Lois Johnson

July 16, 1932–Dec. 16, 2020


Lois Ann Johnson, age 88, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2020, at her residence, Paramount Senior Living Center in Ona, West Virginia.

A West Virginia native, Lois was born on July 16, 1932. She was the precious daughter of the late Carter H. and Catherine Schrader Morrison, as well as the loving wife for 62 years of the late Elmer L. Johnson.

Preceding her in death were her sister, Faith (Jimmy) Wilson and two brothers, Carter H. Morrison, Jr. and James David Morrison.

Lois was a 1950 graduate of Kitts Hill High School. After graduation, she worked as an office clerk at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton. Thereafter, she held several other secretarial and office positions.

Through the years, Lois was active in ministry at Bethel Temple Assembly of God in Huntington, West Virginia. Her roles included being a choir member, Sunday school teacher, missionette sponsor and typist for the church bulletin. She was very loving and compassionate and made many visits to the hospital, individual homes and to Hospice House to pray for and comfort friends and church members who were ill or terminally ill.

Lois loved her three children and their spouses dearly, and is survived by her daughter, Ramona Gail (Charles) Runyon, of Huntington, West Virginia, sons, James Carter (Ellen) Johnson, of Cape Coral, Florida and Reverend Gregory Alan (Rebecca) Johnson, of Danville, Kentucky. She doted on her four grandchildren, Angela (Bradley) Williamson, Joshua (Elaine) Runyon, Austin (Kayla) Johnson and Kelsey Ann Johnson. She was also blessed with six great-grandchildren, Hope LeeAnn, Grace Kathryn, Bryce Carter, Cole Bradley, Lilli and little Nathaniel Gregory.

No funeral service was held due to the pandemic; however, a closed, private graveside service for immediate family members was held at Sugar Creek Cemetery.
