Elizabeth B. "Betty" Johnson\n\n\nMy name is Elizabeth Johnson. I went home to be with my Lord and Savior on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 after fighting bravely with ALS for several years.\n\n\nI was born on Sugar Hill, near Watkins Glen on July 2, 1932. My parents were Herbert and Dorothy (Allen) Oliver and I was one of their seven children. I attended school in Watkins Glen up to the 11th grade before we moved to Corning, so I graduated in 1950 from Northside High School. Following graduation, I worked in the bookkeeping department at Ingersoll Rand before I married Myron Johnson, the love of my life, on June 6, 1953 in Corning. As a manager for Glass Menagerie and Yuletide Treasures I truly loved working on Market Street. Even after retirement, they called me back in to help train others. In my spare time, my interests were playing crazy bridge, reading, gardening, especially growing flowers, and singing with my sister Ella. I also was a member of Christian Women's Club.\n\n\nI loved my Lord and tried to serve Him in many different ways. I have been a member of Victory Highway Wesleyan Church for over 40 years, and served others by being a Sunday School teacher, a registrar, and being active in several home groups. Because we love serving others, Myron and I volunteered at Corning Christian Academy in the library and cafeteria. I enjoyed the interaction with the students and faculty very much. \n\n\nMy family includes my husband, Reverend Myron Johnson; two daughters, Susan (Keith) VanDeventer of Edgewood, NM and Cheryl (Rick) Shuck of Hellertown, PA; a son, Michael Johnson of Corning; sisters, Dorothy (Duane) Hall of Binghamton, Marian Nemo of Indianapolis, IN, and Ella (Robert) Yatteau of East Bloomfield, NY; brother, Kenneth (Joyce) Oliver of Bath; six grandchildren, Terralynn, Andrew, Matthew, Jeremiah, Brandon, Joshua; many nieces and nephews. My sister, Marleah Butler and my brother, Carl Oliver preceded me in death.\n\n\nYou are invited to visit with my family and share the good times with them on Saturday, March 8th from 11 until 2 PM at Victory Highway Wesleyan Church, 150 Victory Highway in Painted Post where my funeral services will follow at 2:00 PM with Pastor Steve McEuen officiating. Burial will be in Fairview Cemetery.\n\n\nBecause of my love for the school, please send donations to Corning Christian Academy, 11 Aisne Street, Corning, NY 14830 in memory of me.\n\n\nMy family has entrusted my care to Haughey Funeral Home, Inc.
