Obituary for RHATTA VIRGINIA JOHNSON

Rhatta Virginia Johnson was born on August 5, 1923 to the late Moses and Annie Johnson of Lusby, MD. She attended the Calvert County Public School System. She was second of 5 children (Matilda, James, Hattie and Moses) all which have preceded her in death. She worked numerous years at the Warren Denton Oyster House and then for various families as a housekeeper. At a young age she accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. For the last 15 years she was the Mother of 'Ministry of Love Church' in Upper Marlboro, MD. Mom loved the Lord and loved to praise Him. When the music started playing you could see her shrugging her shoulders in praise. She believed in prayer, when she could no longer kneel she would lay in bed and pray. Her favorite Scripture was Psalm 23. Some of her favorite songs were: 'I'm Running For My Life', 'If You Can't Help Me,Please Don't Stop Me', 'Don't Matter What The Friend May Say'. Some of her favorite sayings were: 'Thanks The Lord', 'Mercy', 'Just Broad Tis Long', 'I'm Ready To Go Now.' And when asked how she was feeling her reply would be: 'Fine As Silk.' She loved flowers and watching birds from the window. Mom always loved to be around her grands, great-grands and great great-grandchildren. She would always ask 'Whey Da Girls.' Mom lived a long and blessed life and will be truly missed by everyone who knew her Elmer Mackall and Rhatta were the parents of 11 children of which two are deceased. She leaves to cherish her memories nine children: Eilene (Irvin) Beverly of Lusby, MD; Ollie (Claude) Williams of Suitland, MD; Madora (Henry) Jones of Lusby, MD; Elmer, Jr. (Patrice) of Waldorf, MD; Mary Rose (Steven) Long of Prince Frederick, MD; Margaret Copeland (Barry deceased) of Temple Hills, MD; Thelma (Lorenzo) Keyes of Prince Frederick, MD; Jerome (JoAnne) Mackall of Suitland, MD; Velma (Waverlyn) Mack of Killeen, TX, and One adopted daughter Mary Chase-Thomas of Suitland, MD; 23 grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren and five great-great grandchildren as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
