Juanita (Thompson) Johnson

September 13, 1941 ~ May 12, 2020 (age 78)


Juanita Johnson, age 78 of 509 South Vance Street, Sanford, NC transitioned into eternal rest Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at Central Carolina Hospital, Sanford, NC.

Juanita Johnson, 78, was born September 13, 1941 to the late Emma “Granny” Thompson and Will Thompson. She was something special because she was their only angel. “Ma Neat” as we often called her, slipped away peacefully to her heavenly home Tuesday, May 12, 2020 at Central Carolina Hospital.

“Ma Neat” was one of a kind. She took pride in everything she accomplished despite her condition; she never let that stop her. In her spare time, she loved to do her puzzle books while watching her favorite TV shows and drinking a Root Beer or her grape Sunkist. Grocery Shopping was her all-time favorite. While riding in the shopping cart, we knew that an isle would be destroyed as she knocked over items with the shopping cart. We just walked behind her laughing and picking up the items. These are some of the memories that we’re going to miss.

"Ma Neat" was preceded in death by one son, Tracey Johnson; three grandchildren, Aaron, Michael, and Alaiyah; one aunt, Mrs. Virginia and two uncles, John Earl and Fred Petty Jr.

"Ma Neat" leaves behind five adorable sons, Joseph Johnson (Tonya), James Johnson, Jeffrey Johnson (Keisha); her twins, Donnie (Shemicka) and Ronnie (Kesha) all of Sanford, NC; fourteen grandchildren, eight great grandchildren; a special aunt whom she loved dearly, Ethel Petty of Sanford, NC and a host of relatives and friends.
