March 24, 1955 — May 18, 2021

Amy Crane Johnson, age 66 of Green Bay, passed away at home surrounded by her loving family on Tuesday, May 18, 2021. Born March 24, 1955 in Green Bay to the late Edward and Lucille (Huben) Crane, she married Bruce Johnson on May 2, 1975, at St. Jude Church. Known as a “hockey mom and grandma” for her son and grandson, she was also involved in many arts and writing groups and will be deeply missed by her family and many friends.

Author of several children’s books, poetry, and short stories, she also wrote award-winning video and radio scripts. An editor for Raventree Press, she also freelanced in advertising for corporate and professional sports teams.
