Barbara Ann (Allen) Johnson was born January 24, 1958 to Catherine Allen and Walker Henry Jackson in Hartwell, West Virginia. She was raised by her grandparents, William and Nannie Allen who she affectionately called "Momma and Daddy". She departed this life peacefully on Sunday, October 10, 2021, surrounded by her children at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Barbara graduated from Big Creek High School in War, West Virginia. Shortly after she married Leroy Johnson, Sr. and from that union six children were born. She gave her life to Christ as a child, but it wasn't until she relocated in 1995 to Fort Wayne, Indiana, that she truly dedicated her life and began a new walk with the Lord. She was a proud member of Crusaders for Christ. She spent countless days preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to anyone who would listen.
Barbara's kids and grandkids were the highlights of her life. She loved spending tine with her grandkids and calling her kids several times a day for a "package". She will forever be remembered for her contagious smile, generous heart, and compassion for all.
She leaves to cherish her precious memories, her husband, Leroy Johnson, Sr.; one son, Brandon Johnson; four daughters, Latoya Taylor, Katrina Johnson, Latasha Johnson and Shena Johnson all of Fort Wayne; one brother, Ricky Jarvis of Fort Wayne; 10 grandchildren, Malayasia, Isreal, Elijah, Tre'Shelle, Ja'Naiah, Brandon Jr., Le'Roynaisa, Leroy III, Tea'Shani and Karson; special grandson, Chris; and a host of other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her son, Leory Johnson, Jr.; parents, Catherine Allen and Walker Jackson and grandparents, William and Nannie Allen.
Burial in Lindenwood Cemetery.
