February 29, 1932 July 13, 2020
There are condolences waiting approval on FLORINE's Tribute wall
Florine Brooks Johnson, age 88, passed away peacefully July 13, 2020; at her home. She was born February 29, 1932, in Prince Frederick, Md; to Dory and Tersa Brooks. Florine was raised on Christian beliefs which laid the foundation of her life time walk with Christ. Florine was a member at St. Edmonds United Church where she attended every Sunday until she could no longer attend. She sang on the Senior Choir as well as a Communion Stewardess for the church she loved so much. She received her education in Calvert County Public Schools System.

Florine loved to read her bible and would recite verses effortlessly, crossword puzzles, loved to travel and take mini road trips to enjoy the beautiful sceneries, She always made time to chat with her friends and family about her Heavenly Father. She was a mother to anyone that she encountered, embraced and loved everyone that needed that mother figure. She always said, there’s good in everyone, sometimes you had to look a little harder but she always found it. Florine had a passion for cooking; with that passion she served many Calvert Countians her southern style cooking as she worked in restaurants in Calvert. Florine loved and touch many lives, teaching some the basic kindness, while others to search for a relationship with her Heavenly Father. Anyone that knew her will say she was a woman of Christ. Her favorite phrase as I can clearly hear her say “ Me and My Jesus”. And when she said it, you could feel the love and commitment she had with her Heavenly Father.

Florine was preceded in death by her husband Melvin Johnson Sr., son Melvin Johnson Jr., daughter Delores Stepney and lifelong companion Howard Percy Mason.

Florine is survived by her sons: George Johnson and Larry and Rowena Johnson, Her daughters: Loretta and Darnell Marion, Linda and Deon Johnson, Joyce and Donald Stepney, Clara Parker, Melvina and Hugo Sr., Frazier, Laverne and Elmer Rovira and Geneva and Joseph Mackall.
