Norma Lee Buchanan Johnson, 82, of Flat Rock, went to be with the Lord Saturday, Aug. 15, 2020, at Universal Healthcare, of Fletcher.

She was born in Ohio Oct. 25, 1937. She was preceded in death by her mother, Margaret, and father Emerson Buchanan; her husband of 34 years, Henry H. Johnson, who passed in 2010; sister, Barbara, and brother, Gerald.

She was a devoted wife to her husband and opened her heart and home over the years to many children in need of a mother, although never having children of her own. Before marriage, she spent time in the United States Army. She worked in dietary for Beverly Enterprises for many of her working years.

She was a devout Christian, belonging to the Church of God. She loved her church family, and she loved singing and praising the Lord. Even while experiencing ill health in her final years, her faith was unwavering as she faithfully trusted the Lord with her life.

She is survived by three sisters, Rose Purvee, of Brevard, Anna Shell, of Groveland, Fla., and Lorraine Mong, of Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla .; one brother, David Buchanan, of Eustis, Fla .; as well as numerous nieces and nephews who loved her dearly.

Burial will be private.
