Blessed with family and friends

05-01-13 RFL Hononary Chair Marilyn Johnson

You might not recognize Marilyn Johnson by name, but you probably recognized her smile.

She has been a mainstay at Buckeye Community Federal Credit Union for the past 40 years where she seems to always be in motion–tossing out a friendly “hello” in the front lobby or asking about your family as she runs from department to department.

Looking at her today, you wouldn’t guess that just over a year ago Johnson faced the devastating news that she had breast cancer.

Monday night, Johnson shared her cancer story during this year’s Relay For Life Survivors Banquet held at Crosspoint Baptist Church.
