Obituary

Florence Johnson, 84, of Eaton, passed away on March 23, 2020 and will be deeply missed by all that knew her.
She was born to Rudolph and Pauline (Schmidt) Schlotthauer on March 13, 1936, grew up near Severance and graduated from Windsor, then lived most of her life in Eaton.

Some know her from church in Windsor or tending flowers and bargain hunting during a decade after a miraculous recovery from near death due to lung cancer.

Many remember her from 20 years as hostess at the Country Inn or through 38 years of sobriety and sponsorship at Greeley’s AA south club.

She is survived by her children, Mark (Rebecca) Johnson and Michelle (Troy) Livermont; grandchildren, Tyler Livermont (Theresa LaRubio) and Jared Livermont; brother, Ronald Schlotthauer; and sister-inlaw, Judy Schlotthauer. She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings, Ruby and Rudy.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Florence’s name can be made out to Faith United Church of Christ in care of Adamson Life Celebration Home, 2000 47th Avenue, Greeley, Colorado 80634. To leave condolences for Florence’s family, www.adamsoncares.com

Due to CDC restrictions, Life Celebration Memorial will be held at a later date.

Mark and Michelle. I want to tell you how sorry I am about your mom's death. As you know she was a very special person to Mary Ann & I. Over the years we spent a lot of Thanksgivings and Christmases together with her. She and Mary Ann were so proud of their two grandsons as they watched them grow up. She felt so bad when Mary Ann developed Alzheimer's and no longer was able to communicate with us. Now they are both in heaven and she can tell Mary Ann what fine grandsons they have. I hope all your wonderful memories will carry you thru this sad time.

What many of you don't know about Florence is the miraculous story of her recovery from lung cancer. In early June of 2007, she had half of one lung removed. Almost immediately things didn't go quite as planned. The doctors accidently cut her liver and her heart stopped during the surgery. A couple of months later, while recovering in a nursing home, her wound became infected, re-opened, and she was rushed to the hospital and we were told that her heart stopped in the ambulance.
While in the hospital, the day after Labor Day that same year, she began to cough up blood, and her heart stopped again. Doctors performed CPR on her for 27-minutes before telling the nurses that they had lost her. While they were rolling up the various tubes and wires, she had a heart beat.
The family was called in. She was in an unresponsive state, with fixed and dilated eyes, on full life support. The doctors told the family they had read of people recovering at this stage, but had never witnessed it. Six hours later a neurologist said he could check again the next morning for brain function, but was certain she would be a "vegetable", was essentially "brain dead", and "if it was my mother, I would unplug the machines."
Her mother, Pauline, who has since passed, asked Pastor Fred to come and pray for her. Fred prayed for peace and likely thought he was praying for a peaceful passing to God's care in Heaven.
However, to everyone's surprise, she woke up in the middle of the night. To this day she lives in her home of the past 40 years, drives her own car, walks a quarter mile on the treadmill most days, and is nearly as active as she ever was both physically and mentally. She has, of course, remained strong in her faith.
The reason this story is being shared, is as a testimony to God's grace, to the existence of miracles, and the power of prayer.
One nurse told the family that this was exactly what the Greeley hospital needed - a miracle.
One doctor, who obviously did not believe in God, told us "whatever God you are praying to, keep it up".
Her cousin, Helen (Schlotthauer) Gebhardt was at the hospital laying on hands just before the worst of the episodes. She didn't go to talk with family, or call people on the phone, or question the care she was receiving, or anything like that, but simply sat and prayed. She is such a witness of strong faith.
Again, this story is shared to say that doctors don't know everything they think they know; that our heavenly Father is the one who is in control; and that prayer to Jesus is more powerful than anything.

Mark, thank you for sharing this story. What a testimony she was to many folks as to God's healing power and her faithfulness in a time of crisis. I didn't realize she was related to Helen Gebhardt. I worked with Leon at Kodak in corporate Security for several years. Got to know Helen and family.
