Predeceased by her husband Richard Oja; parents Vikki and Saima Wallsten. She is survived by niece Diane Wilson and nephew in law Jim Wilson; nephews Charles Wallsten (June) and Paul Wallsten; grand nieces and nephews.
Born in Helsinki, Finland on July 5th, 1914, she came to Canada with her family in 1929. They settled in Windsor before moving to Kirkland Lake. Johana lived a rich life according to her interests. She was a member of the Kirkland Lake Art Club and enjoyed walking and painting the trails around her home in Boston Creek.
She loved growing plants and vegetables which reflected her name “Sunny”. At one point she grew corn which was much taller than she was.
Cremation will take place. Interment will be at the Kirkland Lake Cemetery. According to her wishes, no celebration of life will be held.
The family would like to thank the staff at Extendicare in Kirkland Lake for all their kindness and superior care they have shown this special lady.
