Debra Johnson

Woodward, Okla. — Debra Jo Johnson, 47 year old Fargo resident, died Monday, September 17, 2012. Funeral services was be held at 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, September 19, 2012 in the Billings Funeral Home Chapel. Burial will follow in the Fargo Cemetery.

Debra Jo (Eash) Johnson was born on December 21, 1964 in Elkhart, Indiana to Ivan and Mary Jo (Ehret) Eash. She came one day before her father’s birthday, but she refused to wait. She had two older brothers, Tom and Jerry. Debra Jo was daddy’s little girl until the day he died. She attended Concord Community Schools in Elkhart and graduated in 1983. She attended college at the St. Joseph’s College in Rensseloer, Indiana. After her college years, Debra went to work for the National Bank of Detroit for five years. It was during that time that she met her future husband, Bob Johnson. They were united in marriage on November 11, 1989. In July of 1991, Zachary Wayne Johnson was born and they were thrilled. When Zachary turned one Debra quit her job to be a full time stay at home mother. It may have not been the most respected job, but she wouldn’t have traded a moment of it for anything. In October of 1996, Tyler Ivan Johnson was born and their family was complete. At least Debra thought so, because in 1998 the family moved to Oklahoma and she was blessed with four amazing step-children. She always said it was then that her family was complete. Debra always thought she wouldn’t adjust to small town life, but she loved it.

Debra spent her time taking care of her family, home schooling her children, and church activities. God blessed her and her family in many ways.

She is survived by her husband Bob Johnson of Fargo; two sons, Zachary Wayne Johnson and wife Kortnie of Fargo, Tyler Ivan Johnson of Fargo; three step-sons, Dallas McLemore and wife Anissa of Newalla, Dustin Johnson and wife Ashley of Edmond, Jack Croisant and wife Stacy; one step-daughter Michelle Brockman of Edmond; two brothers, Thomas J. Eash and wife Wendy of Elkhart, Indiana, Jerry J. Eash and wife Geneva of Elkhart, Indiana; step-grandchildren, Shyanne McLemore, Shelby McLemore, Jonah Brockman, Dalton McLemore, Rene and Logan Johnson, Kaylee Frazier, Andie Croisant and one on the way, Preslee Marie Jo Johnson; three sisters-in-law, Barbara Bryant and husband Cary of Hobart, Wendy Butler and husband Andy, Louise Stinson and husband Doc of Woodward; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents.
