Marlys M. Johnson, 88, of Vienna, Ohio passed on February 1, 2019 at Trumbull Memorial Hospital. She was born March 3, 1930 in Elgin, North Dakota, a daughter of the late Waldemar and Geraldine "Gertrude" (Baker) Mehl. On November 8, 1952, Marlys married Fred W. Johnson and they spent the next 54 years happily together until his passing on June 24, 2007.

Marlys graduated from Fowler High School. Throughout her life Marlys worked many different jobs, beginning as a nurses aide at St. Elizabeth Hospital. After starting her family she began working in retail, initially for Montgomery Ward, then Sears and Roebuck, and eventually with Kohls. Throughout all of this she helped her husband and sons run Blossom Gardens Greenhouse, which was originally called Johnson and Sons Greenhouse and Nursery in Vienna. They owned and operated the greenhouse from 1945 until 2005.

When she wasn't fulfilling one of these roles, Marlys loved to craft, quilt, bake, and cook using her kitchen gadgets she would get from HSN. Most of all she loved the summers spent at the family home in Canada, fishing, hiking and camping. These memories will be cherished by her family forever.

Left to cherish her memories are her children, Cheryll (Bob) Roliff, Daniel (Barbara) Johnson, Bruce Johnson, Brian (Shannon) Johnson, daughter-in-law, Jen Johnson, grandchildren; Nicholas Johnson, Michael Johnson, Anthony Dunn, Brandon Dunn, Danielle Dunn, Chelsea Johnson, Mariah Johnson, Jack Rolliff, Cheyanne Johnson, Zachary Johnson, Kaylynn Smith, Brooklynn Smith, Hallie Johnson, Devan Smith, and Skylynn Smith as well as her great-grandchildren, Kennedy Parmenter, Liam Spears and Joselyn Dunn. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Fred W. Johnson, son, Fred Johnson, 2 sisters and 3 brothers and her grandson, Cody W. Johnson.
