Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Loretta Margaret Johnson, age 88

Loretta Margaret Johnson, 88, of Cabot passed away on August 23, 2020.  She was born on September 12, 1931 in St. Johns, Newfoundland, Canada to the late Nicholas and Mary (Sivea) McGrath.

She loved her QVC and shopping; if you knew her then you knew that she could be opinionated and set in her ways but that is what made you love her all that much more. She retired from working at the Officers Club after 30 years.

She is preceded in death by her husband Carlton Douglas Johnson and son James Douglas Johnson.

Loretta leaves behind her daughter Paula Fitch; her white labs, her everything, Jake and Rondo, her grandchildren James Carlton Fitch (Pam) and their three children, Jamie Murdock (Shawn) and their three children; Rickie Renee Burt and their two children, and Doug Johnson and his two children.

Arrangements are entrusted to A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas.  501-982-3400

    So sad to hear of Lorettas passing. It’s the end of an era for JC and his family. She was a feisty gal but she also loved her family greatly. Rest In Peace

    My Aunt Loretta, people have told me over the years that I looked like you, I can see it now that I am older. My dad Raymond always talked highly of you and that you were opinionated and set in your ways that is me and all my sisters. I hope they love me the way that they loved you. RIP you are with Poppy Nick, Nanny Mary (Sevier), your brothers Raymond, Uncle Joe and Aunt Mary, and of course your husband and son. Your one and only sister remains, Aunt Ann (Ghaney)…..My condolences to Paula and her family, so sorry for your loss, even more sorry for not knowing her. My sister Barbara and I always talked about going to visit her, just a little to late. As is life 🙂
