November 10th, 2022, God decided he was bored and brought home some intellectual entertainment.
Helen Pearl ‘Red’ Johnson was born August 19th, 1929 in Detroit, Illinois to Stella Mae and Russell Wilkins.
She married Vernon Wendell ‘Buddy” Johnson on March 10th, 1952. Helen was a Preschool Teacher, Sunday School Teacher and Homemaker. There wasn’t a child on earth that she didn’t love. She was grandma or mom to everyone she met. She touched many lives in 93 years.
She attended Locust Avenue Church of Christ and then the last 30 plus years at First Christian Church. One of her greatest joys was giving her Pastors a hard time. Ask Paster Bell.
