  1. I send my condolences to Johnnie’s husband, daughter, sisters, and brothers. Johnnie was a member of our Enka High School Class of ’57 graduation class. We have talked with one another at class reunions over the years. I recall how lovely she looked in her red dress at our last reunion. May God bless and keep Johnnie, and may God bless you, her family, and her friends.

  2. I am very sorry to hear the news that another member of our class of ’57 is no longer with us. Johnnie will always be remembered by our class. Our prayers are with you.

  3. I was very sorry to hear that Johnnie had passed away. I last saw her, after 40 years, about 4 years ago, still a beautiful lady, someone that I had always admired and respected.
    I extend my condolences to her husband and family and know that Heaven has another Angel.

  4. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Johnnie is a part of my growing up days on Beaverdam. Her grandparents, parents, and sisters were all a part of that time. I am thinking of you.

  5. Johnnie i’m sorry that i never got the pleasure of meeting You.My dearest Vickey talked about You all the time,She loved You so very much and She never got over the grief of You leaving this world.I spent 4 wonderfull years with Your daughter.Words cannot express how much I miss Her now that She has joined You in heaven. I pray that The Holy Spirit has both of you under His Glorious wings. I love You both.
