Trisha Dawn Johnson, 48, of Ashland, passed away Tuesday morning, January 30, 2024 at the Hospice Care Center in Ashland. Trish was born December 9, 1975, in Ashland, a daughter of Evelyn Fleming Blanton of Ashland and the late Danny Allen Blanton. In addition to her father, her husband Jon Johnson also preceded her in death.
Trish attended school at Boyd County and graduated from Rose Hill Christian High School. She had a beautiful singing voice and loved to worship in song at her church, Wildwood Baptist Church. Her passion for sharing the word of God directed her to serve through the Southern Baptist Convention as a Christian missionary in the Memphis, TN area for three and a half years. Her career path also was service oriented and she held an administrative position at Ironton-Lawrence County Community Action Organization (ILCAO), which provides services to residents of Lawrence County, OH, by providing opportunities for those in need. Another passion was serving as a foster parent. She and her late husband Jon had the privilege to be foster parents to more than 39 children.
Those left to cherish her memory in addition to her mother Evelyn, include her sons Michael Blake Johnson of Ashland, James Martinez of Boyd County and her golden-doodle Charlie. She was also blessed and loved by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
