Born in Eldred Township, Pa., Johanos was a classically trained pianist and worked as a real estate broker. She was the first Phi Beta Kappa night school graduate from the University of Hawaii.

She is survived by husband Donald; daughters Linda Delbridge and Leslie Brown; son Thomas Rutledge; stepdaughters Jennifer, Thea and Eve; stepson Andrew M. Johanos; mother Roma Mae Snyder; sisters Barbara Beam and Susan Seiler; brother Chester Snyder Jr.; and eight grandchildren.
