Patty Gail Johnson

d. July 6, 2017


Patty Gail Johnson, 63, of Chilhowie passed away on July 6, at her home surrounded by her family. 

Born prematurely and with physical disabilities, Patty was fiercely independent and determined to never let her physical limitations hold her back. She was kind, generous and an inspiration to all that knew her. She graduated from Virginia Intermont College with a degree in social work, and was a strong advocate for those with any type of disability, though rarely accepting help for herself. She was a faithful member of the Marion Pentecostal Holiness Church.

She was preceded in death by her father, Ralph Johnson.
