Annetta Marie Swenson Johnson
Resident of Danville, Ca
February 13, 1946-July 19, 2020
Anne was the wife of David Cummings Johnson who passed away May 16, 2015. Anne is survived by her mother, Barbara Jean Fredrickson Parks, by her daughter, Kimberly Marie Holmes and granddaughter Maria Catalina Speyer in Danville, by her son Mason David Nels Holmes and wife Niko Anne and their children Mackenzie Anne, Hunter Chase, Bridger David and Haley Peyton in San Ramon, and countless cousins, nieces and nephews.
Grama Annie comes from a large, extended Danville family who will miss her beyond measure. She studied anthropology at SFSU, worked 24 years as a bookkeeper and was a lifelong learner of art, history, literature, birdwatching, and music. Her passion for travel drew her to explore Alaska, Scandinavia, Europe, Russia, Asia and North Africa where she and her sweetheart spent their days trying new food and trekking to remote villages and markets.
Her life was spent swimming at Cameo Pool, waterskiing at Lake Shasta, camping at Salt Creek, snow skiing at Dodge Ridge, and surfing in Hawaii where she loved to get Matsumoto Shave Ice. She loved Dumbo and the Pirate Ride at Disneyland, going to the Nutcracker Ballet and to her grandchildren’s sports and performances. She taught Boy Scouts how to swim and was forever sewing on merit badges. She was active in the LDS church Relief Society and temple. She loved music and her home was filled with the sounds of Elvis, BB King, Tchaikovsky and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Always at her stove, she cooked the best pancakes, garlic French bread and broccoli chicken casserole and also grew tomatoes, lemon cucumbers and pomegranates in her backyard. And she loved chocolate.
Anne will be laid to rest with her husband in Oakmont and services will be held at a later date.
