Vera Lindbom

Vera Lindbom died Oct. 28, 2014 at home surrounded by her loving family.

A service will be at 3 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 9, at Abundant Life Community Church.

Vera was born in Wis., Oct. 5, 1921 to Mr. and Mrs. Serafino Castagna. She graduated from Castlemont High School in Oakland, Calif., in 1940.

Her greatest joy in life was raising her two sons, Jonny and Alan Johnson, who were always there for her. Her daughters-in-law were like the daughters that she never had.

Vera always enjoyed church at a very young age, and continued to be an active member of the Abundant Life Church. Some of her other joys in life included dancing, singing, gardening and walking.

She is survived by her sons; Jonny (Toynette) and Alan (Jill) and grandchildren; Trent (Jean), Christopher and Brynne, as well as grandchild Everett as well as a number of loving nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her husband Ober J. Johnson and six brothers and sisters.
