On April 25, 2021 Claire Charmaine Loudenslager McDonald Johnson class of 1958 was taken home to be with her Lord.
Born in Detroit and nearly a lifelong resident of the Lansing, MI area, Charmaine touched all whom she came in contact with, her joyous personality and compassionate heart knew no bounds. Her love for travel, bingo and animals defined her better than any words. Charmaine spent most of her career at the Ingham County Prosecutor’s Office and the Michigan Court of Appeals. In 1995, a job transfer to the Detroit area with the Court of Appeals is where she met her forever confidant and husband Matt. Soon after, she retired and worked part time as a Court Reporter and enjoyed worshiping at Faith Covenant Church and St. Timothy Presbyterian Church.
Preceded in death by parents Clare and Ginger Loudenslager, sister Sharon (Jake) Savercool. Remembered forever by husband Matt Johnson, sister Dawn (Ron) McDaniel, children Melani (Tom) Roberts, Robert (Michelle) McDonald, Steven (Heather) McDonald, and Shannon (Dan) Mittag, grandchildren Jordan (Patrick) English, Ross McDonald, Samantha (James) Tomasch, Paige McDonald, Benjamin Roberts, Tyler (Samantha) Roberts, and Jalen Burns, great grandchildren Bryce, Kelly and Shea English, and Colton Tomasch. As well as in-laws Marvin and Kathi Johnson, Karna (Russ) Chrusciel, Bjorn (Heather) Johnson, nieces Emma, Annika, Sadie and Lucy Chrusciel and nephews Hunter and Brock Johnson.
