Obituary

Johnnie Lee Smith, 92, passed away on Thursday, November 19, 2020. He was born on September 9, 1928 to the late, Vellie Watts-Johnson in Alabama. He received his primary education and spent the early part of his life upstate, where he worked at the newspaper in Long Island, New York. He was later united in holy matrimony to Olivia Roberson-Smith, who preceded him in death. Johnnie was a former member of Bennett Union Missionary Baptist Church, but was presently a member of St. John First Born Holiness Church.
