was Aunt Johnnie to scores of nieces, nephews, grand nieces and grand
nephews.
 
She was active in Bible Baptist Church of Marietta and its
mission work, helping those in need and providing a variety of support
activities. Miss Johnnie was able to find anything anyone needed, from
a replacement bolt to a toy for a child to reading glasses to a spare
coat for someone cold, in the cavernous trunk of her car. She called
providing for others her ‘work.’ She loved gardening and flowers and
taught this love to her grandchildren. As in Proverbs 31:28, ‘Her
children arise and call her blessed…’
