Lorna Johnson was 56 when she passed away and her funeral has made the news for it’s unique display of humor in light of a serious situation. Her son Neil Johnson described his mother with the following words:

“She classed herself as a white witch and was into the tarot readings and that sort of thing.”

“My mum’s favourite time of year was Halloween. We always had parties, dressed up, decorated the house. The kids loved it, we loved it. It was something we always did.”

This explains why both Darth Vader and Beetlejuice were in attendance at her funeral. The Luton, UK grandmother was diagnosed with lung cancer in October of 2014, and died in June of this year. She left behind four children and 10 grandchildren; her husband died in November. Co-op Funeralcare funeral director Brett Houghton led the service dressed as Darth Vader. R.I.P Lorna you went out in your own special style.

My mum’s always said you need to celebrate, you need to have a party. So we’re not going to sit around feeling sorry for ourselves. My mum wouldn’t want that.”

“She would have been well up for it, it’s the type of person she was. She always wanted a party.”

We’ve had a good life as a family. Our mum and dad were something else. We’re proud to be who we are and to be their children.”
