After completing her education in the Dinwiddie County Public School system, she worked various jobs and held many titles, among them, wife and mother, eventually retiring from the Virginia United Methodist Assembly Center. She was as passionate about her baking as she was with spending time with and caring for her family.

Johnson, two grandchildren, Rhaman and Kyle, of New Jersey; two brothers, Eddie and Preston Spicely of Wilsons, VA; three sisters, Hilda Bower, Vivian Walker, both of Colonial Heights, VA and Edwina Clarke of Hopewell, VA; brother and sisters-in-law, Fred Walker, Arlean and Millie Spicely, and Ruth Mikeal; and a host of nephews, nieces - some calling her Mom and Grandma, and other relatives and friends.
