You have played so many roles in my life. Growing up you were my mentor, champion, adoptive mother, and ultimately became a dear friend. You have been fiercely protective and loyal, with an open heart and arms for any child or animal who made their way to your door. There has always been room at your table, in a kitchen which smells of divinity, and cookies, one for each hand.

With you goes a part of me and with me stays a part of you. I hope we can all infuse that little bit of magic into even the most average of days, like you did so effortlessly. I love you and will miss you terribly. Until we see each other down the road a piece, may the sun shine warm upon your face. xoxo

Family, I wish you peace and comfort. You are in our hearts and thoughts.

Mrs Johnson was one of the strongest, kindest, most intelligent women I've had the pleasure of knowing. If you needed something, she'd find a way to help, always. This world and it's inhabitants are worse off without her in it. Thank you for everything Mrs Johnson.


Prayers for the Johnson Family. Ms Donna will always have a special place in my heart. Her faith, strength, courage and conviction were examples for all that knew her. Rest in Peace


I had the privilege of knowing Donna through her loving and devoted daughter Holly, my business partner going on 17 years. Donna was the always the first to send a homemade baby present for all four of our children. Our kids looked forward to Donna's gifts and sweets every Easter, Halloween, Christmas and other holidays.

She treated my family like her family and she will be missed dearly. God bless the Johnson family and may Donna rest in peace.


I was privileged to know Donna for many years as a delightful friend and neighbor, and it was always a pleasure to catch up with her. She was a kind, sweet, and loving woman and a wonderful storyteller. Her love for Darriel and their family was always there, and she was devoted to each of them. I am so sorry to hear of her passing, and take comfort in that she was with her loved ones. May God keep you close to His heart, and may her memory bring you peace and comfort from this sorrow.


Keeping you all close in our hearts and prayers over the loss of your beloved wife and mom. May the peace that surpasses all understanding, bring you all comfort during this difficult time.

While I never had the opportunity to know her personally, I know that character, integrity, loyalty and selflessness describe the traits that she passed along to her daughter, Holly. Donna was loved and will be missed. But also know that she is at peace. The entire Johnson Family is my family's prayers and hearts. God bless Donna and the entire Johnson Family.


I am so sorry to hear of Donna’s passing. She and her family were the first to come introduce themselves to my family when we moved to Hollyhock In Richwood. She was fun to visit with. I haven’t seen her or any of her family since I left the neighborhood. I can’t begin to tell you Darriel. Darriel JR, Holly and Devon. Y’all are in my prayers
