Obituary for Millicent N. Johnson

Surrounded by her family, on Sunday, September 11th at 8:00pm, God knelt down and picked his precious flower, Millicent, from this garden of life and nestled her in a place where her leaves will not wither, her petals will not fall, and she could enjoy her rest with Him forever.
Millicent was born on March 20, 1918 to the late Frederick and Catherine “Kiffie” Quarles Nickerson in Amelia County, Virginia. She was educated in the Amelia County School system and graduated in the second graduating class of Russell Grove High School.
Millicent was a wonderful mother, grandma, aunt, cousin, and friend. She was affectionately called “Mill, Mama, Grandma, Mill-Mill, and Aunt Millie” by family and friends. She loved being with and helping people and always opened her house to guest. She was a great cook, seamstress, baker, nurse, and an all around Christian lady. She was good with her hands at arts, crafts, and painting. She was especially proud of the yarn pouches she made that contained a cross and prayer that she happily shared with family, friends, or whoever she met along her way.
She confessed Christ at an early age and was baptized at the St. James Baptist Church where she remained a member for many years. Later, she joined the Pilgrim Baptist Church and served as a faithful member and for years, was the oldest member of the church. Millicent served in many capacities at the church, such as Deaconess, choir member, usher, Willing Workers Club, and Women’s Missionary.

She is preceded in death by her sister, Sylvia Brown Booker, her oldest son, Spencer “Bunny” Johnson, Jr., her nephew, Horace “Bobby” Booker, Jr., and her daughter-in-law, Rev. Odell V. Johnson.
