Marolyn Mae Johnson passed from this life in the very early morning hours of April 9th, 2022 at her home in Burleson, Texas with her loving husband, C.W., at her side. Marolyn had struggled with numerous health problems in the last few years of her life, however her death was somewhat unexpected.
A memorial service will be held at her church, Alsbury Baptist in Burleson, Texas, at a later date.
Marolyn was the daughter of Lottie Faye and Ben Carrol Jordon and was born on May 14th, 1952 in Lufkin, Texas. She later met the love of her life C.W.(Carl) Johnson. They were married on Valentine's Day, 1978 and were married for 44 years. They recently renewed their vows to share their love with all their old and new friends and family. Marolyn worked as a home health aid and a medication aid until the late 1980's when she was forced to retire, due to disability. She always had a knack for helping the elderly and loved doing so. In later years, she helped her husband with his ministry at a local assisted living facility and at a skilled nursing facility. She was also the primary care-giver for her mother-in-law, Yvonne Johnson, whom she considered a second mother. Marolyn was quite active in her church, Alsbury Baptist. She was a member of the “Prayer Warriors.” She would visit the sick and home-bound, would arrive early at the church to make coffee, welcome new members, and visit with new and old parishioners alike. In later years, when health issues prevented her from being as active in the church, she still visited with members by phone and occasionally attended services, when possible. She also took pride in keeping a clean home, and for fun one of her favorite games was Yahtzee, which she took very seriously by the way, yelling “Yahtzee” so loud it could be heard by people in Alaska!!
Marolyn is survived by her husband, C.W.(Carl) Johnson; sons, Thomas Dyer of Ft. Worth, Jacob Johnson and husband, David of Godley; sister, Renee Grimes; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. Marolyn was proceeded in death by her parents; daughter, Debbie; brothers, Tommy and Ricky, and sisters, Carolyn and Deborah.
