Johnnie Lee Obituary

Mr. Johnnie W. Lee was born on November 15, 1947 to the late Mr. Johnnie and Mrs. Ethel Lee in Eutaw, Alabama. He was preceded in death by his sisters, Rosie Lee and Cleo Wilder; and a brother, Jimmie D. Lee.

Johnnie was a product of Green County Schools and a 1964 graduate of Carver High School. He was a member of Christian Light Church. In later years he was baptized and became a member of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Levi Williams where he served as Chair of the Deacons, Sunday School Teacher, Usher, Layman and Trustee. He also served the late Reverend Dr. Willie Jackson until we left in 2016. On May 8, 2016, he joined First Missionary Baptist Church, East Thomas under the leadership of Reverend George Robinson, Jr. where he was a member of the Number One Usher Board, Men’s Sunday School, and the Noon Day Bible Class. Johnnie was always ready and willing to help anyone he met, and he was a die hard Auburn fan.

He leaves to cherish his memory: the love of his life for fifty-one years, Mattie Lee; daughters, Dianne Cameron Lee and Addie Lee Moore (Donald); grandson, Jakkar Bishop; godsons, Michael and Gabriel Ellison; three brothers, Walter Lee (Shirley), Jeffery Lee (Merry), Arthur (Debbie); sisters, Celesta Steele, Addie Lee, Barbara Roberts and Janice Lee; four sisters-in-law, Jeannetta Lee, Margaret Ellison, Brenda Reed (Sylvester) and Mary Hill; aunt, Betty Lee; one uncle, a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends, and a special neighbor and friend, Mrs. Barbara Parham.
