Emma Johnson was our sweet, kind neighbor who we loved dearly. She was very special to our entire family and always made us smile.

We affectionally called her Mrs. Johnson. She celebrated with us on all spring and summer holidays and it was always an honor to have her come to our house to visit. She had an Easter bunny that she treasured since she was a little girl and we loved seeing her with it every Easter and wearing her red, white and blue for July Fourth.

Mrs. Johnson loved the outdoors and was often seen walking for her exercise. You could always find her going to church Sunday morning, mowing her lawn Sunday afternoon or Monday morning. She was always so active and even after breaking her leg and having to use a walker, she picked up acorns and leaves and put into a bucket that was attached to her walker. Always active and busy!

She was 'the keeper of our house keys' and helped us in many ways to keep an eye on our lake house.

Our wonderful memories bring peace and comfort to our hearts for just knowing and loving this beautiful, kind lady. Heaven has gained a special, beautiful angel.

Heaven gained another angel in Aunt Emma. She and Uncle Syd had always lived close by my whole life. They lived down the street at the lake house and across the street from us growing up in the Grove. I am going to miss her, and her hugs dearly. I Loved sitting and having a margarita with her on the back porch, or out by the lake on the 4th of Julys watching the airshow! Every weekend that we were there I would catch up with all that was going on in the neighborhood and family. She definitely kept us all informed! She always wanted to help and would do anything for us if she could. RIP Aunt Emma and give Mom, Dad, Uncle Syd, and Granny Johnson a big hug for me!💕

We will all miss Aunt Emma. She was the one who knew what was going on in the family. She always kept up with her nieces & nephews. She reminded us of the family reunions.
