Shirley Jean Johnston

Shirley Jean Johnston, 82, passed away Jan. 14, 2013, at Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs, CO. Shirley was born March 25, 1930, in Yonkers, New York, to John and Martha Krug.

Shirley is survived by her son John Douglas (Sara) Morrison; daughters Nancy Lynn (Bruce) Bowen and Beth (Ken) Redding; brother Maynard Webster Krug; and granddaughter Laura Johnston. Shirley will be dearly missed by her family and friends. She was talented in diverse ways – an artist, a musician, and a writer.
