Beverly Ann Johnson, 77, of Chillicothe, passed away at 1:57 p.m. Tuesday, August 29, 2023 in the Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center unexpectedly.
She was born January 31, 1946, in Circleville, Ohio, to the late Willard L. and Marybelle Weaver Speakman. On July 14, 1994, she married Kenneth L. Johnson, Sr. who survives.

Beverly was an avid flower gardener and enjoyed decorating her home for the different seasons of the year. She loved to vacation in Pigeon Forge in the Great Smokey Mountains of Tennessee. Beverly also enjoyed showing her 1946 Chevrolet pickup truck, which was a project started by her brother, Mark. Before he could finish restoring the truck, he was killed in a motorcycle accident. Beverly inherited the vehicle from him and she and her husband finished the restoration of the truck. They have been showing it at local car shows ever since.
