She graduated from high school in NC, received a BA from the University of Maryland and earned a Master's Degree from Central Michigan University.

Johnnie's highest military decorations include the: MSM; AFLSA; AFGCM; and AFCM. She was stationed in Germany, England and several air force bases throughout the US. In 1951 she paraded for both President Truman and Queen Wilhelmina of Holland.
Johnnie was an avid golfer and would shine at charity golf tournaments. She was noted for her work at her church in Laurel Grove, Mt. Zion United Methodist. She sang in the choir for many years, served on the Cemetery Committee and coordinated arrangements for funeral services, but her real passion was helping those in the community who were less fortunate. She was a driving force in the Mt. Zion Hungry Team, which in concert with other churches provides a food pantry. She was constantly involved in raising funds for the Hungry Team and soliciting the assistance of others to work with the Hungry Team, and few when approached could turn her down. In many respects it can be accurately stated that she was the Hungry Team and she often provided assistance other than food to those in need, often with her own funds.
