Gay Edwina “Chicken” Johnson

June 1, 1946 – February 25, 2019
Born June 1, 1946 passed away suddenly on February 25, 2019. Predeceased by her parents Jane and Edwin DeGrey Seaman, and her sister Cherry DeGrey Osborn. Chicken is survived by her husband, Mike “MJ” Johnson, sons Nick (Jen) and Tim Johnson; as well as grandson Richard Burke.

With husband Mike, she was co-owner of Wings Fine Art, Publisher of Aviation Art. She enjoyed spoiling her 2 sons, cooking and walking her 2 labs.

“Chicken” as she was lovingly known by her family and friends was 5 feet, one half inch (the half inch was important to her), she was a firecracker who always put family first, and a real character who excelled at being eccentric to all who knew and loved her. She loved her husband and sons, “as big as the whole wide world and more.”

A celebration of her life will take place at a later date.
