November 28, 1938 - October 11, 2021
Edna Earl Johnson, 83, was born November 28, 1938, in Itta Bena, Mississippi to Clyde and Eva Bell (Taylor) Anderson. Edna was the 6th out of twelve siblings and was the glue to her entire family. Edna gave her life to Jesus at an early age. She was as a dedicated member of Bethel AME Church in Kansas City, Missouri, where she loved to worship & praise The Lord. She enjoyed cooking, feeding the less fortunate with her church family, serving in her community and was always there for a family member young or old. Edna graduated from Broad Street High School in Greenwood, Mississippi. She enjoyed many amazing years in the medical industry. She started as a nurse at Mission East Hospital, working in Labor and Delivery. She adored her patients, coworkers, and her life changing career. Edna later retired from Trinity Lutheran Hospital, working in the Physical Therapy Department, where she received “Employee of The Year” on several occasions. Her passion for people, created her a purposeful journey. Edna was blessed to meet the love of her life, Charlie B. Johnson; they were united in holy matrimony on September 15, 1960, in Greenwood, Mississippi. They later moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where they raised their children in their loving Christian home. They made a dynamic team and formed an amazing legacy. Their relationship was one of a kind; they were truly made for each other. Edna asked The Lord for help and her number was called to meet Him early Monday morning on October 11, 2021, in the comfort of her home. Charles and Edna are officially reunited with their Lord and Savior, forever. She will be remembered most from serving, nurturing, and uplifting people. Edna would give people the shirt off her back or even her last dollar. Her smile would light up any room. Her wisdom, style and class will last forever. Edna is preceded in death by her loving parents, her wonderful husband, a dear son, Michael Carpenter; six brothers: John L. Anderson, George Anderson, Clyde Anderson, Andy Anderson, Eddie Anderson and William Anderson, and her amazing sister, Geneva McKinney. Left to cherish Edna’s memory: 5 beautiful daughters: Barbara Waite, Cassandra Johnson, Jaqueline Johnson, Susie Peace, and Leola Harrell; 5 strong sons: Bernard Carpenter-Johnson, Charlie Stokes, Charles Johnson, Anthony Johnson and Brian Johnson; 4 wonderful siblings: Moses Anderson, Sam Anderson, Betsy Tucker and Anita Graves; a host of close net grandchildren and great grandchildren, several nieces and nephews and other loving family and friends.
