Did your Mom ever teach first grade at Riley Elementary? That was my first grade teacher´s name. If so, she was so pretty & I can still remember her. Strangely, I believe your Dad, Gus Johnson, taught me government one summer. Both were great teachers!

Mrs Johnson was such a lovely person. Her love for God & others radiated out for all to see. What a life well lived. I am so thankful for the sweet girls she raised & their impact on my life as our paths crossed at Vineville Baptist.

Mrs. Johnson was my First Grade teacher at Alexander II. I am saddened to hear of her passing. The memories of her caring and sweet demeanor will forever be embedded in my mind. I extend my deepest sympathies to her family and friends during this time of bereavement.
