Theresa Johnston, 58

Theresa Johnston, 58, Villisca, entered eternal rest on Monday, Oct. 24, 2022, at Creighton University Medical Center-Bergan Mercy in Omaha, Neb.
Theresa Ann Johnston, the daughter of Kenneth and Shirley (Hogsett) Gulick, was born May 17, 1964, in Kansas City, Mo. She attended school in Villisca before graduating from Villisca High School with the class of 1982. After high school, Theresa attended IWCC in Creston.
She met the love of her life, Mark Johnston, and they were united in marriage on May 20, 1989, in Villisca. Together they have three children, Casey, Jodie and Brooke.
Theresa worked at VGSC for a short time before providing daycare in her own home. In 2001, she began what turned into a life long career of Satellite Communications that has grown into a multi-faceted operation. Her business initially started in her own home where her business has grown and remains at her current location in Villisca as well as an office in Shenandoah. Johnston Communications is a very successful, organized business that strives for customer service and satisfaction. This has been demonstrated by her as well as her trusted and dedicated staff. Her staff were more than just employees, they were also her family. Johnston Communications has received multiple awards demonstrating her professional services.
Theresa had a deep love for her family and friends. She loved having family over for football parties (Kansas City Chiefs was one of her favorites), spending time with her 10 grandchildren, family and friends. She was very kind, compassionate, caring and a selfless person who went out of her way to help everyone. She will be greatly missed!
