Our mother, Susie Locklear Johnson transitioned peacefully from this mortal earthly existence into that glorious resting place on Wednesday morning November 24, 2021 with her family and pastor gathered around her those last final hours of her life. She loved us all immensely.
We each have our own special memories of mama. Oh, how she loved to sing and wrote several songs and poems. Mama often sang with her church choir for many years, and enjoyed singing her own songs to anyone who would listen, her also recited her heartfelt poetry. Mama spoke with wisdom and faithful instruction on her tongue. She displayed and embodied so much strength, courage and great dignity. Whatever her challenges she was dealt she faced with a mighty strength and grace all because of her unwavering faith in God and Jesus Christ. She inspired us all and will continue to until we see her smiling face once again. What a treasured blessing enriched not only our family but countless others as well. If you ever had the pleasure of sitting with her listened to her testimonials in words or in song then you were in the presence of a truly remarkable angel. On this day we honor the life of one magnificent lady, our mother and grandmother, whom we adored. Our hearts ache to hear her voice again, for her to tell us stories, recite poetry, play piano, harmonica and listen to beautiful sweet songs about Jesus. How amazingly blessed we have been to have known you, loved you and treasure you in our life’s, in our homes and in our hearts. How we will miss you so, so much. We love you mama and know you will watch over us all until we meet again.
