Evelyn ‘E.J.’ Johnston

KENT — Evelyn “E.J.” Johnston died on Feb. 20, 2019, at the age of 90. 

Born in Minneapolis, Minn., E.J. transferred from Phillips Petroleum Company to their international office in New York City, where she enjoyed working and living for the next 30 years. 

She relished moving to Kent in retirement. 

E.J. enjoyed and cherished her circle of friends. 

Memorable were those hikes along Cobble Road in Kent, those bike outings around Lake Waramaug, Monday Morns with the Art Ladies of Kent, those wonderful day trips with “The Group,” special times in NYC at the museums and Broadway shows. GOOD TIMES, indeed … there were MANY!

E.J. was a member of the Kent Art Association, The Kent Informal Club, the Kent Memorial Library and the Monday Morn Art Group. 

She is survived by her brother, Gordon; and several special nephews and nieces. 

Services will be private and held at the family summer place on Big Pine Lake in Minnesota. 

The Kenny Funeral Home in Sharon has care of arrangements.
