Obituary of Jenny Lee Johnson
Jenny “The Boss” Johnson, of Independence, KY passed away surrounded by her family at her residence on the morning of Sunday, December 19, 2021 at the age of 70.
She was born in Covington, KY on March 9, 1952; the daughter of the late George and Pauline Melvin. Jenny had worked as a cook, retiring from R.A. Jones Manufacturing in Covington, KY. In her spare time, she enjoyed cooking, baking and singing. Jenny had an immense love for animals and often enjoyed watching The Walton’s and Joel Osteen on television.
