Buckley resident Rosemary Eymann-Johnson, 82, died June 13, 2017, in Enumclaw.

She was born Aug. 25, 1934, in Madison, Ind., to Lawrence and Marcella Lauer. She loved to stay fit, making sure she walked two miles a day on her treadmill and stayed active in her yoga class. She always wanted to stay up to date on technology with a computer and smartphone and was active on Facebook. She loved her church, St Aloysius in Buckley, where she was a member of the Alter Society and Prayer Chain Group. She always participated in Holy Devotion on First Friday and was a strong believer in the power of prayer. When she married Denny Johnson, they were Father Ludvik’s first marriage as the new priest in Buckley and her funeral will be his last before he retires.

She is survived by husband Denny of Buckley; daughters Diane Feffer of Bismarck, N.D., and Nancy Jones (Van) of Mississippi; sons Henry Eymann of Plano, Texas, and Joseph Eymann (Shered) of Eagan, Minn.; stepchildren Chris Johnson (Anna) of Enumclaw and Cynthia Roberts (Steve) of Seattle; 13 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

A funeral took place Saturday, June 17, at St Aloysius Catholic Church in Buckley. Burial will be in Bismarck, N.D.
