Mrs. Johnson grew up in Covington and graduated from the Covington High School. She enjoyed working in her yard, going to the mountains of north Georgia, traveling to Pennsylvania, and keeping children. Nothing pleased Mrs. Mildred, or “Sister” as she was affectionately known by her family, more than cooking for her family; she loved them all very much.
Mrs. Johnson was a longtime member of Julia A. Porter United Methodist Church. She worked as the secretary for the Chairman of the Newton County Board of Commissioners for many years, she worked for Chairman Jack Morgan, Chairman Roy Varner, and Chairman Davis Morgan during her career.
Mrs. Johnson was preceded in death by her husband Travis Johnson. She is survived by her son Jeff Johnson of Birmingham, Alabama, her sister Shirley Moore Cordell of Fayetteville, GA, along with several nieces, nephews, other family and close friends.
