Mary Adelaide Johnson June 26, 1932 - May 26, 2012 Mary Adelaide Johnson was taken home by our Lord on May 26, 2012. She was born to Floyd and Fanny Felts on June 26, 1932 in the small town of Des Arc, Arkansas. She married her high school sweetheart, Delie Johnson. Together they shared 62 years of family and marriage. Mary was a long time resident of Hawthorne and was employed by Hughes Aircraft for 35 years. She began as a secretary and eventually become a Human Resource Manager, recruiting engineers. Mary was a much beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She is survived by her husband, Delie Johnson, her son Randol Johnson, and her daughter Katrina and son-in-law Jim Doersam. She will also be greatly missed by her grandchildren, Katherine (Jason), James (Kimberly), Taryn (Jason), Laurel (Mat), Dillon, and Jacob (Bekah); and great-grandchildren Brianne, Ryan, and Scarlett. Mary was better known by her family as "Granny". She will affectionately be remembered for her spunk, her wit and intellect, sense of humor, her forthright honesty, and a fabulous sense of style, but most of all for her generous spirit and great love she had for each member of her family. Services will be held to celebrate her life on May 30, 2012 at 12:00 PM At Rice Mortuary in Torrance.

  1. I would like to express my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. The loss of someone close is difficult to bear but may it comfort you to know that others care. I have found great encouragement when reading the beautiful words penned in the Bible at Isaiah 25:8 ” He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces.” May this promise also comfort you in this difficult time.

  2. “Then maidens will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.” – Jeremiah 31:13 Our deepest sympathy and strongest prayers go out to you all! Love, Jason Walker & Katherine High

  3. Granny, Thank you for being a part of my life.I will miss you dearly. You will forever be held in my heart with the fondest of memories and the sparkle of your smile. Love Katherine
