Annie Lizzie Johnson Yates
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 17, 1931
Georgia, USA
Death: Apr. 15, 2006
Georgia, USA

Daughter of William and Bessie Irene Johnson.

Sister to George Johnson, Wyncell Johnson, Larry Johnson, Lavin Johnson Mason, Etta Mae Lindsey, Harvey Johnson and Mattie Lou Sheppard.

Mother to Sue Fowler Hodges and Anne Fowler Ethridge.

Annie was my Aunt and we always called her Aunt Lizzie. Some people called her Annie, some Lizzie and some even called her Annie Lizzie.

She loved to play Yahtzee and I remember her and my Mama and Aunt Mattie playing until all hours of the night sometimes. Some nights, they would play Scrabble.

She loved country music. I used to love spending the nights with her because she would let me take her radio in my bedroom and fall asleep listening to the music.

She made the best chocolate covered coconut balls at Christmas time and she gave me her receipe. Everyone still loves them.

During gallbladder surgery, doctors discovered cancerous tumors in her lungs, liver and cancer in her bones. She passed away almost 3 weeks later. I miss her.
