With a sad and lonely mind I will try to write an obituary of my beloved Bro. Sam Johnson. He was born May
6, 1892 and passed away April 1, 1975. He was the son of Alisha and Nancy Johnson. He was married to
Rhoda Jane Slone Aug. 14, 1912. To this union were born 9 children; 4 deceased and 5 living. Bro. Sam joined
the Mt. Olive Old Regular Baptist Church August 13, 1935 and October 23, 1953 he lay his Church Letter in at
Ivy Point Regular Baptist Church and remained there until death. I feel like Brother Sam lived the closest life to
the Lord I have ever seen anyone live. He preached for many years and begged people to turn to the Lord.
Now his good wife and children and many friends miss him very much in this life but I feel with all my heart our
loss here is Heaven’s gain.
His talk to me all the time he was sick his willingness for the Lord’s will to be done. I think he lived a life here
on earth that would lead us to a happy home up in Heaven.
