Wilkerson, early in life. While attending a two room school in Lakeside, Oregon, Johnnie met Russell W. Angell whom she married in 1944. A year later they had a daughter who was born while Russell was serving in Germany during World War II. In 1947 they purchased a home in Aloha, Oregon, which they shared together until Russell's passing in 1999.

Johnnie had many hobbies including playing the piano, reading, going to the Oregon Coast, painting, sewing and knitting. She was noted for her exquisite needlework winning many national, state and county awards. Her biggest honor was winning third prize in a Woman's Day magazine contest for designing an afghan using leftover yarn. "Floral Fantasia" was photographed for the cover of Woman's Day's annual book and is still being knitted today. She also loved gardening, pruning the many rose bushes that lined the front yard their Farmington Road home and tending to the vegetable garden. However, her greatest love was for animals. At any one time, she had dogs, cats, fish, birds, ducks and horses, most of which were once strays.
