Vrilla Mae Johnson (Saffle)

 

Vrilla was born December 2, 1933 in Harlan, Kentucky.  She was one of fifteen children, being number 13.  Her parents were Richard and Elisabeth Brock.  She met and married Paul Robert Johnson and they had nine children together.  Paul and Robbie Johnson of Van Buren, AR; Melody and Bob Moon of Beebe, AR; Cheryl Reed of TN, Pam and BJ Smith of Searcy, Sandy and Jeff Lawrence of Oklahoma, Donald Johnson of Judsonia, Ronald and Kim Johnson of Searcy, Ricky and Monica Johnson of Bald Knob.  She was preceded in death by her son Tommy Johnson; her grandchildren, Heather Douglas, Josh Johnson, Erika Johnson (preceded), Michael Moon, Donnie Moon, Nathan Moon, Thomas Johnson, Matthew Johnson, Erik Reed, Stephen Reed, Robert Ashley Johnson, Tabitha Helling, Lyndsey Lawrence, Rachel Lawrence, Christopher Johnson, Richelle Treece, Sarah Dorman, Bradley Johnson, Zach Johnson, Jordan Johnson, Whitney Swindle, and Macey Gilmore, as well as many great-grandchildren.

 

Vrilla loved her children dearly.  As much as she loved them, she loved the Lord and going to church and serving the Lord.  She was always helping others whether in cooking for someone or giving something, she had.  She always had a smile and pat on the back for you, and a word of encouragement.  If you were lucky you got some chocolate, no bake cookies or peanut butter balls.  She was a hard-working woman.  If you needed a dress, 3 pc suit or shirt and even pants for the boys she would stay up all night until she got it made.  She was one of a kind.  She will truly be missed, but she is in a better place and is at peace and rest.
