Obituary

Joan Morgan Johnson, 66, of Hagerstown, MD, passed away, Sunday, July 3, 2022, at Doey's House after a long battle with cancer.

Born October 23, 1955 in Englewood, NJ, she was the daughter of the late David Morgan and the late Jean (Lawrence) Morgan.

Joan graduated from Boyertown High School in Boyertown, PA in 1973. She later attended West Chester University and then graduated from Towson State University with her B.A. in 1977. After graduation, she worked as an editor for the Parkville Reporter and Belair Road Booster in Baltimore, MD. She then went on to receive her master’s degree in English from Shippensburg University in 1994, and started her teaching career as an adjunct English professor at Hagerstown Community College (HCC) in 1994, later becoming a full time professor in 1999. From 2006 to 2012, she served as the Division Chair for the English and Humanities Division. During her academic career, Joan also co-chaired two state writing committees and was named HCC Distinguished Faculty of the Year in 2018. She was named Emeritus Professor in 2018 following her retirement that year. 

Joan was a voracious reader and writer, as well as an avid promoter of the arts and served on the Washington County Arts Council for many years. She was a devoted teacher and took great satisfaction from her work, especially the camaraderie she found with her HCC colleagues. Committed to teaching the humanities in a way that broke down barriers, she encouraged her students to expand their horizons through critical thinking. She adored her 6 grandchildren, and could frequently be found playing laser tag from the living room couch with them on a Saturday afternoon or sharing with them her unabashed fondness for the video game Zelda. 


She is survived by her husband of 41 years, James David Johnson, Jr.; her children, Christopher Johnson (Anne) of Baltimore, MD, Anne Johnson (Krystian Dudzinski) of Halifax, NS, Canada and Catherine Leigh Johnson (Rick Stoddard) of Silver Spring, MD; and six grandchildren: Josephine Stoddard, James Stoddard, Jack Stoddard, Mia Dudzinski, Zoe Dudzinski, and Owen Johnson. She is also survived by five siblings, as well as numerous beloved nieces and nephews, extended family, and many close friends. She was preceded in death by one sister. 

Memorial services will be held Friday, July 22, 2022, at 11:30 am, at the Douglas A. Fiery Funeral Home, 1331 Eastern Blvd. North Hagerstown, MD. Family will receive friends at the funeral home before the service on Friday, July 22, 2022 from 10:30 am to 11:30 am.

An informal reception celebrating her life will follow on Saturday, July 23, 2022. 

Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the HCC Foundation, 11400 Robinwood Drive, Hagerstown, MD 21742 or Hospice of Washington County 1710 Underpass Way, Suite 300, Hagerstown, MD 21740.

Joan was always such fun to be around; she had strong opinions but that didn't matter if you disagreed with her. She was my Dept. Chair for several years and I never had a better Chair than her. And she was very fond of Bomber, our special yellow lab, who was with me in the office on a daily basis. I will miss her very much, and am so glad i stopped by to chat a few weeks ago.

Dear Johnson Family, Joan loved her family. Loved her students at HCC and was passionate about teaching and helping those in need. Thoughts and prayers with all! Jim, please know that our family is thinking of you and your family. We have been so grateful for your good guidance and friendship. Prayers and hugs, Alice and Scott Barr John and Ed Patterson.

I’m so very sorry for your loss. Joan was an incredible friend and compatriot. We spent many hours solving the world’s problems, and laughing ourselves and life in general. I’ll never forget our many trips to the PA Ren. Faire. I’ll miss you, Joan. My world isn’t the same without you.

Joan was an incredible faculty member and professional, through and through. I got to know her while working at HCC and she always had encouraging words and a beautiful smile! My heart goes out to her family, friends and all of the students whose lives she touched.

To Jim and Family: May God grant you peace in this time of grief. It is indeed a privilege to have worked at HCC with such a fine, dedicated and caring educator as Joan johnson. She will be missed.

We remember Joan as warm and friendly-first getting to know her as a parent on the soccer field sidelines, and later as a board member of the Washington County Arts Council. She was fiercely intelligent and knowledgeable, and contributed greatly to the arts in the community. Sympathies to the Johnson family. Susanne & Rick Kass

Know that family and friends are always there for you, to comfort you, to get you through these painful and difficult times.
