September 19, 1931 - May 22, 2021
The world got a little brighter on September 19, 1931 when Hubert and Donna Johnson welcomed their baby girl in Batesville, Arkansas. Jenny Lee Johnson was a beauty from the start with her creamy fair skin and sparkling blue eyes. Years later this did not escape the attention of a certain young man from CA on assignment in Arkansas. Dan Coelho was completely smitten with this small town country girl. So, rather than leave her behind when Uncle Sam called him to serve, the two married on February 28, 1951 and headed for Camp Roberts, California.
They raised 5 children together and faced all of life’s ups and downs side by side for 52 years. Jenny’s passionate faith would see her through Dan’s unexpected departure for Heaven in December 2003.
Her faith, her husband and her family were always her priorities. So May 22, 2021 was a day of both joy and sorrow as Jenny walked through Heaven’s gates to join her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and be reunited with her beloved sweetheart.
She was also welcomed by her Mother and Daddy, brother & sister and all of Heaven singing Hallelujahs. We celebrate for her! Yet we feel the stinging loss of her presence here on Earth. She leaves behind her children Terrye Coelho Strom ['69] & husband Jim, Cathy Coelho Redmond & husband Tim, Danny Coelho & wife Teresa, David Coelho & wife Abbey and Michael Coelho & wife Ashley.
She will be terribly missed by 18 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren along with her faithful canine companion Josiah, and countless souls that have been eternally impacted just knowing this amazing woman. Our prayer warrior is with her King.
