Joseph S. Johns

Posted on October 30, 2018

The Foundation mourns the passing of former Marysville mayor Joseph Simon Johns.

Joseph graduated from Marysville High School in 1940 and went on to serve in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He was employed with Anker Holth Manufacturing for 50 years, retiring as Vice President. 

He was one of the state’s longest serving public officials, serving the city of Marysville for 55 years, 12 as mayor and 43 on the city council. Joseph was also very active at his church, Marysville United Methodist, and with the American Legion as well as the executive boards of the area Girl Scout council and the Council on Aging for St. Clair County.

“He loved the city of Marysville, and he loved to serve,” said his daughter, Kathy Hayman.

Memorials can be made to the Marysville Endowment Fund through the Community Foundation of St. Clair County. Please make checks payable to Community Foundation and put Johns Memorial in the memo line.
