Nikki Johnson Obituary

Nikki Jane (Payne) Johnson was born on May 10, 1972, in Caldwell, ID and passed away at home in Umatilla, OR on March 9, 2024. She grew up in Parma, ID and moved around often before settling down in Umatilla County.
Nikki enjoyed being outdoors, taking photos, fishing, and walking on the beach. Some of her favorite memories were riding on the back of a motorcycle and taking her children to see Keiko at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. She was dedicated and hard-working. Nikki also had a passion for animals which led to her job as the store manager of Pet Sense in Hermiston, Oregon. She was devoted to her family, friends and especially her many grandchildren, who were her world.

Nikki was preceded in death by her father, Merlin J. Payne, stepfather, Gary Hurd and husband, James Johnson. 

She is survived by her mother: M. Elaine Hurd, sisters: Lynette Barthel and Noel Payne, her brother: Fred Payne, life partner: Sean McClure, children: Stephanie, Michelle, Courtney, Sammi, Dylan, James, and Tia; as well as her twelve grandchildren and many nieces, nephews, and chosen family.
