After leaving Denver, she moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico before coming to Waynesville in 2013. Tami was a hardworking woman and never gave a second thought to helping others…it was second nature to her. She worked in health care as a CNA for several years and after moving to Waynesville, she worked at Life Care Center of Waynesville, Dixon Nursing and Rehab, Sunset Village and then came back to Life Care Center of Waynesville. In her spare time, Tami enjoyed coloring, playing bingo, taking walks and going to movies. Most importantly, she loved her family and spending time with them was always a highlight of her day. She treasured those times and always looked forward to seeing her family. Stanna “Tami” Johnson passed away Wednesday, May 6, 2020 in the Life Care Center of Waynesville having attained the age of 53 years.
