LAKEPORT, Calif. — Carolyn Johnson, “CJ,” passed away April 25, 2023, in Lakeport surrounded by family and loved ones after a short battle with cancer at the age of 87.

She was born in Amesbury, Massachusetts and spent most of her life in San Francisco and graduated from Balboa High School.

She later moved to Novato, then moved to Lake County to build and resided in her home in Lucerne, California for over 40 years.

Throughout her career she held many high secretarial positions earning employee of the year and a letter from then-Sen. Mike Thompson while employed with Lake County Public Works.

She retired in 1996 but continued an active lifestyle of fishing, bowling, doing puzzles, playing Mahjong, playing the organ and yard work, and her favorite place to shop was Home Depot.

CJ took pride in everything she did and had a lot of friendships that lasted a lifetime! She will be really missed, always cherished and loved, and never forsaken. In lieu of sending flowers donations can be made to Hospice of Lake County.

A celebration of life will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, June 1, at the Nice Community Baptist Church.
