Lucy Ellis Johnson passed away on February 1, 2008. Lucy was born to James and Lottie Ellis in England, Arkansas on October 20, 1926. Johnson worked for the Bell Systems/AT&T as a telephone operator and staff clerk for almost 30 years. One of the first African American telephone operators in San Francisco, she loved traveling, and her trips abroad to Jordan, Israel, Europe and South Africa.
Lucy was a faithful member of NationTakers Ministries. Her favorite color was purple and her favorite flower, the iris. Lucy always had a kind word to say to everyone; her love for people was evident in her comforting words, quick wit, gentle manner and beautiful smile.
Proceeded in death by brothers James Ellis, Jessie Ellis and sister Laura Davis, Lucy is survived by her loving husband David, her children Douglas, Claire, Michael and Patricia, six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren (soon to be three!).
