Tribute to a pastor's wife


I am just writing to let you know that my loving wife of 63 years, Estelle W. Johnson, passed away on November 23, 2004. Estelle was certainly called by God to be a preacher's wife. She never complained about anything called upon to do in that capacity. She was faithful to God and each of the churches I was privileged to pastor.

Estelle always taught Sunday School and was especially a hard worker in WMU. Estelle taught public school for 31 years. We have two sons, Charles G. Johnson, Jr. (wife Julienne Johnson and son Charles G. Johnson, III, 15) and Lonnie Alexander Johnson (wife Jeanene Byrd Johnson, son Benjamin Charles Johnson, 19, and daughter Brittany Alexandria Johnson,18).

We all miss her very much but feel that God has made heaven much more attractive since calling her home.
