Obituary for Zelda "Zed" Orr Johnson

Zelda Mae Orr Johnson went home to be with the Lord on May 12, 2019. She was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ who loved her family beyond words. The countless lives touched by her boundless generosity are blessed beyond measure for having known her. “Zed” was born November 4, 1928, in Lee County, Virginia to parents Silas Harman and Molly Graham Orr. She married Andy Lee “Jack” Johnson on December 18, 1948, and they were married 66 years before he passed on September 30, 2015. She was the last living charter member of Royce Baptist Church where she served faithfully and sang both in the choir and in the ladies’ ensemble, Sweet Assurance. She was preceded in death by her parents and eight siblings: Pearl Allen, Toddie, Norma Ruth, Dickie, Orb, Pete, Jean, and Hilda; husband, Jack; son, Mark; and great granddaughter, Anni. She is survived by sons, Larry and wife, Brenda; Mike and wife, Sheila; daughters, Theresa Emmette and husband, Leonard; Angela Miller and husband, Darrell; and daughter-in-law, Carol Johnson; 10 grandchildren: Kevin Johnson, April Grimsley, Jason Johnson, Leslie Sweet, Cristi Reilly, Traci Sharp, Jared Emmette, Andy Emmette, Garrett Miller, and Markus Miller; as well as 13 great grandchildren and a very large extended family. The family will receive friends on Thursday, May 16, 2019, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Royce Baptist Church, 131 LaSalle Road, Oak Ridge. The funeral will follow at 7:00 p.m. with Rev.
