Sincere Sympathy. Doris Fields, HISD

To the Family of Mrs. Johnson,

I am receiving this news via internet as I am currently in Rome, Italy and regret I could not personally attend the service. I was a student at Southland Elementary (Ruby L. Thompson) when Mrs. Johnson was the Principal there. She loved her students and, more importantly, she fostered close relationships with their parents. Until this very day, I can remember the conversations we had from both a student and parental standpoint. We were all blessed to...

Mrs. Johnson was a very good Principal and a good person. I am sorry for the passing of your mother, mother-in-law and grand mother.

You have my Prayers

Billie Joe was my good friend. One time I visited her school and she said she wanted something to do in her spare time. I told her about my wedding business and the need for a coordinator for the bridal ceremonies She bought a book and learned how to do it and coordinated my weddings for several years. She brought Mrs. Harrison along to help her. They did a wonderful job and you know it was professional if Billie Jo was doing it. She was a wonderful person with a beautiful personality. ...

Mrs. Johnson was that rare type of Educator that genuinely cared about the students in her charge. She cared for and loved her staff as well, often calling us the children she never had and treated us as such. She will be sorely missed. Rest in Paradise my love....

Billie was my second cousin but she was my inspiration to become a teacher. I looked forward to Christmas because I knew that she would give me some sort of educational workbook. It was only a short time ago that we talked and your voice was weak. Rest now Billie.
