Johnson, Gina De Fatti (28 JAN 1974 - 8 DEC 2013)

Gina Del Fatti Johnson, 39, Greenwood, passed away at her home on Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m., on Friday, Dec. 13, at Our Savior's Lutheran Church, Greenwood. Rev. Brian Campbell will officiate. Visitation will be held at the church on Friday from noon until time of services.

Gina Del Fatti was born on Jan. 28, 1974, in Marshfield, the daughter of Matt and Diane (nee Podevels) Del Fatti. She was raised and received her education in Greenwood, graduating from Greenwood High School in 1992, and then attending Chippewa Valley Technical College for one year. Gina married Trent M. Johnson on Jan. 6, 1993, in Neillsville. She operated a day care at her home from 1994-2004, caring for the children of many of the Greenwood families. When grown, those children frequently came back to visit and reminisce about those "day care" days and what was happening in their lives. In 2004, she went to work for her father at Del Fatti Leather. She was her dad's "Right Hand Man" and was highly regarded by customers around the world for her bright personality and knowledge of the company's custom work. Gina was a member of Our Savior's Lutheran Church. She had many interests, but especially loved spending time with her kids and family, and gardening.

She will be dearly missed by her husband, Trent, Greenwood; three children, Taylan Michaela Johnson, Rylie Mattea Johnson, and Jaeger Anthony Del Fatti Johnson; her parents, Matt and Diane Del Fatti, Greenwood; one sister, Angela (Jacob) Del Fatti-Kirchner, and their children, Brooklyn, Cannon and Miranda, Little Chute; her beloved in-laws, Michael and Shirley Johnson, Eric (Kathy Rachu) Johnson, Amy (Josh) Vollrath, Tinker (Penny) Johnson, Luke (Lara) Johnson, Kallie Johnson, Kasey (Jordan Klingbeil) Johnson, and "Grandma S'More" Amber Johnson; her maternal grandparents, Jr. and Evie Podevels, Colby; her Godparents, Ricky and Donna Podevels, Bob and Loni Klinke, and Tony and Mary Del Fatti; and aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and many close and dear friends.

Gina was preceded in death by one brother, Harvey Del Fatti; and her paternal grandparents, Harvey and Mary Del Fatti.

In lieu of fl owers, the family asks that memorials be given in Gina's honor to be used for her children's education which she so highly valued.
