Johnson, Judith Ann, 66, of Glen Allen, Va., went to be with the Lord on Sunday, December 11, 2022, surrounded by loved ones after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. She was born in Worthington, Ohio on December 17, 1955. She was preceded in death by her parents Roger and Eleanor Van Buskirk. She is survived by her loving husband Brad Reed; daughters, Grace, Mary, and Emily; and sister, Linda Koy (Joseph).
She graduated from UNC Charlotte in 1978 and was an accomplished medical technologist spending the majority of her 43-year career in the Bon Secours clinical laboratory division.
She was known for her love of animals, especially horses and dogs. As co-founder of the Shady Grove Running Group and a Sports Backers 10k coach, she enjoyed many races with her friends. Some of her favorite times were spent with family and her dogs, whether at home enjoying a drink on the patio or vacationing in the Outer Banks.
The family will receive friends at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, December 21, at St. Michael, the Archangel Catholic Church, 4491 Springfield Rd., Glen Allen, Va. 23060 with a Funeral Mass at 10:30 a.m. A reception will immediately follow.
Her family would like to thank her care team at VCU Massey Cancer Center.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Church, or your favorite animal rescue.
