Sending my condolences to Ova's family.  I was Margaret's classmate and friend at Pharisburg Elementary School and also remember Janet and Ova.    Ova's obituary is inspiring.  What a remarkable, meaningful career!  May God be a comfort to you all.

I myself had the pleasure of caring for Mr.Johnson for the last year and a half. He was a very sweet man who would do anything for anybody if they ask. He really enjoyed watching the Hallmark channel, an his favorite snack was cooked ham and colby jack cheese (no bread). I will truly miss his smiling face, as well as his smirky sense of humor, & listening to his stories of when he was in the nursing field! I send my love & condolences to his entire family. May Ova rest gently in The arms of The Lord. God bless
