A graveside service for Leta Mae Gibson Johnson, 87, will be held Jan. 26 at 2 p.m. in Rehoboth United Methodist Church Cemetery with the Rev. John Watts and Pastor Tom Eastty officiating.

Mrs. Johnson of Galivants Ferry passed away at her residence Jan. 24, surrounded by her loving family.

Mrs. Leta Mae attended Mt. Trolley Freewill Baptist Church for more than 40 years, and for the past 10 years she has attended Rehoboth United Methodist Church. She loved her family and her cat “Minnie” very much. 

She also enjoyed gardening, growing flowers, going to church, visiting the sick and sending cards to others. Going to yard sales, shopping and singing were also things she enjoyed.
