Virginia Gilmore "Gemo" Johnson

Ft. Walton Beach, FL

Virginia Gilmore "Gemo" Johnson passed away at home with her daughters by her side on Tuesday, February 21, 2017. She will join her loving husband of 48 years Malla and her parents Ottis B. and Virginia Lois Gilmore in Heaven.

She is survived by her daughters, Malaina Ann Johnson and Leigh J. Rice and husband, Brian and her grandsons, Evan and Eric Rice whom she loved dearly!

She is survived by her sister, Betty Lyon and husband Bob of Richmond, Virginia and their children and many family members from Tallahassee, Florida.

Virginia was born in Pontotoc, Mississippi and also lived in Holly Springs. She moved to Fort Walton Beach, Florida after graduating from MSCW because of teaching opportunities opening up in the area. She was hired immediately at Annette P. Edwins Elementary and taught there for an amazing forty years. She touched the hearts and lives of many children throughout her teaching years.

Virginia was a member of Delta Kappa Gamma. She loved to travel when she could and play bridge with her dear friends. She loved flowers and red birds. Most of all, she loved her family and was an amazing wife, mother and "GooMa". (Grandmother)
