The Johnson Family will be forever grateful to the three cherished caregivers, Teesha, Tina and Shay, who provided loving and tender care for Lila throughout the past 9 years, and a thank you goes out to the members of Hinds Hospice who provided their compassion and assistance.
Lila was also preceded in passing by her parents Floyd and Bobby Nelson. Lila is survived by two sons, Steve and Carl Johnson, her daughter in law Jean, and a gaggle of grandchildren.
In keeping with Lila’s specific wishes, there will be no memorial service.
Mom and Lila, we all love and miss you and will think of you finally reunited with Dick and sipping ‘tinis and enjoying shrimp cocktails with a crab salad together wherever that might be.
