Survivor Stories / Tributes

Sammie Johnson

Personal Description:


Its been almost 2 years and we still can’t believe that you are gone. Feb. 14, 2008 a part of us left with you. There is not a day that goes by and you’re not thought of or missed. Although we know that you are in a better place, free from pain and misery, we can’t help but to miss you and want you here with us.
Our rock, Our Strength is Gone but she will never ever be forgotten.
Nov. 6, 1948 – Feb. 14, 2008

Personal Description:

Sammie Johnson could enter a dark room and light it up with her smile. She was the loving wife of Eddie Johnson and the mother of 7 children, Eddie Jr., Stacey, Stephanie, Daniel, Lyonel, Elizabeth, and Raphael. She lived each day for her family making sure that no matter what, their needs would always be met. She loved unconditionally and helped within the community and church because she believed that your work and your life should speak for you. She was also an advocate for children, and would go to their defense no matter where she was or who she had to go up against. She touched so many lives in a positive light and is truly missed by us all.
