She is survived by her husband, Leon Johnson of the home, her high school sweetheart with whom she just celebrated 50 years of marriage; her daughters Sharon (Orrin) Thomas of Cheraw, and Vickie (Chuck) Miller of Society Hill; and the two greatest joys in her life, her granddaughters Anne Kathryne Thomas and Victoria Miller. She was preceded in death by her brother, Wilton Auman.
