March 30, 1943 — February 20, 2024


Catherine Mae Johnson, of Wausau, passed away at Aspirus Wausau Hospital on February 20, 2024, with her family and friends by her side.

Cathy was born March 30, 1943, in Fond du Lac, to the late Elmer and Agnes Waldschmidt. Cathy was a real people person. She loved to share Bible knowledge with others. She nurtured her friendships all over the world and made it a point to stay in touch with others. She enjoyed baking and sharing her goodies with everyone. She loved roses and even grew them at home. She took pride in her children and loved them unconditionally. Cathy will be remembered for her self-sacrifice; she always put others before herself. 

Cathy had an unshakable faith in the power of prayer and her hope for the future. Her main focus in life was her relationship with her God, Jehovah. She knew without a doubt that her creator will resurrect her and those she loved to live forever on a paradise earth.

Cathy will be dearly missed by all who knew her. 

She is survived by her children, John (Laurie) Johnson, Timothy (Mary) Johnson, and Brenda Johnson; grandchildren, Valen, Raven, and Aaron Johnson, Daniel, Kayla (Alex) Buresh, and Sean Arends; great-grandchildren, Karah, Jemma and Payton Arends, Liam Buresh, and Penelope Arends; sisters, Eleanore Gremminger and Jane Resch; in-laws she considered family; her spiritual family from Rib Mountain Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses; extended family and many friends. 

She is preceded in death by her husband, Russell Johnson; parents, Elmer and Agnes Waldschmidt; brother, Jerome Waldschmidt; and nephew, Chuck Meyers.
