Kathy Ruth Johnson 1954 - 2012 Tahlequah, OK

Tahlequah, OK - Kathy Ruth Johnson, 57, went to be with her Lord and Savior on April 24, 2012.
A private graveside service will take place for Kathy Ruth Johnson in Tahlequah, Oklahoma on May 1, 2012, at 11:00am. Arrangements are under the direction of Hart Funeral Home in Tahlequah, OK.
She was born December 3, 1954, in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, the daughter of Kermit and Pauline Clark. Kathy was known as a positive, loving woman with a huge heart for her family, those less fortunate, and the many animals she adopted throughout her life. She enjoyed the beauty of the outdoors, cooking for her family, her houseplants, sewing, cross-stitching, and making rag rugs. Her kids and grandchildren were her pride and joy, and she identified herself as ‘Grandma Kathy’ in her final years.
Kathy was preceded in death by her husband, Jim Johnson, and by her father, Kermit Clark. Survivors include her children, Jessica A. Anderson and husband Joe, Oskaloosa, KS; Stephen M. Snyder and wife Megan, Topeka, KS; and Jason D. Snyder and fiancé Tonya, Kansas City, MO; her beloved grandchildren, Michaela, Kaiden, Landon, Clayton, and Jaylon; and her basset hound, Molly. Also surviving are her mother, Pauline Mathias, Tahlequah, OK; sister Mary Bigler and husband Garth, Beechy, Saskatchewan; brother Tom Clark and wife Carol, Tahlequah, OK; and sister, Shayla Johnsrud and husband Conrad, Topeka, KS; six nephews and a niece; and a special friend and supporter Kathy Collins, Lawrence, KS.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to Hart Funeral Home, 1506 N. Grand, Tahlequah, OK, 74464. All contributions will be redirected to a meaningful charity, yet to be determined, in Kathy’s honor.
