Sally J Johnson, age 81 of Butler IN, went home to be with her Lord on Monday April 24th, 2023 at The Laurels of DeKalb in Butler Indiana after an extended illness. Sally's career began in a small grocery in Defiance at age 15. Working beside her father she became a skilled meat cutter. Using this skill she was employed by Harold's Grocery, Sutton's market, and Owens market. She retired after 17 years from the Auburn Kroger's store as manager of the deli. She was an active member of the Butler United Methodist church. She also enjoyed membership with the Butler Ener-Jets. As a sports fan she was a league bowler and followed NFL football. She was an avid reader and a frequent visitor to the local library. Most of all she loved being with friends and family. From "the girls" get together, the family holidays, or the impromptu neighbor/ friends' visits were the highlights of her life. She was a people person with a quick smile and a laugh that was contagious.
Sally J Johnson was born February 4, 1942 the daughter of D. Russel Johnson and Mercey (Fisher) Johnson. Survivors include many special families, friends, and cousins whose lives she touched. She was preceded in death by her parents, and Buttons, her little dog companion of 13 years.
