November 22, 1933 - December 24, 2020
Roberta “Meralene” Pollard Johnson, born November 22, 1933, our precious Mom and Memaw, passed peacefully from this world to her eternal home in glory on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2020. Waiting with Jesus to meet her there were her parents Mayme and Henry Pollard; sisters Odella, Mildred, Nellie, and Amilea; brothers Henry and James; husband Kenneth; grandson Jimmy; and great-grandson Clark. Meralene was a kind, loving, generous woman who sought to serve the Lord with all her heart. She was a long-time, faithful member of Wildwood Baptist Church where she devoted herself to working with the children there for many years. She was also active in the WMU and missions and loved singing in the choir. Family meant everything to her and she was always there for us to share in every joy or sorrow. She was employed in the pharmacy at Lowe’s Drug Store for many years, making friends throughout the community as she continued working there until she was 80 years old. Meralene is survived by her children Karen (Steve) Reagan, Beth Hearon, Mark (Missy) Johnson; grandchildren Jessica (Toki) McCray, Jake (Allison) Reagan, Andy (Kacie) Hearon, Matt (Jamey) Hearon, Chad Johnson; great grandchildren Donovan, Elijah and Brystol McCray, Lily and Sam Reagan, Abram and Carol Hearon, Avery and Ella Hearon; Sister Jean Malone; special devoted niece Gina Malone; sisters-in-law, Mary (Dale) McCammon, Judy (Bill) Clabough, Jane (Hugh) Hardman; many beloved nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank all the wonderful caregivers who have helped us take care of Mom.
