Eartha L Johnson, truly a virtuous woman, closed her eyes on November 19, 2017 and finally acquired the rest she sought with the confidence that she had fulfilled her destiny with a job well done. She was born May 19, 1933 to the late William Grant and Rosa Bell Nimmons Grant in Denmark South Carolina, the second of 6 children, all of whom predeceased her.

The family moved to Brooklyn NY at a young age. Eartha received her education in the public schools graduating in 1952. She was a great student often being recognized for her diction and oratorical skills.

Eartha was always active in encouraging others to reach their goals and accomplish their destiny. She raised her family to be committed to leaving an impact in the world in which they rented space. As an acknowledgement to her ideals a scholarship fund has been set up to assist students pursuing higher education.
