Nancy Jane Johnson

October 9, 1914 - March 8, 2019

Nancy Jane Johnson, 104, of N. Park St.,Wheeling, died Friday, March 8, 2019 at Wheeling Hospital.
She was born October 9, 1914 in Wheeling, daughter of the late Reese and Jesse Cummings.
Nancy was a member of Christ United Methodist Church, was retired from Ohio County Schools after working for 25 years at Woodsdale School cafeteria and Edgington Lane School where she was friends with students, teachers and administrators. She also worked at Hazel Atlas, Wheeling Electric and the Ohio County Sheriff’s office,and sold Avon for 40 plus years in the Woodsdale and Carmel road areas. She became good friends with many of her customers that looked forward to her visits.
A poplar and familiar figure in her Woodsdale neighborhood, Nancy was frequently seen riding her bicycle to run errands, visit yard sales and mingle with friends well into her 90’s. In recent years, she could be found on her front porch surrounded by family and neighbors who delighted in her good humor, fearless spirit and clear affection for her sons. Nancy was always interested in the lives of her family, her vegetable garden, the long time acquaintances and neighbors whose visits kept her young at heart, and the health and progress of the children she came to know through friends and family. Her kindness was matched by her willingness to help others, often through provision of sound advice and always accompanied by good natured teasing and laughter.
In addition to her parents, Nancy was preceded in death by her husband, George Johnson, and one son, Greig C.Johnson.
She is survived by one son, Bruce Johnson of Morgantown and Wheeling and several nieces and nephews.
Friends will be received on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 at Christ United Methodist Church from 11:00am until time of services at 1:00pm with Rev. Jake Steele officiating.
Interment for Nancy will be held Wednesday, March 13, 2019 at Camp Ground Cemetery, Tunnelton, WV.
