Ammie V. Johnson

On December 9, 1918, a beautiful soul by the name of Ammie was born to Eliza Jenkins and William Walker.  She was the oldest of eleven children and was often referred to as their second mother.

She grew up in Emmett, Arkansas where she helped care for her younger siblings.  She later moved to Hope and married Wallace Johnson and to this union five children were born.

On June 10, 2020, Ammie grew tired and gained her wings.  She is now able to sit at the feet of Jesus and visit with all the family and friends who went on before her.  Her husband Wallace, sons Wallace Jr., James Willis and her daughter Linda Carol were waiting for her. During her century here she loved working in and around Bethel Church.  She took pride in working with the youth and putting the Family and Friends Day together.  She enjoyed fishing, cooking and spending time with her family and friends. 

She leaves to cherish her memory two sons: Jerry (Shirley) Johnson and Charles Johnson, of Hope, Arkansas; one son-in-law, Isaiah Robinson of Mesquite, Texas; One daughter-in-law, Jacquiline Johnson; One brother, Odell Jenkins of Des Moines, Iowa; twelve grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, eight great-great grandchildren; Her adopted Family: The Anthony family, Carol, Gene, Alice Ann, Scott and their children; as well as a host of cousins, family and friends that will miss her dearly.

Visitation will be 4-6pm Saturday, June 13, 2020 at the funeral home.  Graveside service will be 1pm Sunday, June 14 at Scott’s Memorial Gardens, Perrytown, Arkansas.  Arrangements entrusted to Hicks Funeral Home, Inc.
