Sue Elizabeth Hartman Johnson was born in 1928 in Norfolk, Virginia, to Frank Emerson and Helen Rhodes Hartman. She married the love of her life, Joseph Cleveland Johnson on April 19, 1952, in the chapel at Langley Air Force Base Virginia and soon moved to Houston where they lived for the rest of their lives.
They were founding members of Corpus Christi Parish in Houston, later moving into St. Michael’s and were both active in the Church. Sue devoted herself to Joe, who died in 2008, their three daughters and later her mother, when she came to live with them.
When her daughters married and began families of their own, she eagerly embraced her new role as “Gran” and was much beloved by all her grandchildren.
She is survived by her three daughters and one son-in-law, Helen Johnson, Elizabeth O’Neal and Laura and Dick Cureton, six grandchildren, Susannah Cockburn-Harman, Darrell O’Neal, Spencer Cureton, Margaret O’Neal, Michael Cureton, Kyle Cureton and four great-grandchildren.
She was a Lady in the Order of the Holy Sepulchre and just recently achieved a long held dream of finding her ancestor patriot and joining the Daughters of the American Revolution.
