Judy Wade Johnson passed away after a hard-fought battle with Myasthenia Gravis on January 23, 2021. Born in Cairo, GA on June 14, 1941 to Mittie Cumbie and Sam Wade, she grew up in Cairo and married Jonah L. Johnson on August 10, 1961 in Daytona Beach, FL and again on August 10, 1987 in Mableton, GA. She is survived by Jonah, daughter Melissa Folsom (Mark), granddaughter Caroline Folsom, son Greg Johnson and partner Frederick D. Brooks. She is also survived by her church family at Lighthouse Baptist Church in Hiram, Georgia who loved her very much.
Judy was a very talented seamstress and loved to crochet. There are many friends who were fortunate to receive her hand made afghans. Her last one, a baby afghan, was completed only a few weeks ago. Judy and Jonah also enjoyed travelling in the US after he retired in 1995. Before her illness they had visited all but five states. Four years ago, she was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis, a neuromuscular disease that attacks the nervous and immune system. Throughout her ordeal she always kept her sense of humor and tried to make the best of the situation. We are most grateful to the nurses of Traditions Health who assisted her through the last few months. She was a true Christian who will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Although she loved flowers, a donation to Lighthouse Baptist Church, Hiram GA would be greatly appreciated.
A private graveside service will be held January 30, 2021 with Dr. John Turner officiating.
If attending the visitation or service, the staff of Clark Funeral Home highly recommends that a face mask be worn, and that social distancing is practiced to help prevent the spreading of any possible illnesses and to help keep visitors, friends and family members of Mrs. Johnson safe. The family would like to extend their love and appreciation to everyone who may be unable to attend the service in person due to the states Covid-19 restrictions (no more than 50 people inside the funeral home at one time).
Clark Funeral Home in Hiram, GA, is honored to care for the family during this difficult time.
