JOHN­SON, Con­stance "Con­nie" Wake­field,

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - WEATHER DESK -

86, passed away Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 8, 2017. She was born in Rich­mond, Va., on Novem­ber 21, 1930, to the late Gray Mickey and Bernice Wake­field. She was also pre­ceded in death by her sons, William Joseph John­son and David Robert John­son; and a sis­ter, Dorothy Wake­field. She is sur­vived by her hus­band of 69 years, Robert William John­son; daugh­ter-in-law, Mary Ruth John­son of Rocky Mount, N.C.; grand­chil­dren, Stacy Kiss of Rich­mond, Va., Matthew Robert John­son (Mea­gan) and Caitlin Gray John­son of Rocky Mount, N.C.; great­grand­chil­dren, Diony­cia Sky John­son, Carly Grace Ca­gle and Si­mon Floyd John­son of Rocky Mount, N.C. She is also sur­vived by a cousin, Lisa Har­rah (Mike) and their chil­dren, Ian and Cameron. Con­nie was loved by ev­ery­one who ever met her. A true Chris­tian, who loved her Lord and Sav­ior and tried to treat ev­ery­one with love and kind­ness. She could re­mem­ber im­por­tant dates and events and rarely for­got a birth­day or an­niver­sary of fam­ily and loved ones. She proved to be the ul­ti­mate Ma­rine wife as she guarded the home through her Ma­rine hus­band’s de­ploy­ment to Korea and two de­ploy­ments to Viet­nam. She was a mem­ber of Broadus Memo­rial Bap­tist Church in Rich­mond, Va. for many years. She will be sorely missed!

In lieu of flow­ers, do­na­tions may be made to The Ma­rine Toys for Tots Foun­da­tion or a char­ity of your choice.
