Anne Moore Johansson

June 15, 1931 — March 1, 2020

Anne Moore Johansson passed away peacefully Sunday morning March 1, 2020
on Bainbridge Island, Washington at the age of 88. Born June 15, 1931 in San
Francisco, CA., she was the daughter of Lloyd and Patricia (Hooper) Moore. Anne
attended elementary school in San Francisco and went to middle school and high
school overseas because of her father's employment with Aramco of the Standard
Oil Company. The family lived in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and India. Anne graduated
from Kodaikanal high school located in the mountains of India in the southern
Indian state of Tamil Nadu. India remained one of her favorite places in the world
throughout her life. She later met the love of her life Jim (Karl James) Johansson
in Missoula Montana where they attended the University of Montana. They were
married in 1949 on Bainbridge where Jim had lived since an infant. They moved
back to Montana where their sons Jim and Dave were born. In 1952 they moved
to Bainbridge where their three other children Steven, Christine and Michael
were born. In addition to raising five children Anne was a Girl Scout leader, active
in PEO and the PTA. Anne was also a longtime member of the Rolling Bay
Presbyterian church on Bainbridge singing in the church choir and teaching
Sunday school. During this time Anne and Jim also hosted some foster children. In
the mid 1960's, with her children still in school on Bainbridge, Anne went back to
college at Seattle University where she obtained her undergraduate degree
graduating with honors. Shortly thereafter she became a teacher in the
Bainbridge Island school district where she taught for more than thirty years
positively impacting the lives of so many.

Anne traveled with husband Jim throughout the world and also took solo trips
overseas with each of her eleven grandchildren when they turned the age of
twelve. She was an avid reader throughout her life and she and Jim also attended
academic classes at Oxford University in England. One of Anne's passions was
cooking and she became a fabulous gourmet cook. She also found time to obtain
her private pilot's license and flew family and friends around the Pacific
Northwest. Anne also was on the board of Helpline House. In addition to the

lifetime friendships forged as a longtime resident on Bainbridge, Anne also made
long lasting friendships from her and Jim’s annual winter gatherings in Palm
Springs, CA with fellow vacationers from throughout the US, Canada and England.
She loved family and friends most of all and demanded a family vacation trip
every summer while her children were growing up.

Anne was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 63 years Jim in 2012 and
her sister Patricia Moore Burlee in 2019. Anne is survived by her five children Jim
(Joanne), Dave (Kim), Steve, Christine (Jim) Edlund and Michael (Diane). Also
surviving are her nieces Jan Coleman O’Daniels (Bob), Pamela Burlee and Lynne
Burlee and eleven grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. Anne, a
remarkable woman, wonderful mother, aunt, grandmother, great grandmother,
friend and teacher who touched all she came in contact with in a positive way,
will be greatly missed.

A celebration of her life will be held at a later date on Bainbridge Island. Memorial
donations may be made to the charity of your choice. You are invited to view
