Elizabeth “Lib” Sprouse Johnson, 95, of Etowah, passed away Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020.
Born in Ruth, N.C., she was the daughter of the late James E. and Edna Goforth Sprouse. In addition to her parents, her husband of 55 years, William Johnson; and her brothers, J.C. Sprouse, Junior Sprouse, Bill Sprouse and Bobby Sprouse, predeceased her.
A lifetime member of Turkey Creek Baptist Church, she had a kind and gentle spirit. She worked as a merchandiser for Kmart until she was 86 years old. She enjoyed watching golf and her favorite football team, the Carolina Panthers. She also loved to read and to shop, but her great loves were her family, her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren.
Her loving survivors include her daughter, Margaret Tate (Steve), of Etowah; grandchildren, Courtney (Sarah) Tate, Brad Tate and Kasey (Heather) Tate; great-grandchildren, Jamie Tate, Ella Tate, Harper Tate, Dallas Tate, Jacob Tate, Hailey Tate and Noah Tate; brothers, Onald Sprouse, of Winston-Salem, and Donald Sprouse, of Brevard.
Private graveside services will be held at Blue Ridge Gardens of Memory in Pisgah Forest.
The family would like to thank the wonderful hospice nurses, Keitha, Tennille and Sharon, who took such good care of her. Also, a special thank you goes to Beth, the home health care nurse who was such a blessing.
