Stephanie E. Johnston - May 15, 2012

Stephanie E. (nee Godri) Johnston, formerly of Harding, PA, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family, Thursday morning, May 10, 2012, after a courageous 18 month battle with cancer. Born in Scranton on November 21st, 1979, the youngest of four children, she was the beloved daughter of Edward C. and Mary Foy Godri of Harding, PA. Raised in Harding, she was a 1998 graduate of Wyoming Area High School, where she ran cross country, track and field and was a Member of National Honor Society. She was voted “Most Likely to Succeed” by her classmates. A 2002 Graduate of King’s College, she majored in Chemistry graduating with a Bachelor of Science. During college she worked part time at the Lion Brewery and after graduation she was employed by Topps Candy Company in Duryea, PA. She was a lifelong member of the Church of the Holy Redeemer (Corpus Christi Parish), Harding. She dutifully supported her husband’s military career moving to Hawaii, Kentucky, New York, and New Jersey, enduring countless training exercise and deployments. In Hawaii she taught science at St Michael’s School in Wailua, HI and completed her Masters of Arts in Education at the University of Phoenix. At Fort Drum, NY, Steph, volunteered at Augustinian Academy in Carthage, NY organizing the yearbook and serving as an Army Family Readiness Group Leader. She enjoyed cats, loved running, Gerber daisies, traveling to new places, visiting friends, and most of all being just being, in her words “a Mom”. Her favorite season was fall. A model of charity and faith, between cancer treatments, she gathered clothing and donations for Susquehanna flood victims. She did the same for her husband’s Soldiers gathering soaps, razors, linens, and towels she made sure that no Soldier returned from Afghanistan to an empty barracks room. During treatments she routinely baked cakes and sweets for her doctors and nurses, trying to care for them the way they cared for her. She will live on in the hearts of her family, friends, and her children. Her warm spirit, caring nature, constant concern for others, and deep faith leaves an indelible mark on this world. A devoted wife and mother she is survived by her husband, US Army Major Andrew Johnston, stationed at Picatinny Arsenal, NJ, son Luke, 5, daughter Sarah, 1. Her parents Edward and Mary Godri of Harding, PA; brothers, Matthew and his wife Tracie of Collingswood, NJ and Stephen and his wife Patti of Arlington,VA ; sister, Maria and her husband Chris of Atlanta, GA; nieces, Rebecca, Gianna, and Lyla and nephews, Jackson and Axton.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, May 15, 2012, at 9:30 A.M. in the Church of the Holy Redeemer (Corpus Christi Parish) Harding, PA. Those attending the funeral mass are asked to go directly to the church on Tuesday morning as there will be no procession from the funeral home. Interment will be in Hillside Cemetery, Roslyn, PA.

Dear Andrew, Luke and Sarah and all of Stephanie's family, My family and I are so sorry to learn of your loss. It was so moving to be able to to come to this site and read about this loving woman and to see her photo and remember how naturally beautiful she was. I am so glad I was able to know Stephanie while she was in Carthage. I will always remember the walks we took with Luke and my daughter Erin and how nice it was to have another mom with whom to share the challenges of pregnancy and motherhood. I will always remember her fondly. She just never seemed at all unhappy. I will also smile when I remember the way she liberally applied hand sanitizer to Luke whenever we stopped at the playground. She was truly a beautiful soul and my prayer is that God comforts all of you in her absence. With heartfelt condolences, Mary Bracy

I am sorry for your loss and will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers. May all the happy memories of such an amazing daughter, sister, wife and Mom help to heal your sorrow.

I never knew Steph, but through a wife of a connected friend and facebook I just learned about an amazing person who I feel deserves at least these few minutes of condolence. To her family and friends, what a amazing pleasure it had to have been to see her in action as she did those little things for others while she suffered so greatly. What saintly qualities. Please accept my most gracious wishes for her children and may they someday know that she is watching over her children and guiding them from above. And when they bake their cakes, provide aide for those in need or just smile at someone who needs it- that will be their mother inside of them. God Bless you all.
