Glenda Wood Johnson

August 12, 1950March 15, 2020

Glenda Wood Johnson, 69, died unexpectedly Sunday, March 15, of a heart attack.

She was a daughter of the late James Glenn Wood and Margaret McLeay Wood.

Her family was the most important part of her life. Among her greatest joys were spending time with her two granddaughters and exercising a grandmother's prerogative of spoiling them whenever she had the chance. She loved to cook for her family and make excursions to the mountains with her husband and their daughters and their families. In her spare time, she was an avid gardener, loved visiting with friends, and always extended a helping hand to people in need. She was a graduate of Athens High School Class of 1969.

Surviving are her husband of 50 years, Marvin H. Johnson, Bogart; daughters, Angie Johnson Brooks, Bogart, and Brandi Johnson Herndon (Adrian), Watkinsville; granddaughters, Athena Brooks, Emmie Herndon and Whitney Herndon; sister, Rosemary Wood, Athens; sisters-in-law, Sarah Poole, Augusta, Shirley Short (Ken), Monroe, Dianne Finger, Watkinsville, and Carol Wood, Danielsville; brother-in-law Patrick McCafferty, Chico, CA; and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her brother, John H. Wood, and her sister, Vonnie Wood McCafferty.

In the interest of public health concerns, a memorial service will be announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her honor may be designated to ESP, 189 VFW Drive, Watkinsville, GA 30677 or online at https://extraspecialpeople.com/memorial/

I have childhood memories of Glenda. We both lived and grew up in the same area, off of the Whitehead Road in Athens. She lived a couple of roads away from my home. We went to the same grade school, junior high and then graduated from Athens High School. We rode the same school bus. We had some of the same friends while growing up. Although we lost contact with each other over the years. The picture of her in the paper brought back memories of our younger years, I could even go back in my memory bank and remember when her and Marvin were dating and ended up marrying. I know she will be missed and remembered by old and new friends as well as by her family. My prayers and sympathy are with her family and to let them know that even though I have not seen her in years I have some good memories of knowing her when we were younger. May you always keep her in your hearts and know that those of us who knew her will always remember her as a friend that we shared our younger days and memories with. Etta Pierce Roberts
