OFFERING FOOD FOR THE JOHNSON FAMILY

MAKING A GIFT IN MEMORY OF JB JOHNSON

Donearl has requested that in lieu of flowers, they would like gifts to be made to the recently established Betty Johnson Adoption and Foster Care Support Fund. This fund is a designated account at LifeChurch Auburn Hills where all gifts made to it will go 100% to supporting local adoption and foster care initiatives. This fund was established when Donearl’s mother passed in March 2019 because she was such an advocate for foster youth. Throughout their marriage, JB joined in advocating alongside his wife, and the Johnson family desires their shared work to continue into the future.

If you would like to give online, you can go to www.lifechurchauburnhills.org/adoption to make a gift. To give by check, make the check out to LifeChurch Auburn Hills and put “Foster Care and Adoption” in the memo line. Checks can be sent to:

LifeChurch Auburn Hills
PO Box 211018
Auburn Hills, MI 48321

A sincere thank you to all of you who have desired to support Donearl, Jenetta, and the entire Johnson family at this time. They have been so appreciative of all the love they have received in the form of encouragement and condolences.
