Catherine "Cathy" Johnson, age 74, passed away on December 23, 2020, in Sturgeon Bay after a battle with dementia. Cathy was born in Flint, MI to Milton and Janet (Scheer) Stratton on August 3, 1946.
Cathy was a nurse with a gift of caring and advocacy for others, a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She loved her husband and was blessed with 47 years of marriage. Cathy became a nurse later in life and was a life-long learner; eventually earning her BSN and Certification in Public Health Nursing, CPH. She would have been thrilled with everyone washing their hands and carrying hand sanitizer!
When Cathy wasn't working, she loved shopping around the Peninsula and going out to dinner with her husband, Bill. She enjoyed traveling to NY and adventures with Adventure Club friends. Cathy believed strongly that women should have access to education and was a devoted member of P.E.O. International.

She is survived by her husband, Bill; daughter, Heidi (Chris) Krueger of Wilton, NY; grandchildren, Gretchen and Connor; sister, Becky (Chuck) Metz of Springfield, Il; her brother-in-law, sister-in-law, nieces and nephews, and friends.
