Phyllis Jean Johnson passed away on Sunday, September 20, 2020 at the age of 83. She was born on November 26, 1936 in Greenup, Kentucky to the late Edward and Martha (nee Greene) McConnell.
Phyllis had a quiet and calm spirit but had no problem speaking her mind with conviction when she felt the need. She was totally devoted to her family and had a special place in her heart for nurturing, developing and caring for children. For a time, she was a homemaker and volunteered at her children’s elementary school frequently. When the family moved to Woodlawn, Phyllis worked as a teacher’s aide for many years at Glendale Elementary School.
She was the beloved wife of Al Johnson; loving mother of Jocelyn Johnson Edwards and Keith Johnson; grandmother of Danita Johnson, Nicholas Edwards, Keith Johnson Jr., Ryan Edwards, Kurtis Johnson and Ashley Johnson and a host of great-grandchildren.
