Obituary of Venora Lindsey Johnson


Venora Lindsey Johnson, 98, of Middleton, Idaho, passed away on January 7th, 2019 in Boise, Idaho.


Venora Johnson was born in Harrison County on March 10, 1920.  On February 9th 1961, Venora married Harold Johnson in Gresham Oregon.  Harold had one daughter, Beverly Johnson with Elaine Johnson who passed away February 9th, 1961.  Venora raised Beverly as her own with an abundance of love and cherished memories.

In 1983, her grandson, John Ashman, was born.  She adored John and in her eyes he could do no wrong. She spent countless hours playing with him and enjoyed it as much as he did.

Venora had an amazing life.  She welded in the shipyards, owned a beauty salon, and was a master woodworker.  She enjoyed genealogy and researched her family history for 8 years.  She compiled her research and authored a book on that history.

She will be deeply missed – her memories will last forever.


Venora is preceded in death by her parents Roy and Ruth Lindsey, husband Harold Johnson, and one sister Elaine Lindsey Johnson.

Venora is survived by her daughter Beverly Johnson and her husband Michael Gross, grandson John Ashman and his wife Chelsie Ashman, and one brother Dwight Lindsey.

Graveside services will be held at 11:00am Friday, January 11, 2019 at Middleton Cemetery.  Arrangements are by Flahiff Funeral Chapel.
