Cynthia S. “Cyndi” Johnson
October 5, 1953 - October 20, 2018
Cynthia S. “Cyndi” Johnson, age 65, of New Castle, DE passed away suddenly on Saturday, October 20, 2018, at her home.
Born in Chester, Pennsylvania, Cyndi was fortunate to have loving parents who gave her a great start in life. She was a graduate of Penncrest High School in Media, PA and had worked for Crozer Hospital prior to her becoming disabled.
The biggest joy in Cyndi’s life was her family and the most important job she felt she had was becoming the type of mother to her children that her mother was to her. In her leisure time, Cyndi loved listening to and appreciating all kinds of music, but especially, The Beatles and Ozzy Osbourne, while caring for her African Violets and other houseplants. She also loved traveling and collecting Mickey Mouse memorabilia, and loved to try and help others anyway she could.
Cyndi was preceded in death by her father, Milton J. Derrickson; the love of her life and husband of 40 years, Michael D. Johnson Sr.; and nephew, Michael K. Trageser. She is survived and will be greatly missed by her mother, Dolores J. Derrickson of Media, PA; children, Cathy D. Scott of New Jersey, Michael D. Johnson Jr. of Wilmington and Tara L. Johnson of New Castle, with whom she lived; sisters, Robyn A. Shannon of Havertown, PA and Nora J. (John) Clement of Media, PA; granddaughter and light of her life, Gina M. Jannuzzio of New Castle; niece Karyn A. Beck of Upper Chichester, PA; nephews, Jesse N. Clement and Patrick J. Clement of Media, PA; as well as numerous extended family members and devoted friends.
Services will be held privately.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Cyndi’s name to the American Lung Association, 630 Churchman’s Road, Suite 202, Newark, DE 19702.
