Jeanne Johnson

July 1930
April 2023


Jeanne Johnson (Mosher/Crane) 92 passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loved ones on April 22, 2023. Jeanne was born on July 31, 1930, in Denver, Colorado to Charles Mosher and Mary Freeman. She was adopted by her stepfather Richard (Hap) Crane as a young child. She moved to Tucson in 1943 with her family. She is survived by her sister, Shirley McAnally, and two daughters, Debbie Porter (John) and Deenna Schunk-Peru (Richard), and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She graduated from Amphitheater High School in 1948. She spent most of her career working for FedMart Corporation, as the head cashier and retired from IBM. She wanted nothing more than to be a mom and a grandma. She was the matriarch of the family and instilled core values, a competitive spirit, and sass into her family. She believed in and loved all of us so very much. She had an amazing work ethic, advocated for equality, and loved anything with four legs or wings. She knew how to stand her ground but she would also give the shirt off of her back to someone in need, even if it was her last one. Her love for ceramics, crafts, art, and gardening was shared with her family. She enjoyed making people laugh, treasure hunting, and rock hounding, and had a green thumb. She had a passion for beating everyone at Scrabble and other games, journaling, dancing, and winning at the casino. Even to the end of her life, she loved to give people heck and show them her sassy favorite finger. She was full of sass and class, will be forever missed, and will always be in our hearts. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Hands of Hope Tucson in her honor. Thank you so much for your love and support!
