Johnson, Renée Romein

Renée Romein-Johnson of Bonham, TX passed away on Monday, November 14, 2016. Renée was born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on August 12, 1943.  She grew up in Amsterdam where she met her husband Tommy Johnson while he was on a visit on leave from the US Army Base in Metz, France.

In 1962, she immigrated to Michigan, USA with her parents and her 3 brothers, and left shortly thereafter for Texas to marry Tommy. She was employed in Bonham by Wal-Mart in the Pharmacy Department until her retirement in 2005. Renée was very cheerful and helpful with her family, friends and customers.

Renée often traveled to Europe with Tommy and at times with her late brother Paul to visit relatives and friends. She was artistic in many ways and she excelled in picture painting. She loved long walks on the beach, working in her yard and various animals and especially her cats. We will miss her beautiful smile; her graciousness, kindness, and the way she always made you feel welcome.

Renée is survived by her husband Tommy Johnson; son, Eddie Johnson and wife, Lori; daughter, Michelle Johnson; grandchildren, Scott Johnson and wife Bonnie, Kevin Johnson, Bill Thomas Tinsley and wife, Kaci; great grandchildren, Karsyn, Adilyn, Kaygan and Brayton; brothers, Ron Romein and wife, Martine, and Tom Romein; numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family as well as many friends in the United States, The Netherlands, and France.

My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!
