Jean Graver Johnson, 79, passed away on Saturday afternoon at Wayne Memorial Hospital.

Jean was born in Norwich Norfolk, England on September 20, 1933 to the late George and Bella Browne Graver. She was a caring, loving parent and grandparent whose primary goal was the happiness and security of her family. Jean also supported the American Red Cross as a volunteer for over 40 years. She has donated over 20 gallons of blood to the American Red Cross and helped to save numerous lives. In her spare time she enjoyed getting out in her yard to work in her flower garden and watch the birds. Jean also enjoyed the many friends she had made while swimming at the Family Y.

The family will hold a private family service.

Jean is survived by her husband William Walter Johnson; daughters Jeannie Johnson Langnau and husband William George of Midlothian, Va, Celia Pfautz and husband Kevin of Smithfield; son Paul William Johnson of Virginia Beach, Va; grandchildren Kelly Pfautz Rousseau and husband Captain John, Jessica Johnson, and Christopher Johnson; great grandchild Lorelei Rousseau; sisters Sylvia Shaw and Margaret Smith of Norfolk, England.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the American Red Cross, 600 N. George Street, Goldsboro, NC 27530.
