Lorraine "Rainy" Johnson, of O'Fallon, Missouri, passed away on Friday, February 22, 2008, at the age of 59.

She was a daughter of Joy Margaret and the late Elwin Louis Burch. Beloved wife of Christopher David Johnson. Loving mother to Christopher Michael (Christina Emily Ortbals) Johnson, Stacey LeAnn Johnson and Shannon Nicole (Brian Keith) Johnson. Cherished grandmother of Evan Matthew Johnson. Dear sister to Barbara Jo (Ken) Kenoyer, Alison Kay (the late Michael) Patterson. Dearest sister-in-law, niece, aunt and cherished friend to many.

She was a girl scout district training coordinator, a cub scout den mother and a parish member at St. Barnabas Church. Lorraine's life extended far beyond her family. She touched lives of so many people, young and old and brought them into hers. Her heart never stopped surrounding each and everyone of us. She lived her life the way Christ showed us, living by His example of how to live life to its fullest with love and forgiveness.

Rainy fought a 20-year battle with multiple sclerosis, but she faced life with courage and determination. She was an inspiration to all who knew her.
