Marjorie Johnson

January 3, 1938 — May 22, 2021

Cadiz

Marjorie A. Johnson, 83, of Cadiz, formerly of Smithfield went to be with the Lord on May 22, 2021 at Gables Care Center in Hopedale, Ohio. She was born January 3, 1938 in Cadiz, a daughter of the late Charles W. and Mary G. Rudolph Gross, II.

Marge was family-oriented and made sure every major holiday was spent surrounded by her family in Columbus. She was also an excellent cook and her family always looked forward to her holiday dishes. Marge loved everyone unconditional and was a genuine friend to anyone who crossed her path. Her beauty was inside and out and she had a heart of gold.

In the early years, Marge worked as an assisted manager with Roger’s Jeweler’s at Fort Steuben Mall. The majority of her working years, including retirement, was with the Cardinal Plant (AEP) in Brilliant. She lived in Smithfield and then moved to Cadiz in her later yeas to be closer to her family.

Marge loved playing slot machines at the casino and going to bingo. She kept her colored bingo markers in her car and was ready to go whenever. All she needed was a phone call and she was on her way. One of her biggest joys was spent playing cards at the annual family reunion.

Marjorie was a member of St. James A.M.E. Church in Cadiz where was a trustee, on the Stewardess Board, in the Gospel Expression Choir and the missionary society.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her grandson, Devin Johnson on March 20, 2021 and her sister, Barbara Wheeler.

Surviving are her son, Dennis (Patience Brown) Johnson of Pickerington; a daughter, Denise Johnson of Columbus; 3 granddaughters: Phylicia, Dorraine and Paige; a brother, Charles W. Gross, III; and a sister, Charlotte Jones of Cadiz; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Marge will be truly missed by all.
Death takes the body. God takes the soul. Our mind holds the memories. Our hearts keep the love. Our faith let’s us now we will meet again.
