Susan Johnson

March 4, 1948 — January 24, 2023

Florence

Susan Linda Johnson, 74, ran into the arms of her Lord at 6:50am January 24, 2023, while surrounded by the love of her family. She was born March 4, 1948 in Tampa, Florida.  She attended numerous schools growing up and graduated from Springwoods High School in Houston, Texas in 1966. After attending business school, she became a traffic director of an underground radio station in Houston. Once she met her husband, Michael, they toured the nation with the band, Taffy.  They eventually settled in Mississippi in 1981 and raised their family. Susan was a devoted wife and mother of seven, but was considered a mother by all who knew her. She devoted her entire life to ensuring that her children were well-loved and that they had the tools they needed to be successful. She was well-known for her thoughtfulness, her generous spirit, infectious smile, and wonderful laugh. Her passions were her devout faith in God, her children, and grandchildren. She spent many of her years dedicated to one of her early  loves, horses. She shared that joy with her children and grandchildren. Her early mornings often consisted of coffee and bird watching, both great loves of hers. She was loved by all who had the privilege of meeting her and will be missed dearly.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Charles Phil Peters, Jr. and June Laverne Peters; two of her children, Derek Johnson and Dorothy Johnson Kendrick.

She leaves behind her loving husband of 50 years, Michael B. Johnson of Florence, MS; her children, Deirdre Johnson Roy (Larkin) of Tunnel Hill, GA, David S. Johnson (Emily) of Lakewood Ranch, FL, Deborah Mitchell of Florence, MS, Delores Martin (Michael) of Riverview, FL, and Daniel S. Johnson (Krystal) of Brandon MS; her grandchildren, London Johnson, Trinidy J. Wegener (Jeremiah), Isak , Elsa, Nora, Mila, Elias, and Thea Johnson, Evan (Sarah) and Brantley Martin, Gage and Bree Mitchell, Gabriel and Vera Martin, and Adalay and Malakai Johnson; and her siblings, Charles Phil Peters III (Judy) of Conroe, TX, Martin Keith Johnson (Tina) of Sugarland, TX,  Robert Stephen Johnson (Paula) Troup, TX, Brett Mathew Johnson of Montgomery, TX, and Matthew Wayne Johnson (Jackie) of Sugarland, TX;  her nephew, Charles Phil Peters IV of Conroe, TX and her niece Annie Peters of Bryan, TX, as well as many other family members and friends.
