Katerya "Sugar" Johnson Obituary

Philippians 1: 21 – 26

“If I live, it will be for Christ, and if I die, I will gain even more. I don’t know what to choose. I could keep on living and doing something useful. It is a hard choice to make. I want to die and be with Christ, because this would be much better. But I know that all of you still need me. This is why I am sure I will stay on to help you grow and be happy in your faith. Then, when I visit you again, you will have good reason to take great pride in Christ Jesus because of me.”

Katerya D’monyea Johnson, affectionately known as “Sugar,” graced this world on Thursday, July 28, 1994. Born to Shalandria Nicole Chisley-Branch and Henry Lorenzo Johnson, her life unfolded with purpose and love. On Sunday, March 3, 2024, Katerya embarked on her next journey beyond earthly bounds.

Motherhood was Katerya’s sacred mantle. With unwavering devotion, she nurtured her two beautiful children, Kyndall and Tristian.
