Phyllis Jean Johnson, 82, of Billings, peacefully passed away on Tuesday, December 3, 2019 at Billings Clinic Hospital, surrounded by loved ones.
Phyllis was born on November 16, 1937 to Philip and Katherine (Lang) Reiner. Though born in North Dakota, she grew up in Kline, Montana, with her sisters, Shirley and Artis.
A loving wife and mother, she married Eddy Johnson in 1960 and together they raised five children, Howard Lee, Carolyn, Tina, Philip and Ellery.
There are 15 grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren.
Though she held various jobs throughout her life, Phyllis was a dedicated full-time mother to her children and a constant support to her husband and to the extended family.
She especially enjoyed get-togethers with family and friends and always had everyone laughing with her great sense of humor. Phyllis enjoyed baking up scrumptious cinnamon rolls and bread for all.
She was never reluctant to pitch in with the tough jobs like putting on a new roof. Phyllis was fond of outdoor activities and traveling with Eddy and the kids (but she did not care for boats).
Phyllis was an avid and accomplished bowler winning many trophies. She loved reading and carried a book wherever she went. One of her favorite things in life was sitting on a riverbank with a fishing pole and a book.
Phyllis was a generous donor to many charities. In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be sent to the Billings Food Bank, one of her favorites.
Phyllis has gone home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus, but she will be sorely missed by everyone who knew her.
Services will be held at 1:00 PM, on Saturday, December 14 at Smith West Chapel with interment of the urn at Terrace Gardens Cemetery. A reception will follow at the chapel. Condolences may be shared at

Good-bye, Aunt Phyllis. I'll miss the way we laughed on the phone over our wry observations about life. My adult kids remember that fishing trip many years ago. I'll be looking for you when it is my turn to cross over. Thanks for everything you have been to us. Condolences to Uncle Ed and my four cousins from your relatives in Poulsbo, Washington: Ellen Mae & husband, Larry Blain, and brother, John Lang.
