Sheila Paulette Johnson, 54, passed away on Wednesday, September 14, 2011. She was born in Chattanooga on March 12, 1957, the daughter of the late Helen Fran Tullos and one of seven children.
She grew up in Pikeville, where she attended Wheeler Addition Church of God, which led her to finding God at a young age. She grew up enjoying the country life with family, friends, and Mom’s homemade apple and fired peach pies. She married on June 15, 1984, Anthony E. Johnson, a service member stationed in Germany. She joined him overseas and for 27 years supported her husband in his many travels. The love of children motivated her to work for 12 years on several instillations as a child car provider and a Georgia Pre-K assistant teacher.
Next to having the Lord in her life, one of her greatest accomplishments was writing her first book, My Miraculous Healing. Her kind and giving spirit was an asset in her life and a blessing to her family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Helen Tullos.
Those left to cherish her memory and legacy are her husband, Anthony; children Miranda and Anthony II “AJ” of Columbus, Georgia; her siblings Henry, Jerry, Michael and Ray Tullos, and Charlotte Pankey of Pikeville, and Allen Tullos of Minnesota; loving nieces and nephews, Tammy, Trishonne, Sineka, Henry III, Shawna, Ciara, Richard, Robert, Christopher, Aajah, Nahvi and Emmanuel; mother-in-law, Betty Blue (Sylvester) of Tampa, Florida; father-in-law, Claude Martin (Jeanie) of Bakewell; two brothers-in-law; four sisters-in-law; many cousins and friends, including her special best friends, Diane Worthington of Pikeville and Velma Jones of Columbus, Georgia.
