Nancy Jo Johnson

September 20, 2022


Nancy Jo Johnson, daughter of Robert S. Heikes and Charlotte M. Becker went to be with the Lord in Pensacola, Florida on September 20, 2022, surrounded by those she loved.

She was born in Ohio and was a former resident of Northwoods, Murfreesboro, Tennessee. She was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, Charles Johnson, as well as by her daughter, Leslie Cochran, and grandson, David Cochran.

She is survived by her children: Andrea Johnson, Christopher (Angelica) Johnson, son-in-law John Cochran, her grandchildren: Jessica (Oliver) Chapa, Charles Cochran, Rebekah (Ryan) Forsythe, Kristen (Stanley) McCoy, Alexandra Johnson, and great grandchildren: Isaac Chapa, Ellie Chapa, Caroline Forsythe, Hannah Forsythe, Naomi Forsythe, Jesse Forsythe, Luke Forsythe, Trey Cairns, Montana Cairns, and Kimmie Fowler.

Nancy was a faithful wife, mother, and grandmother who was loved deeply by those who knew her. She was a Christian woman with a gentle, kind, beautiful spirit who enjoyed the outdoors and had a love for animals. She had a profoundly artistic sense that allowed her to beautifully adorn her life and those things in it with natural elements. She inspired many toward love and hospitality. She will be deeply remembered and missed.

The family will receive visitors on Friday, September 30, 2022 from 3-5 p.m. at Feldhaus Memorial Chapel.

A graveside service will be held to honor and celebrate her life at Hopper Cemetery in Lewisburg on Saturday, October 1, 2022. A funeral procession will leave Feldhaus Memorial Chapel promptly at 10 a.m, for Hopper Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Nancy’s memory to The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals at aspca.org.

Feldhaus Memorial Chapel is assisting the family with the arrangements.
