Mary Bruce Robinson Johnson, (92), born August 11, 1928 in London, Kentucky, entered into the presence of her Lord and Savior on November 5th in Lexington, Kentucky. She was a resident of Sayre Christian Village. Throughout her life she maintained a sweet and quiet demeanor which won the hearts of those around her who are even now being changed by the witness of her love and faith in Jesus Christ. Mary grew up in London, Kentucky, and graduated from Sue Bennett College. After marrying in 1949, she and her husband Johnny moved to Nashville, Tennessee. He then started a dry cleaning business which took them, and their new son John, to Madisonville, Kentucky. There, she and Johnny had two more children Stephen and Melissa. After being widowed at a young age Mary and her children moved to Lexington to be closer to family. She entered the workforce as a real estate agent for Frank Sadler Homes. Eight years later, she made a career change as manager of Sophia’s Hallmark. Mary never remarried after the death of her husband Johnny, who predeceased her by 54 years. She dedicated her life to providing for and raising her three children. After retirement she spent her time being a loving “Mammaw” to her two grandchildren Clint and Christina Bacon. Along with her husband, John “Johnny” Terrell Johnson she was preceded in death by her parents Roscoe Calvin and Mayme Begley Robinson, sister Irene Doody, and brother William “Bill” Robinson. She is survived by her children, John Begley Johnson, Stephen Terrell (Toni) Johnson, and Mary Melissa (Chris) Bacon, as well as her grandchildren Clinton Begley Bacon and Mary Christina Bacon.
