Somewhere in the soft, quiet night, just as daylight dimmed the lights on Sunday, October 13, 2019, our angel took a divine flight.
Marilyn Johnson was that angel, born to the late Robert and Hallie Mae Dubose Johnson on December 06, 1956, in Greenville, South Carolina, her journey began, and life will give her many facets to hold.
Marilyn’s life was a living example of 1Peter 3:4-“Rather, it should be that of your inner beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”
Marilyn attended Berea High School. She was an employee of J. P. Stevens (Parker Plant) for some 20-plus years. Her last four years of employment were at the House of Raeford where she was a shipping and receiving clerk.
Marilyn’s walk with the Lord began at Mount Sinai Baptist Church; there she was baptized and served as a greeter. Marilyn spent many of her last years of life serving Christ at The Tree of Life E & M Baptist Church.
Her most precious memories will forever linger and comfort her son, Cedric D. Johnson. Precious memories will flood the souls of her sisters, Linda D. Calhoun of Atlanta, GA and Gloria D. Mackey of Greenville, SC. In the stillness of the night precious memories will unfold much wisdom to her grandchildren, Michael D. Ware, Datreona D. Johnson and Kameron Clark-Johnson; great grandchild, Adonai D. Jackson; an aunt, Jessie M. Dubose.
Precious memories will send a soft-spoken prayer to a very special niece and caregiver, Charity Mackey and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins and friends.
Our angel Marilyn can now rest her golden wings in peace, her flight is over now. Free from illness and pain, waiting for the day we are together once again.
