Remembering Johnnie

Remembering Johnnie. Johnnie left us this past November to be with her Lord. She was always trying to improve her education. This picture was taken May 16, 1972 at the graduation exercise at NTSU. She had been doing night classes in Denton. Dorcas was old enough to get supper for me and Tim. Johnnie was receiving her MS degree in elementary education. She was doing some substitute teaching in Plano.

We were very proud of her that night. It would be about 10 years after this picture before she came to my medical practice first as my receptionist and later as my office manager.

Always busy. Always helping others. Always serving the Lord. Now rejoicing in Heaven!!

  1. Thank You so much for posting this:) She is a special Aunt!! Love you!! Cecelia & HS

  2. I loved working for you and Johnnie in your office in Dallas. She was very efficient and kind. I thank you for allowing me to go with you to Grenada. I loved you both very much. Still do. I know you miss her and think of her every day as I do for Joe. It will be two years this March 23 since he left us. I like reading your memories of the Korean War. Joe was out there in the ocean on the fleet tanker Navasota while you were in the midst of the fighting. He joined the Navy in 1948 for 3 years and also stayed the 4th year for Truman. I would love to visit with you about all of that but mostly about family history. My mother Mayma died when I was only 11 yrs. old and after that we weren’t in contact with the Wood kin. There is so much that I don’t know. Many questions. I hear frequently from Kathy Wyler but her memories are not very well connected. Happy Birthday! Joan

    1. Thanks for your thoughts. It is hard not having that special one around. It is good to know that we will reconnect with loved ones!!
