Lynda Frances Haynes Johnson“Well done, Good and Faithful Servant”…
are the first words Lynda Frances Haynes Johnson heard at 3:30 a.m., Wednesday, September 14, 2022, when she passed from this world into eternity.
She was born July 17, 1947, in Jackson, TN to Freddie Ross Haynes and Lucille Irene Wheatley Haynes of Beech Bluff, TN, who preceded her in death.
She temporarily leaves behind her sister, Janetta, and husband Paul Smith of Jackson, TN
Her daughters Kim and husband Michael Grubbs of Fort Worth and Lora Clark of Lawrenceburg along with her grandchildren, Taylor and Emily Clark, Andrea, Kelsey, Michael, and Brandon Grubbs.
Niece: Tana and Barry Fleming and (daughter, Lauren and Trevor Paulos)
Nephew: Jason and Suzy Smith (children Emma, Aaron, & Carter)
Niece: Tiffany and Houston McSwain (son, Haynes) all of Jackson, TN
She had numerous remaining Haynes, Wheatley, and Grissom, first and second cousins, and two precious aunts Betty Haynes and Betty Wheatley, both in California.
Lynda married George Anthony Johnson from Henderson, TN at age 17, the week she graduated high school and they had two daughters.
At the end of her marriage, she moved to Texas, completed Bible College at Calvary Cathedral in Fort Worth, and became an ordained minister of the Gospel. She volunteered in the church as a greeter, then became the receptionist in the administrative office. She soon followed the Lord’s Calling to evangelize in every corner of this great country that she loved. She boldly stood on some of the most dangerous street corners in America praying with the lost for their Salvation and interceding on behalf of those who continued to wander.
She left the position as a church receptionist to work in the Harris Methodist Health Care System.
In the mid-1990s, Lynda moved to Brooklyn, New York, to help a couple, she met through street ministry, with their church in the lower East side of Manhattan while she worked for Bloomingdale’s department store.
Three years later, the birth of her first grandchild brought her back to Tennessee. She worked briefly at Vanderbilt Hospital and then took a secretarial position at Thomas Nelson Publishing in Nashville before moving back to Lawrenceburg, Tennessee.
Her grandchildren were her greatest treasures, whom she loved wholeheartedly and prayed for fervently.
Her ministry gradually transitioned from traveling and going out to all the land, to one of stationary, peaceful, and prayerful intercession. Whenever she saw a need in anyone, including outside of her family, she did whatever she could to meet that need.
She continuously sought God’s Purpose for her life and lived it encouraging those who crossed her life’s path to do the same.
