BRISTOL, VIRGINIA – Goldie June Johnson, 89, went to her eternal home on Saturday, September 5, 2020, in Bristol, Virginia. She was the firstborn of the late Rev. Everson and Pearl Marshall Morris of Dungannon, Virginia. Everson was a Minister and founding member at the House of Prayer Church in Castlewood, Virginia and Pearl was a devoted mother and wife. She was preceded in death by one brother, Haskel Carnell Morris. June and her sisters and brother traveled all over singing their harmonies at churches and radio broadcast stations. She loved writing Christian songs and singing and volunteering at her church, where she was Treasurer for many years. On November 18, 1949, she married the love of her life, Louis Jackson Johnson “Junior”. Together they started their family, having two children, Sharon Powers and husband, Richard of Dungannon, Virginia and her son, Richie Lee Francis and Kim Block and husband, Edward of Bristol, Virginia, and their daughter, Natalie Mireille Block. She is also survived by her six sisters, Lila Collins, and husband, Mack of Castlewood, Virginia, Norma Collins of Castlewood, Virginia, Earlene Collins and husband, Lester, of Castlewood, Virginia, Irdella Collins and husband, Glen of Dungannon, Virginia, Joyce Morris of Dungannon, Virginia, and Arvenia Frazier and husband, Larry of Dungannon, Virginia; several nieces and nephews. Junior and June were pillars in their community and church. She had an open door and heart policy. Her kitchen was the place many friends and strangers came seeking food, love, and prayer. She was an example to all, how to live, love unconditionally, raise your children, and give God all the glory. She lived by grace and her faith was evident in all she set out to accomplish. A life well lived and with divine purpose. She will be profoundly missed and forever remembered by all who ever had the privilege of knowing or meeting her.
