Charmaine Johnson

Charmaine Johnson, beloved mother and grandmother, was born May 14, 1940 in Rochester, PA transitioned into the arms of God on Wednesday, November 15, 2023, at 12:15 pm at Life Beaver
County Assisted Living Home. She was the daughter of the late James Edward Johnson and Mildred Irene Johnson. She was a resident of Bridgewater, Pennsylvania.

Charmaine truly loved the Lord and was active at Second Baptist Church, Rochester, PA. She gave her life to the Lord as a young child and continued to serve throughout her adult life. She served on various committees within the church, including the Church Clerk, the Nurses Unit, the Service Guild, Choir, and Vacation Bible School. Her children (raised within the church) regularly attended Sunday School and Church services with her as a family.

Charmaine was a hard worker, loyal to whatever company she worked for including retail sales, a secretary at a drug rehab center, and Arco Polymer where she was a top-grade laborer and the only African American female in her department. She retired and was genuinely revered by her co-workers. In her later years, she enjoyed working as a Direct Care aide at Passavant Memorial Homes and Providence Care Center. Her patients were her passion.

Charmaine was a lover of people, young and old. To the youth she was their cheerleader, always celebrating their accomplishments and the elderly serving them with a car ride, grocery shopping or whatever was needed. Anywhere she went she found some friends. She spoke to everyone which normally ended up in a lengthy conversation. She made an impact on many peoples’ lives by caring for them, listening, and always encouraging them to be strong, proclaiming that “You can do it! “. It wouldn’t be a complete conversation with her without a little “fussing” and cracking a joke or two. Everyone called her Mimi, Mom, and Aunt Char and she was just that to many.

Charmaine was under the care of Life Beaver County for the last 6 years of her life. She attended the adult day care center daily. When she needed more care they came to the house to assist her and then finally she resided in their Assisted Living home in Aliquippa. Even there Charmaine made friends with the care staff, other residents and their families. She was never alone. They took great care of her allowing the family to have peace in knowing that she was in good hands.

Charmaine is preceded in death by her husband, Walter Smith, and her sister, Shirley Eady.

She is survived by her sister, Bonita Jefferson. Children: Tracey Johnson and Edward Johnson (Carrie).
