Misty Johnson


GREENVILLE, S.C. — Misty Michelle Johnson, 39 years old, of Greenville, S.C., went to be with the Lord in September of 2013.

She was born to Randy L. Johnson, Sr. and the late Romona (Sissy) Jacks, November 11, 1973, in Pine Bluff, Ark. Misty graduated from Pine Bluff High in 1992, and later went on to receive her Professional RDA license.

In 1994, Misty relocated to South Carolina to be closer to her mother, but returned to Arkansas in 1998. She married Seth Sherman in 2001, and then began her journey with him in the Coast Guard. With many transfers, from Galveston, Texas to Brunswick, Ga. to Maryland, Misty’s zest for life and happiness left a mark upon the hearts of many across the country.

In 2009, Misty moved back to South Carolina.

Misty loved football, particularly the South Carolina Gamecocks, traveling and everything outdoors, from hiking and camping to fishing and four wheeling. She was devoted to her family and friends. Her playful positive attitude drew people to her. She was an advocate for homeless animals. She had even recently adopted her dog from a local shelter.

Most importantly, Misty proclaimed Jesus Christ as Lord and was baptized on September 25, 2011, accepting our Heavenly Father’s gift of eternity. This is not the end for Misty… it’s merely the beginning.

Misty was preceded in death by her mother, Romona (Sissy) Jacks.

Survivors include her father, Randy L Johnson, Sr. of Pine Bluff, Ark., step father, Lynnwood Gantt of Hodges, S.C., brother, Randy L Johnson, Jr. and Misty L. of White Hall, Ark., and niece and nephews, Lauren Gossett of White Hall, Ark., Dustin Potter of Swansea, S.C., and Reed Johnson of White Hall, Ark.

The memorial service will be held on Monday, November 18, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at Family Church in White Hall, Ark. All are welcome to come celebrate the life of Misty Johnson, a beautiful young woman who was taken from us too soon.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to Jefferson County Humane Society in honor of Misty’s love for animals.
