours. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
