Saturday was a sad day for the friends and family of Teena (Nelson) Johnson. She fought cancer for sometime. Teena was 46 years old. Her husband and children stayed by her side with lots of love and support. I know some of my readers may not know her, but she was the daughter of J.C. and Pat (Shortt) Nelson. Paternal grandparents were the late Leo and Bertie (Pruett) Nelson and maternal grandparents were the late Everett (Ebb) and Artie (Pruett) Shortt. On June 7, 1986 she married Clifford (Jolly) Johnson and they had three wonderful children, Adam, Levi and Ester. The boys graduated and work out and Ester will graduate this year. Everyone that knew her had good thoughts and kind words about her. Her pastor, Donald Potter, and her former pastor, James Orick did a find job preaching her funeral. Everything fell right in the place where it should have and the Lafferty family did a great job singing. Remember the Johnson family in your prayers and her siblings. May God bless you all and may He hold you in the palmo f his hand. A very large crowd attended the visitation and funeral.
She will be greatly missed. It doesn’t seem real to me that she is gone. I really enjoyed being around her.
Lots of food was brought to the church for the family and friends.
They all are grateful for all that was done in the time of their need. Lots of pretty flowers and donations were received..
Chris and Christy Lakey attended services for his uncle, Ernie Stall, in Springfield.
Christy enjoyed going Saturday to watch her granddaughter, Shelby Crossland, play basketball at Ava.
Tuesday and Wednesday we visited Mylea at Cox Hospital. Wednesday we got a shingles shot and mine got red and swollen, but you sure hate the thought of taking shingles. James had them once and they are rough.
James and John Siler went fishing Monday, not much luck, but John did catch my supper. They had a good time.
Sunday at Garrison Church 60 attended. Lisa Hampton sang a pretty song and we were delighted to have all our visitors at both services. Good altar service on Sunday.
Monday was in the 50’s and waspers were out and a honey bee was stirring while James, John and I were visiting outside before he left. He and Connie were going to attend a basketball game. I believe Hope was playing, their grandkids are all in sports, I think.
I had a nice call from Rosalea Cipriano. She and Wayne visit Iona Maggard when they go to Springfield.
Janie Morrison’s uncle, Lloyd Shipman, passed away. Janie and Phyllis Bloomer brought food to Eastern Gate Church for the family and friends of the Johnson family. Janie prepared food also before Saturday for the family.
Sunday evening John and Connie Siler hosted a family gathering honoring their granddaughter, Kaylee and Connie’s brother, David Halcomb’s January birthdays. Junior and Betty Halcomb, Brad Siler and daughters joined the Silers and Evans family for a good meal. Patti wasn’t feeling good and didn’t get out Sunday. Happy Birthday to Kaylee and David. Wish you many more.
Get-well wishes sent to Kay Goodwin, Betsy Conrad, Fae Pruett, Shelia Hampton and Richard Mitchell and all the sick.
Happy Birthday wishes sent to our great niece, Shellie Marler.
If you don’t have a church or looking for one, we welcome you to Garrison Baptist Church. Can’t miss us, located on hwy. 125 between Bradleyville and Chadwick. Have a good weekend.
