Johnna Kay Belz, age 78, passed away February 20, 2022, in Bend, Oregon, at The Hospice House, comforted by her two daughters, who will forever love and miss her, and the wonderful staff at The Hospice House.
She was born March 30, 1943, in Lewiston, Idaho, to Owen and Maythelle Howard. Johnna graduated from Lewiston High School in 1961. She was married to Fred Bushong for 20 years, and they had two daughters, Patty and Cindy. The young family lived in Lewiston, Idaho, Eugene, Eagle Point and Medford and on Guam, before settling in Prineville.
She worked in Prineville for more than 30 years at a local molding mill, until she retired in 2008 at the age of 65. Johnna married Dick Belz on August 1, 2008, in Pioneer Park, in Bend. She enjoyed classic car club activities with him and enjoyed keeping their yard beautiful and flower gardening, until her health restricted her from those activities.
