MISHAWAKA — Cindy L. Johnson, 69, of Mishawaka, passed away Wednesday, August 21, 2019, at Elkhart General Hospital.

She was born Sept. 15, 1949, in Elkhart, to the late Robert and Mary (Shellenberger) Green.

On June 6, 1970, she married David E. Johnson; he survives along with two children, Steven (Meg Truesdell) Johnson and Kathryn (Kyle) Umbarger; four grandchildren, Laura Johnson, Kate Johnson, Victoria Umbarger and Benjamin Umbarger; and one sister, Pamela (Dennis) Lynch.

Cindy graduated in 1967 from Elkhart High School, retired from Beacon Health Services in 2016 after more than 20 years of service, and was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church.

She enjoyed gardening and keeping up her home.

Cindy never met a stranger and once you were her friend you remained that way for life.

Most dear to her heart were her grandchildren, who will truly miss her.

In lieu of flowers, please send memorial contributions to St. Joseph County Humane Society or the Pet Refuge.

Elkhart Cremation Services has been entrusted with the arrangements.
