Johnnye Sue Salmons was born on August 8, 1947 in Texas City, Texas and passed away on October 27, 2020 in Mesquite, Texas at the age of 73 surrounded by her loving family. She is preceded in death by her loving husband Ralph Leslie Salmons.

Johnnye was a loving and devoted wife, mother, sister, great/ grandmother and great/ aunt to so many. She was always there for a sympathetic ear, or advice of any kind. Johnnye was a true beam of light, and was happiest when surrounded by her family and close friends. She was gifted in many aspects of her life, from massage therapy to Native American Arts and crafts.

There are no words to describe the pain from the loss of Johnnye, but we are happy and blessed she is no longer suffering and has been restored in the presence of the lord.

We have, and always will, love you more than life itself, and you will NEVER be forgotten!

God's Garden

God looked around his garden And found an empty place, He then looked down upon the earth And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain. He knew that you would never Get well on earth again. He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb. So he closed your weary eyelids And whispered, ‘Peace be thine’. It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you The day God called you home. –Anonymous

Thank you for your sharing parents with Michael and I for the last 43 years it's been a wonderful ride. We had a beautiful few days all being together with her until the end. My heart is broken for you all. We loved your momma/daddy very much. She was a beautiful soul that will be greatly missed.

Dear Rae, Leslie, Ryan, and family,
I’m so very sorry for your loss. Suzie was, to me, the coolest aunt, and I thought the world of her and (my) Uncle Ralph. Having trouble processing that Suzie’s gone, but glad to know Ralph and Johnnye Sue are reunited in Heaven. Love you, my dear cousins, and prayers for you all. Love, “Cathy Jo”
