Vera "Connie" Johnson
October 11, 1928 – February 11, 2020
Vera Ferne Brott (mostly known as “Connie”), went to be with her Lord on February 11, 2020, at the age of 91. She was the daughter of John Willis Brott and Alice Mae Brott. She was born in Mitchell, Nebraska on October 11th of 1928. Her siblings were Bonnie Pierce, Betty O’Brian, Violet Neary and brother Duane “Buck” Brott. All preceded her in death. She was married to our father, Clyde Johnson, the love of her life for 68 years who went to be with Jesus on November 7, 2013.
She retired in 1987 from the family business. She loved God and family with her whole heart. Grandchildren were her biggest blessing. Nothing gave her more joy.
She loved painting pictures especially of animals and ranch scenes. She always said, all she ever wanted to do was be a wife and mother and she excelled in both. Her children were Danny Johnson (wife Sandra), Bobbie Zwerneman (husband Fred), Dale Johnson (wife Orelia), and Tommy Johnson (wife Sharon). She was the grandmother of 15 grandchildren, 29 great grandchildren and 1 great great grandson. This woman had a godly influence on anyone she met and her presence will be missed more than words can say by anyone who knew her. We love her so much and were really blessed to have had her as our mother.
A graveside service will be held on Sunday, March 1, 2020 at Cook-Walden/Capital Parks Cemetery. A memorial service will be held for her at Hill Country Fellowship Church, 200 Houston-Clinton Drive Burnet, Texas 78611, on Monday, March 2, 2020 at 10 AM.

No words can express how precious our Dear Aunt Connie was. From the time I came into the Johnson family until our last conversation, she always had so much love to give. She always had nothing but good to say about anyone and found the best in everyone. Connie was a true woman of God. Her concerns were not for herself but her family and those she loved. I am beyond blessed to have spent many days with her. She truly taught and lived the meaning of love.
The first story she told me was how she meet my Husband when her and Clyde first got married. She said here was this cute little boy with his boots on, probably about 2 years old and I told him, "You are such a cute little boy", and he kicked her in the chin. She said, "I have loved him dearly ever since then." This is just the way her heart was, so full of love.
I know you are with our Lord and you are ok. Your love, grace, compassion, spirit filled wisdom, devotion, shining righteousness, faithfulness will live on in your family you devoted your life to.
We will all miss you so very much yet know our blessing to have had you in our lives.

There is only one way I know how to describe my mom, read Proverbs 31. If you new my mom you would know that this chapter in the bible is my mom and that's for sure and for certain. Love you mom and I will see you again! God gets all the glory mom would say. Absolutely mom!!!👍

My precious mother was almost unbelievably sweet and precious as a human person could be. About everyone who knew her loved her. All four of her children and their spouses and children loved her so very much. I thank God that we all spent much of the months since her 91rst birthday in October 2019 with her. Sandra and I had so many precious days with my sweet momma and were blessed by God with many wonderful memories with this amazingly precious mother. Praise God Almighty for giving this precious mother to be my mother and her very loved husband to be my Dad too. I feel that I could never have had either a better Mom or Dad and I was blessed by God to have had them live to over 90 years old each. And I know no one who loves our Lord Jesus more than our momma. All of us of her children know the Lord Jesus as our Savior partly because of my mother's loving relationship with Jesus that showed each of us and my sweet Dad to that we needed Jesus as our own personal Lord and Savior. Thank You Lord God for making her, my wonderful mother. She will be missed but I am so happy that Mom is now with her precious Jesus and my Dad and family and friends she has so missed for a long time. Praise God

My dear, sweet Aunt Vera. I started visiting every year after my mother, Betty passed. I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to experience getting to know my Aunt better. She and my Mom were very close since childhood. Aunt Vera often told me of their fun times together and shared family memories that I cherish so much. She was a godly woman and a great example of trust and faith in God. She never gave up praying for anyone. Her love will remain in my heart forever and I will think of her often with love and admiration. I will miss her beautiful smile and warm hugs forever. We will meet again in Heaven.

I haven't seen Connie in many, many years and that is no ones' fault but my own. I have always loved Connie from growing up as a small child and visiting her and Clyde and of course the whole crew, on their farm in Pflugerville. Danny was my age and we played in the hay in the barn, in the dirt field in front of the house with little army men and after getting older, road horses and we even loaded hay onto a truck in the field. What an experience for this city boy. After loading hay, that evening my knee was hurting and Connie pulled a long piece of hay that had penetrated into my knee. Connie was always so kind and gentle in my eyes. Connie was a beautiful lady, both physically and in her kindness. She will be missed.

I always loved talking with her about the Lord. When Ralph told me she had passed away all I could do is smile and be happy for her. She is now home with the Lord. I can see her and Clyde walking hand and hand together again. You will be missed Connie, but one day we will see you and Clyde again. Love Ralph and Trish Zarker.
