Obituary of Dorothy Catherine Joensuu
Dorothy Catherine Joensuu (Johnson) completed her life’s journey and returned to her Father in Heaven on May 23, 2023. She was born September 11, 1934, to Fredrick and Minnie Johnson in Seattle, WA. She lived a great many years in a home she had built for her and her six children. Dorothy, affectionately known as Dottie or Tootsie, was an avid gardener, captain of her pool league, and loved dancing. She loved her family and will be missed for her stories, laughter, and her gift of gab. She had great faith in her Heavenly Father and the Lord Jesus Christ and is finally at rest in Heaven.
Dorothy is preceded in death by her parents, Fredrick and Minnie Johnson and brothers Robert and Arthur Johnson. She is survived by her six children: Charles Pierce (Bea), Linda Menster (Tim), Dawn Perkins (Garry), Karen Bowers (Jerry), Sandra Miracle (Mark), and Pamela Brunson. She is also survived by Eighteen Grandchildren, Forty-One Great Grandchildren, and Three Great-Great Grandchildren.
