Barbara J. Johnson, 78, passed away on April 17, 2019 at Conway Medical Center. She was born on June 27, 1940 in Washington, DC and was the daughter of the late Evelyn and Raymond Jones.
Barbara worked for the Department of Agriculture in her younger years, then spent 23 years as a Medical Assistant. She was a long-time member of Celebration Presbyterian Church which was very important to her.
Barbara's hobby was gardening, and she took great pride in her yard. But her biggest pride was her family. There was nothing she wouldn't do for her children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren. She spent every moment of her life showing her family how much she loved them. In return, she was loved more than she could ever know.
Barbara is survived by her husband of 60 years, Kenneth Johnson, her son Robert Johnson, her daughter Lisa Hill and her daughter Kelly Mitchell. She is also survived by 12 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. Barbara was a wonderful "Mom" and "Nana" who will forever be loved and missed.
A funeral service will be held at 2:00 PM Monday, April 22, 2019 at McMillan-Small Funeral Home. Entombment will follow at Hillcrest Cemetery Mausoleum. The family will receive friends for one hour prior to the service.
