Carolyn (Phillips) JOHNSON Obituary
JOHNSON (Phillips), Carolyn Carolyn Phillips Johnson, born in Kelleytown, Georgia on June 15, 1919, to Joel A. and Pierce Owen Phillips, went to be with her Heavenly Father on November 8, 2017. She was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, and most importantly, Gran. Carolyn is survived by her children, Bob and Nevelle Johnson, Beth and George Mitchell, Cathy and Malcolm McCoy; eleven grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren; her sister, Evelyn Elliott; and multiple nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband of almost 50 years, Herbert Lee Johnson. Throughout her life, she was a devoted, active member of Kelley Presbyterian Church, then Capitol View Presbyterian Church and Eastminster Presbyterian Church. Carolyn served her entire family, church, and community selflessly. After years of working as a civil servant at Fort McPherson, Georgia, she became a homemaker and assisted with her husband's building business as she raised her three children. As the baby of 12 children, Carolyn influenced and cared for many family members throughout her life. Nothing was more important to her than her faith and her family. Her passion for cooking and caring is a legacy she has left to her children and grandchildren. Visitation will be held Friday, November 10th, from 6:00-8:00 pm at the funeral home. The Funeral Service will be held at Cannon Cleveland Funeral Directors on Saturday, November 11th at 11:00 am, followed by interment at Kelley Presbyterian Church. In lieu of flowers, you may make donations to the River Place Special Account, a Memorial Fund for Carolyn Johnson's Assisted Living home, 3492 Johnstonville Rd, Forsyth GA 31029.
