Carol Yvonne Johnson
Virginia Beach – Carol, was the last of eleven children, born to Mr. and Mrs. Horatio James of Antiqua West Indies. She started school early for she was very bright. After junior high, she graduated from high school in Antigua West Indies. In April, 1968, she married Stanford Johnson, from that union two lovely girls, Trina and Dawn were born. Carol was a telephone operator for several years. Upon leaving there, she worked for UFT, and retired after 35 years. Carol and her husband moved to Virginia Beach about 10 years ago, where she bought a home. She and her husband really loved living here.
Carol loved to crochet. Anyone who was ever expecting a child, she would make sure they had a beautiful coverlet and pillow. She also made lap ghans for the people residing in nursing homes. She was a true Christian, who was a prayer warrior. She was also forever helping friends and neighbors any way she could.
We all love and miss her, but our Lord and Savior loved her more, so he took her out of her pain and suffering.
