She is survived by two sons, Rick (Paula) Johnson, David "Hoss" (Lisa, deceased) Johnson; daughter, Melanie (Bill) Lockard; and sister, Jeannie Lewis. Linda had twenty-two grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Cotton Johnson. She was employed by Huntsville City Schools and served as the secretary at Butler High School for 25 years. Mrs. Johnson was a faithful member and servant of Friendship Baptist Church in Huntsville. She organized the Community Watch program in her neighborhood and recognized for her leadership and contributions. She loved to gather with her friends over meal times and enjoyed organizing reunions for the retired teachers of Butler High School. The students, faculty and administration of Butler had a special place in her heart. For many years she was the sponsor for the Butler High School cheerleaders, and maintained lifelong relationships with them. Every Saturday night she would be found watching Charles Stanley, Mike Huckabee and the Gaither Homecoming Music on television. Her great love was her family – her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was known for her genuine love for people, a sense of humor, joy and laughter, and serving others. Mrs. Johnson was a patriot and loved America. Her legacy is a godly life, a love for Christ and God's Word, faithfulness, serving in her local church, caring for her friends, and influencing her children and many others to know and love the Lord. She will be greatly missed by many people. The family will receive friends on Sunday, December 22, 4-7 p.m., at West Huntsville Baptist Church.

This will help him and she would like that the most. They are at www.scoreintl.org.

Not sure what to say?

I'm so sorry I didn't see this until today. Linda was my grandmother's (Rose Cunningham) best friend when she worked at Butler High School. Then I taught just across the hall from her grandson, Tyler, at Huntsville High! What a sweet, sweet lady. God Bless her and her family. ❤

As a former teacher at Butler High School, I know firsthand how faculty and students alike all loved Linda Johnson. She was a servant to one and all. She seemed to know Everybody and her kindness and patience were so refreshing.
What I miss most about Butler High School would have to be Linda Johnson. To her family, I know you're hurting, but be assured the wonderful memories and influence of "Miss Linda" will be a great source of strength and encouragement from now on...

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
