Born on May 18, 1932 in Pender County, she is the daughter of the late Leonard Cleveland Giddeons, Sr. and Clydia Elizabeth Rivenbark.

Mrs. Johnson was a true “Southern Belle” in all aspects of her life while here on earth. Her caring for others sets a wonderful example for all of us as we go through life helping others. She was the owner and operator of Johnson Furniture in Wallace for many years and during this time made many wonderful lifelong friends who will always remember her.
A service to celebrate her life is set for 11:00 a.m. on Friday, October 8, 2021 in the Siloam Baptist Church in Harrells, NC, followed by interment in Wells Chapel Baptist Church Cemetery. Officiating will be the Reverend Stan Jenkins and the Reverend Barry Wells. The family asks that, rather than floral arrangements, consideration be given to a contribution to Children’s Home Society of North Carolina. Padgett Funeral & Cremation Services is proudly serving the Johnson family.
