On Wednesday, August 24, 2022, Margaret Young Johnson, 76, passed away in her sleep with her family at her side.
Margaret was from Catskill, NY, but had lived in Virginia for the past 40 years. She was preceded in death by her Parents George and Rose Young, her Brothers Gary and Kevin Young, and her Sister Sandra Romack. She is survived by her soulmate, Preston Johnson; two sons, Joseph Marcello (Leona), and Michael Carey; a daughter, Sallyanne Marcello; and grandchildren. Margaret was a person of character and values who did not suffer fools lightly.
She absolutely adored her children. She would do anything for her children even at the expense of her own wellbeing. She loved and took care of any and all animals her entire life. Margaret donated her time, energy, and money to anything that would benefit animals. One of her most proud accomplishments; she helped raise four beautiful granddaughters who are strong young ladies now and doing well in life. She did her best to keep her extended family together and to make sure all the family members realized they were loved. She will be missed by all of us who loved her so much. Special thanks to Ms. Leona Hall who provided so much love and care during the hospice period.
