Celebrating Johnna Stahl’s Life


Hi everyone. The blogging community recently lost a member of the community, Johnna Stahl from All Things Chronic. At this time, her family is unsure of what caused her death. They suspect it was from natural causes. Her family is having a memorial for her in Houston soon. Johnna’s sister said they plan on releasing 54 blue balloons and maybe some butterflies. Johnna was 54 and her favorite color was blue. I’ll share photos from the memorial if and when her sister e-mails them to me. 


In Johnna’s honor, me and two of her blogging buddies, Kara and Laura want to host a blog memorial party for her on Sunday, March 19 here on Life of an El Paso Woman. I will put up a post at 10 a.m. We invite the blogging community and readers to stop by and leave comments about what you remember most about Johnna, music, poems, and/or anything else you would like to share throughout the day. I also setup a Go Fund Me account for Johnna’s family. Her family would eventually like to take Johnna’s car back to Houston by paying someone to drive it there or have it towed. They also want to assist with paying some of her final bills. The money may also be used for cremation costs if and when Johnna’s body is released to them. I’m hoping enough is raised by the end of the month, before her car gets towed from where she lived. If you would like to donate any funds, you can do so here. Any amount will really help. Please feel free to also spread the word. Thank you and I hope to see you at Johnna’s memorial here.

  2. I didn’t want to drive so we flew. It’s too much driving for myself! I got a pretty good deal on the flight and hotel. I didn’t gamble as much because I had my son with us. That’s probably a good thing though! Lol. I really would’ve spent all my money! I know what you mean about the sound. Lol.

  6. I figured you weren’t feeling well. I’m not sure how much the flight or hotel is yet. The dinner runs about $45 per person. I got you if I win the lottery πŸ˜‰

  10. Hi Sue! She is missed by many! One of her sisters called to let me know her memorial was on Friday in Houston. We bloggers did a little memorial for her yesterday. Please check it out if you can here on my blog. Some of her sisters, her mother and lots of bloggers left comments in it. One of her sisters also shared a couple of videos of her photography and family photos. Her niece did a great job on them. The videos are beautiful even though they made me cry. Johnna’s son also left a comment in the blog. We are family here, Sue πŸ™‚
