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.

2 Condolences for Cynthia S. “Cyndi” Johnson

  • My dear sweet sister…I can’t believe you are gone from this life and I’ll never see that smiling face again. The only comforting thing is knowing that you are no longer in pain and back with your love. You will always be tucked safely in my heart, and thought of lovingly every time I hear Ozzy or the Beatles on the radio. Love and miss you…but I’ll see you on the other side! Love – your baby (sister)

  • Where do I begin in this message? When I saw you I could not believe how bad you had gotten and I was bawling my eyes out just thinking that you did not have a lot of time left. Then the next day you said your goodbye to me and I did not even know it. I am so sorry that you were in so much pain and suffering, mentally, physically and all around discomfort. Although you are in a better place now I can not help but be selfish and cry for you to come back everyday. You gave me my love for books, an astounding music taste, and memories that can never be forgotten or replaced. I will always remember our tea parties, when we talked about books or a new t.v. show that you liked. I’m also sorry that I was not there as much as I could have been, you were given a new light when we moved into the trailer. Sadly, your body could not handle it anymore and you passed. I love you so so much and I miss you everyday. You always told me sleep with the angels, so in this case i’ll say party with the angels.
    ~Your Geebee
