Annabel Burns (Deedie) Johnson, 95, passed away on Tuesday, March 2012 in Franklin, Indiana, with her daughter, Karen Ramsay Johnson, at her side. She was born in Anderson, SC, June 12, 1916, the daughter of Robert and Pearl Burns and sister of the late Roberta Burns Bristow. Predeceased by her husband, William A. Johnson, she is survived by her daughter and by her niece Roberta Bristow Abadie, great-nieces Jessica Abadie Wainwright and Amanda Abadie of New Orleans, LA, and her great-nieces Elizabeth Fensin and Leslie Collins of Raleigh, NC. Margaret and Marian Tanner, Laura White Wiley, Kathy Shortridge, Emily Shortridge, Vishant Shah, Ashton, Anastasia, Ayley, Jessamine, and Samara Shortridge occupied a special place in her heart. She was for many years a first-grade teacher at Lawrenceville Primary School, where she blessed the lives of generations of children. Teaching was her greatest passion and greatest gift: in thirty-five years of teaching, every student whom she taught succeeded, and she was extremely proud of every one of them! Her intelligence, wry humor, and genuine kindness made her a wonderful mother, wife, and friend. She will be greatly missed.
