Johnson

March 13, 2013

Edna Mae Johnson died Wednesday at Avon Health and Rehabilitation.

Born Sept. 19, 1923, in Somerset, Ky., she was the second of 10 children born to the late Eva and Amos Chaney. Her parents were involved in farming and her father was a Baptist minister.

She married Russell B. Burch on Jan. 27, 1945, in Butte, Mont., where they resided for a short time before moving to Caldwell, Idaho. In 1959, they moved to Indianapolis and she worked for Emroe Sporting Goods and the C.H. Ellis Company. The couple bought a small campground close to Lake Monroe, where they enjoyed a semi-retired life of running their campground and fishing. They particularly enjoyed taking rides on their pontoon boat and entertaining their grandchildren. In 1988, they sold the campground and moved to Lake Wales, Fla.

Mr. Burch died Nov. 3, 1989, and Mrs. Burch then returned to Indiana.

On Jan. 1, 1991, she married William Johnson and they lived in Patricksburg. When he died in March 2001, she moved to Brownsburg where she and her younger sister, Josephine Preston, purchased a condominium. Due to declining health, the condominium was sold and Mrs. Johnson moved into Avon Health and Rehabilitation.

She was a member of Order of Eastern Star and Hope Community Church in Brownsburg.

Survivors include a son, Phillip R. Burch of Boise, Idaho; a daughter, Judy Burch Wolny of Brownsburg; a brother, Gordon Chaney; sisters Josephine Preston, Pauline Dodd, Christine Hail, and Shirley Meece; and grandchildren Russell J. Burch, Andy Burch, Heather Renter, and Jennifer McKane.  

In addition to her parents and husbands, she was preceded in death by a sister, Beverly Joyce Chaney, and brothers Amos, William, and Eugene Chaney.

Services are noon Monday at Lake Cumberland Funeral Home in Somerset, Ky. Interment will be at Wesley Chapel Cemetery in Somerset, next to her first husband.

Calling is from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at Matthews Mortuary in Brownsburg and from 10 a.m. to noon Monday at Lake Cumberland Funeral Home.

Memorials may be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.
