Lucille Johnson Nicholson

LUCILLE JOHNSON NICHOLSON, daughter of the late Claude Johnson and Queen Richardson Johnson, was born on September 11, 1927, in Halifax County, North Carolina. She transitioned from this earthly life and entered her Heavenly home on Monday, September 7, 2020.

Lucille accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior, joined the White Rock Baptist Church in Hollister, North Carolina, and remained a faithful member until her health declined.

Lucille was united in Holy Matrimony to Howard Nicholson, Sr.,  who preceded her in death. She loved gardening and cooking wonderful meals for her family. One of her greatest joys was the time she spent with her grandchildren.
