Lyn was born on January 17, 1944, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and moved to Greenwood, South Carolina, with her parents Avis and E.D. Law, Jr. soon after. She graduated from Greenwood High School and Converse College. Lyn was an active member of Vineville United Methodist Church where she attended the Allen Sanders Sunday School class, served in the handbell choir for over 20 years, tutored students at L.H. Williams, and was a mentor through the mentoring program. She was also a member of the Potpourri Garden Club, Happy Booker’s Book Club, and a former member of the Macon Junior League. Lyn was a skilled and creative seamstress and a champion bridge player, achieving the rank of Life Master. She loved playing tennis with her husband and friends. Lyn enjoyed dancing, especially the South Carolina Shag, and was an avid reader. She loved the outdoors, especially hiking in the North Carolina mountains. Lyn had a love of writing, often penning encouraging letters to others and for many years documenting her life and walk with Christ.

She was a devoted wife to Rick for 48 years, a loving mother to her 2 children and proud grandmother of 7 grandchildren. She was a faithful friend and child of Christ.

Lyn is survived by her husband, Rick Johnson, her daughter, Ashley Johnson Stutzman (Drew) of Savannah, GA, and her son, Richard Law Johnson (Amy) of Brentwood, TN, as well as 7 grandchildren. The family would like to thank the caregivers at Carlyle Place.

Visit to express tributes. Snow’s Memorial Chapel, Cherry Street, has charge of arrangements.

Rick-Ginger and I were very sorry to read about Lyn today. We have missed not seeing y’all for so long. You and your family are in our prayers. We passed Eastminster Drive on our way to church today and it rekindled the memories of those days in Columbia when we were young and full of ourselves and not on the downhill side of life. I remember being snapped in the face by your spaniel at your Eastminster home. I got in his space and he got in my face. I am sure your children and seven grandchildren will be taking good care of you, but know you are in our prayers and we love you. I’d love to talk to you when it is convenient for you. Merwin and Ginger.

It's been many years now, but even in my youth I recall how sweet, sincere, warm, and welcoming she was to everybody around her. My condolences to Johnson family. May the Lord bless you with all the joyful memories as you relive them.
