On a beautiful sunny afternoon, Sunday, January 14th, at Parkwood Hospital in London, ON, Anastasia (Stacey) Johnson nee Barrett peacefully passed away in her 61st year with her loving family by her side. Survived by her loving husband Steve Johnson of 36 years (May 21, 1988), father Peter Barrett, mother Heather Barrett (predeceased), father-in-law Alan Johnson, mother-in-law Cynthia Johnson (predeceased).  Dear mother to Candace Barrett, Jessica Greene (Kody), Tyler Johnson (Emerald) & Alyna Gellatly (Kyle).

Survived by her brother Christopher Barrett (Anna), sister Connie Barrett (Kevin), brother-in-law Dave Johnson, brother-in-law Paul Johnson (Kathryn). Loved by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and cousins. 

Stacey was everyone’s hero. A vibrant and full of life woman who fiercely loved her family and life itself. She was one of the strongest, bravest, and most loving souls that warmed the hearts of everyone who knew her. During her life, Stacey fought many health battles, Crohn's disease (diagnosed age 21) and then Ovarian Cancer (diagnosed age 58). She never let these illnesses get in her way and enjoyed life to the fullest. She strongly refused to show weakness and was selfless many times in keeping her struggles to herself as to protect everyone around her because she did not want them to worry for her.   

Stacey enjoyed her time spent with family and friends and cherished every moment with them.  She had a love for her fairy garden, wearing comfy slippers and drinking Tim Horton’s coffee. "Medium double, double please." She cherished family get-togethers and many good parties with her husband, Steve in their home.  She was always accommodating and made everyone feel welcome and like family no matter who they were. Stacey and her husband Steve’s home is and always was open to anyone.
