Mary Jo Canale-Johnson was born to Daniel and Alma Canale on February 13, 1962 and was the 7th of eight children to whom will live on in her memory.
She was a blessing to this world because she devoted almost 40 years to being a pediatric nurse. Mary Jo traveled the world and saw the most beautiful scenes. Yet, the most beautiful thing was her soul. She was a loving wife to Terry Johnson for 22 years; her step children, Terry Witte, and Megan Kring, and their children; and above all, a mother to Sarah Johnson. Sarah will continue her legacy by finishing her studies at the University of Akron and will devote her life to children just like Mary Jo.
