Kathleen Faye Johnson (nee Mitchell), 72 of Berlin WI, passed away suddenly on July 18, 2023. Kathy was born in Milwaukee WI on November 16th, 1950 and grew up in Waukesha loving writing, art, horses, dogs, and birds. She purchased her first horse at age 19, and went on to purchase a farm in Fort Atkinson with her Parents to accommodate the growing band of 5 horses, 2 cows, ducks, chickens, pigs, and goats. Kathy’s vision and appreciation for beauty and nature led her to build a timber cabin almost single handedly in the majestic Appalachian Mountains of Alabama where she gained an abundance of inspiration for her artwork.
Kathy was a phenomenal artist, writer and crafter and spent her lifetime perfecting her many talents. Kathy's love for dogs and birds led her to breed Basenjis and various breeds of birds. Her family takes great comfort in knowing that her Mother, Father, Sisters and all of her beloved pets greeted her with loving arms and pet snuggles as she ascended into Heaven to meet her Heavenly Father, God Almighty.
