Another link in the chain of the New Jerusalem family was broken when God called his beloved servant, Mother Elouise Johnson home on April 30, 2020.

Elouise Young Johnson was born October 3,1932. She was the loving Daughter of the late Clarence Young, Sr. and Julia Clay Young. She was a loving sister to her siblings Ledger Smith, the late Alice Greenup, the late Sterling Young, Clarence Young and Edward Young, Sr.

Mother Elouise Johnson was united in holy matrimony to the late Rev. Dr. F. J. Johnson of Edgard, LA. God blessed this union with nine children: Dianne Terry, Minister Maryann Armant, Pastor Rose Grant, Raymond Johnson, Anthony Johnson, Leonard Johnson, and the late Rev. Dr. Joseph Johnson, Jr., Cynthia Borne and Abraham Johnson. God’s blessings continued to pour down on her by giving her 22 grandchildren and 52 great-grandchildren.

Mother Elouise Johnson attended Second Ward High School where she received her diploma. She was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved traveling and sight-seeing with her family, but loved serving the Lord above all. She was a strong and faithful woman of God with love for anyone she met. She would go out of her way to help anyone in need. She was a homemaker who loved baking cakes and tea cakes. She would cook everything you could think of, including her specialties homemade eggnog, turkey with all the fixing, and gumbo on holidays. She was definitely an example of a Virtual Woman of God to everyone who really knew her. She was a very bright and shining light to her family and friends.

Mother Elouise Johnson accepted Christ as her personal Lord and Savior and was baptized at an early age at Second African Baptist Church in Edgard, LA. by the late Rev. Smith. After she was united in matrimony to the late Rev Dr. F. J Johnson, she later joined New Jerusalem Baptist Church of Edgard, LA, which was pastored by the late Rev. C. A. Washington, then her husband Rev Dr. F. J. Johnson, then under her son the late Rev. Dr. Joseph Johnson, Jr. She faithfully served as a deaconess on the deacon board, and was also a member of the Golden Link Society and the Eastern Stars. She continued to work as s deaconess under the leadership of Pastor K. Maurice Tillman of New Jerusalem B. C. until the day God called her home. We will always cherish and remember her favorite hymn “When you hear of my home going, don’t worry about me” and her favorite scripture “Pslam 23”.

She leaves to cherish her memory her loving children Raymond Johnson (Gloria), Anthony Johnson, Leonard Johnson, Dianne Terry, and Minister Mary Armant ( Ivy) of Edgard, LA, Pastor Rose Grant ( Bishop Michael Grant of King Jesus Worship Center of Winnsboro, LA); her sister Ledger Smith ( Pastor Willie Smith of Providence #1 Baptist Church of Laplace LA.); daughters-in-law Claudia Johnson of Luling, LA, and Dianne Allen Johnson, of Laplace, LA; son-in-law Roy Micheal Borne of Pearland, TX; and a host of nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great grandchildren, relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents Julia Clay Young and Clarence Young Sr.; her husband Rev. Dr. F. J. Johnson; two sons Abraham Johnson and Dr. Rev. Joseph Johnson, Jr; one daughter Cynthia Marie Borne; one sister Alice Greenup; three Brothers Clarence Young Jr, Edward Young, and Sterling Young; godson Leonard Lumar sisters-n-law Maxine and Everlina Young, (Red) Forestene Edwards, (Fat) Ernestene Kelly, (Pomelia), Lucille Lumar, Rosa Johnson, and Ester Rainey Johnson; brothers-in-law Norris Johnson Sr., Roy Edwards Sr., Alvin Kelley Sr., Odell Lumar, Sr., and Million Johnson; father-in-law Abraham Johnson; mother-in-law Philomene Johnson; and one God son Leonard Lumar.
