Connie Johnson Obituary, Death – On Tuesday, September 12, 2023, Connie Sander Johnson, who once resided in Sylvania, Ohio, passed away. She was born to LaVerne (Edwards) Sander and William Sander on July 5, 1942 in Toledo, Ohio. Her mother’s maiden name was Edwards. The city of Toledo was Connie’s childhood home, and she attended and graduated from DeVilbiss High School.
Volunteering was something that was very important to Connie, and she did it for a wide variety of causes and organizations, including Nightingales Harvest, Mobile Meals, Flower Hospital Gift Shop, and Baskets of Care. The infectious laughter that was Connie’s signature, her keen sense of humor, and the undying love that she had for her family and friends will be sorely missed.
John Johnson, Connie’s spouse, as well as both of Connie’s parents, passed away before she did. Connie is survived by her devoted and loving daughter Beth Chase, her sisters Bev (Larry) Kahl and Susan (Jim) Sponsler, her nieces and nephew Leanne Dunlap, Jennifer Sponsler, Julie (Dan) Kunos, and Matthew Sponsler, and her great-nieces and great-nephews Quinn and Colin Dunlap, Addie and Ben Kunos, and Meredith and Gwen Sponsler.
