On Saturday evening, surrounded by her husband and son, she "went home."
A native of Halifax County, Lucille was born the third child of Sarah and Leonard Ellis who preceded her in death, along with two sisters and a brother. She is survived by her husband of 62 years, Nathaniel "Frank" Johnson; son, Johnny Johnson of Raleigh; grandchildren, Amber Johnson and fiancé Randy Wellington of Washington, DC, and Brad Johnson of Raleigh; many nieces and nephews; and friends and family too numerous to list but not forgotten. She was a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, and aunt.
Funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m. tomorrow, September 18, at Wrenn, Clarke, and Hagan Funeral Home in Roanoke Rapids, NC with interment to follow in Cedarwood Cemetery.
Flowers will be accepted or contributions can be made to the SPCA of Wake County, 200 Petfinder Lane, Raleigh, NC 27603.
