Mamie Kyle Goins Johnson, 103, departed this mortal life and entered Paradise to await the pleasure of her Lord and Master on July 22, 2006.

She is survived by two sons, Walter Lowell and his wife, Janice, and Norman W., Jr. and his wife, Mary. She has two grandsons and six great-grandchildren, three nieces and one nephew.

She was an avid genealogist and flower gardener. She was a third generation member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Virginia. Most notably, she and her husband, Norman, Sr. worked as Temple Workers in the Washington Temple for over 12 years and she worked for over 12 years with the Church’s Relief Society all over Southwest Virginia. She was an active and accomplished musician playing organ and piano for many years. She was still playing for services when she was 92.

The family would like to thank the Highland Ridge Rehab Center at Dublin, Va. for the loving and professional care that they provided for her over the years that she lived there.
