Obituary

Elnora A. Johnson

 
Elnora A. Johnson

Elnora A. Johnson was called home to her eternal resting place on Saturday, February 6th, 2021. 

 

Elnora was born in Omaha, Nebraska to Florence and John Anderson.  Her parents and grandparents owned one of Omaha’s premier catering companies until the late 1950’s.  Her family’s background in culinary arts and event planning led to her genuine love of cooking and entertaining.  As an only child, Elnora enjoyed quiet days and evenings immersing herself in the arts and music.  She was an accomplished and award-winning piano player and an avid reader spending days and nights getting lost in both fiction and non-fiction novels.  Elnora attended Central High School in Omaha Nebraska.  She graduated with honors and was awarded a full an academic scholarship to the University of Denver, Denver Colorado.  While there, she was involved in several campus organizations, and in 1955, she was initiated into the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority; an intercollegiate, historically black Greek lettered sorority dedicated to sisterhood, education, and improving social and economic conditions through community service.  Elnora received her bachelor degree in English and Literary Arts from the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, and her Master’s Degree in English and Library Science.  Before graduating, Elnora met her first husband, relocated to Willingboro, New Jersey, and had 3 children; Ruth Smith Hardrick, Tracey Smith Douglas (Sinclair), and Dayton Dwight Smith (Deana).  Elnora began her professional teaching career in Levittown, later called Willingboro school system, before transitioning to Trenton High School.  In Trenton, she taught English and later became the High School Librarian for over 19 years before retiring in 1998.  In June 1979, Elnora married her beloved husband of 30 (+) years, Allen Johnson (deceased).  Allen was the father to four children; Kerry Johnson (deceased), Gerald Johnson, Donna Johnson Robinson (George) and Carla Johnson Winbush (Kenny).  Elnora, Allen, and their now blended family enjoyed vacationing both nationally and internationally, theater, and family gatherings.

 

Throughout her life, Elnora was committed to mentoring youth, volunteerism, community service and advocacy.  That led to her involvement with professional organizations dedicated to education, leadership, and humanitarianism.  She was a member or donated to organizations such as Top Ladies of Distinction, Inc; Jack and Jill of America, Inc; and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.  Elnora remained an active and committed life member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.  She served on many committees and held leadership positions in the Cherry Hill, New Jersey Chapter, followed by many years in the Willingboro Chapter, Pi Mu Omega as well as the foundation, People Motivating Others.

 

Elnora was a devoted member of Tabernacle Baptist Church, Burlington, New Jersey, and was a Pastor’s Aide.  She rarely missed a service, program, or opportunity to fellowship.  Elnora (affectionately known as “Memom”) is survived by her beloved children, grandchildren, one great grandchild, a long list of mentees, and a host of lifelong friends.
