Muncie – Mary Shockley Johnson, 95, passed away on July 8, 2018.

Mary is preceded in death by her husband, Robert L. Johnson; and a son, Robert Kent Johnson.

She is survived by her daughters, Roxie Miller (husband, Bill) of Atlanta, Georgia; Lois Geiger (husband, Vince) of Indianapolis; a daughter-in-law, Julia Johnson of Indianapolis; a brother-in-law, Johnny Johnson (wife, Janet) of Muncie; a sister-in-law, Marian Shockley of Muncie.

She will be missed by her seven grandchildren, Kirsten Howard and Ashlee Stubits of Atlanta, Georgia; Natalie Abshire, Kandice Clevenger and Clay Johnson of Indianapolis; Trey Geiger of Toronto; and Courtney Ladewig of Dallas, Texas; as well as her nine great-grandchildren.

Born February 15, 1923, Mary was raised in Muncie and spent more than eight decades in her family farm home. As the youngest of seven children, she developed an incredible work ethic and resilience that set the precedent for her entire life as well as her children’s and grandchildren’s. Her sisters and brothers include Juva Burns, Roxie Hamilton, and William, Thomas, John and Edmund Shockley.

Mary graduated from Cowan High School and Indiana Business School. She worked for Indiana Michigan Electric before becoming a life-long homemaker and devoted farm wife. She and her husband, Bob, were married sixty-three years.

A charter member of Wonder Wives Home Economics Club, Mary also served as a Little Red Door volunteer and a member of the Delaware County Republican women. She enjoyed attending Tabor Baptist Church and made many wonderful friends there.

After moving to Morrison Woods assisted living in Muncie and later The Barrington in Carmel, she made many new friends. Her kind, fun-loving and approachable nature will be missed by all. Special thanks to Morrison Woods of Muncie, The Barrington of Carmel and Kindred Hospice.
