A celebration

of life

Billie Jo Day | May 27, 1981 - July 23, 2022

 

 

Many of you over the years have talked with BJ. She took on many roles for our company. She will be forever remembered.

 

The pride and joy of BJ's life was her family. Pat, her husband, Shelby her daughter, and Parker her son. She worked hard to enrich their lives and made sure they took annual family vacations. BJ saved up to take them on a trip to Disney one year, surprising them with the news at Christmas.

 

She also took pride and joy in her work family. BJ first started working for us as a high school intern over 20 years ago. At LL Johnson Lumber, she

 

worked hard to enrich the workday experience for all of us. From holiday parties, and monthly lunch celebrations, to sports night outings and cold drinks and ice cream for all on hot summer days. In the words of one employee, "BJ didn't see everyone as a collective, she saw us as individuals."

 

She worked hard to enrich our customers’ experience with our company, taking on our annual Wood Expo event to offer many woodworking presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on workshops for them. Nevertheless, BJ didn't stop there. She added exhibitor booths for customers to display and sell their work. She later added activities for children, including soap carving, toy building, and marshmallow catapults. An employee remembers BJ with Shelby and Parker at Expo. “She would smile whenever she saw them, or any kid enjoying the show.”

 

Organizing an annual Lansing Lugnuts' Game Outing for employees and their families was BJ's idea. As she loved fireworks, she always scheduled the outing for games that were followed by a beautiful fireworks display. And it just so happened that on the evening of her passing, LL Johnson employees gathered for her annual Lugnuts outing ...with dinner and fireworks.
