The fam­ily of Etha Kath­leen (Wil­son) Carter John­son an­nounces the per­ma­nent re­lo­ca­tion of the “Happy House.” Born in 1915, in Wal­ton County, Mrs. John­son cel­e­brated her age of 97 on Septem­ber 15. A lady of great faith, she was an ac­tive mem­ber of Por­terdale Bap­tist Church in her early years and had been a de­voted mem­ber of the First Bap­tist Church of Cov­ing­ton since 1963. She was em­ployed as a win­der ten­der for Bibb Man­u­fac­tur­ing Co. for 36 years, and was a mem­ber, for more than 30 years, of the Por­terdale Woman’s Club, where she de­vel­oped and nur­tured many last­ing friend­ships.
