Cynthia Johnson, 78
PORTLAND - Cynthia Johnson, 78, passed away peacefully Aug. 4, 2018 in the arms of her husband of 54 years, after a long battle with MS.
She was born on March 31, 1940 in Augusta, to the late Judge Phillip E. Lamb and Norma Maxine Lamb of Gardiner. Cynthia grew up in Gardiner, and was very active in academic clubs, sports and cheerleading. She graduated from Colby College, and worked as a social worker for the Department of Health and Human Services for 30 years.
Cynthia married Paul A. Johnson on Aug. 22, 1964. They raised their family in Portland, and their love and dedication to each other and their family is an inspiration to all who know them. She was a long time member of St. Peter's Episcopal Church and later, Trinity Episcopal Church , where she was a volunteer. Cynthia had an angelic voice and sang in the choir for years. She loved reading, sewing, and spending time with beloved family and friends. She will be remembered for her courage, compassion and her sense of humor.
She is survived by her husband Paul Johnson of Portland; her son Mark P. Johnson and his wife Jennie (Fullerton) Johnson and grandson Joey Johnson, a son Jason E. Johnson of Pennsylvania; a brother David C. Lamb of Connecticut; a sister Nancy Knowles of Gardiner; nieces, nephews; and beloved friends.
A celebration of her life will be at the Wilde Memorial Chapel at Evergreen Cemetery, 672 Stevens Ave., Portland on Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2018, 11 a.m.
The family would like to thank the VNA hospice team for the loving and compassionate care that they provided for her.
