December 22, 1970 - April 2, 2022
Myshann Yolanda Austin Johnson, of Kissimmee, Florida was affectionately called (Shun) by family and friends, entered the sunset of life on Saturday April 2, 2022, at the Central Florida Kidney Center in Kissimmee, Florida. Myshann was born on Tuesday, December 22, 1970, in Orlando, Florida, the first of three children to Diane Veronica Reese. Myshann was preceded in death by her father, Wilbur David Lang, Paternal Grandparents David and Melba Lang, Uncle Ralph Lang, Aunts Bernice Lang, and Jean Ann, and sister Natasha Andrea Lang. Maternal grandfather Pollard Russell. Myshann was introduced to Christ at an early age. If you lived with Grandma Annie, you had to go to church. She was raised in Mt. Olive AME Church in Orlando Florida. She was educated in the Orange County public schools and graduated from Evans High School. Throughout school she held various jobs. Myshann worked at Dairy Queen for six months while in school. After graduating from high school, she moved to Jacksonville Florida, studied at Florida State College, and got a job at Burger King for one day to pay for a K -Ci and JoJo concert. Un be knowing to Grandma Annie, Myshann worked at Prudential Insurance Company. Grandma wasn’t too happy with her decision to work while in school and to take grandma’s mind off her working she told her “Look at my grades” she was a smart cookie! Myshann moved back to Orlando, Florida and studied at Valencia College where she majored in Information Technology and guess what; she went to work again. She worked at Winn Dixie for many years, there she met the love of her life Craig Johnson in 1995. Craig worked for an armored car company where he picked up and delivered monies; He asked her for her phone number, and she decided that she had better give him her correct number because she knew he would be picking up a delivery there the next day. From that point on, they were inseparable. As you well may know she continued to work at Winn Dixie and felt that she needed a better paying job and applied at Suntrust Bank. Back in the day we were accustomed to pagers, and she received a page notification from Suntrust Bank for a job interview; she was so excited. After her interview she was hired in the wire department. Myshann continued to work at both Suntrust Bank and Winn Dixie. She received multiple promotions at Suntrust Bank. Later she and twelve others would form a group called waiting to exhale (WTE), this group would consist of (Darlene, Lasonya, Mya, Charmaine, Stacey, JoJo, Jenny, Nicole, Lena, Lawanda, Tracy, and Tara). They shared so many beautiful moments together, sisters til the end. Myshann developed Congested Heart Failure and resigned from Winn Dixie; shortly thereafter she developed kidney disease and yet continued working with Suntrust Bank until she was no longer able. Some of Myshann hobbies were couponing; if you needed a coupon for almost anything, all you had to do was call Myshann, she knew where all the sales were. She was given the great name “Coupon Queen” by her mother - in -law. She loved solving puzzles, a great mathematician, afraid of flying but once introduced she couldn’t wait for the next destination; Myshann loved to travel. Her favorite spot was Las Vegas where her passion was playing the slot machines. On many occasions when traveling to Fort Lauderdale, Myshann fellowshipped with the St. John United Methodist Church under the Pastoralship of Dr. Simon Osunlana, before he was reassigned in Jacksonville Florida at the beginning of the pandemic. Myshann had a loving heart. She was a great affectionate mother, self sufficient, reliable, sweet, fearsome, determined, and feisty at times if need be. She was an awesome wife to and for husband Craig, A wife who along with husband took their vows serious enough that Craig realized that he had found a good thing and found favor with God. A wife he left his father and mother and clung to in health and in sickness, through good and hard times. He along side son Craig II, made the ultimate sacrifice of taking care of her to the very end. She called those who were praying for her and gave thanks. She shared with her mother - in -law that as soon as she was up again, she would find her a church home in the Kissimmee or Orlando area; but in the meantime she fellowshipped with St. John United Methodist Church in Fort Lauderdale, FL under the Pastoralship of Rev. Pierre Exantus by way of Facebook, when she was able. She fought the good fight of faith. Having been on dialysis she did so well that she was removed from dialysis for over two years, but unfortunately, she had to go back on. She remained diligent and fervent in prayer; and decided on April 2, 2022, that the battle was no longer hers but the lord’s. In the words of her husband Craig “she sneakily slept away” after eating a blueberry muffin and taken to the dialysis center. She said, “Enough is Enough, I’ve run my course, I have finished the race!” She leaves to celebrate her legacy: A loving and devoted Husband: Craig Johnson I of Kissimmee, FL; sons: Deshaun Hall of Orlando, FL, Craig Johnson II of Kissimmee, FL; Grandchildren: Sunni Hall of Fort Lauderdale, FL, Bailey and Miles Hall of Orlando, FL; Mother: Diane Reese of Orlando, FL; Siblings: Maurice Collins, and Elgen Reese of Orlando, FL, Wilbur Lang the 2nd of Tallahassee, FL, Lentard Lowe of Atlanta, GA, Latard Lowe (Faquedah) of Zellwood, FL, Sharonda Crawford of Pahokee, FL, Nicole Lang of Apopka, FL; Grandmother: Annie C.
