Geraldine Johnson-Davis was born June 13, 1949, in Bogalusa, to the union of Deacon Eddie Johnson Sr. and Celestina Marañon Johnson, then raised in the loving care of Willie and Adlee Kennedy. On Sunday, April 4, 2021, she peacefully entered into eternal rest at the age of 71.

She was preceded in death by her parents; grandparents, Rev. Joseph Johnson Sr. and Alma Jane Pittman Taylor Johnson; her dearest uncle, Rev. W.J.; brothers, Andrew, Willie J. and Eddie Jr.; and a stillborn child.

Geraldine is survived by her loving husband of 21 years, Lee Jerone Davis; siblings, Vial Rodney (Claudia), Rev. John W., Sr. (Burnett) Frederick, Beverly Magee, Lee Bilberry, Barbara (Alfredo) Gatdula, and Jeanette Johnson; children, Jacque Keil, Michelle Keil, Curtis Keil, and Rachelle Keil (Walter Smith); grandchildren, Kristian Russell, Harold “Mark” Williams, Harold “Joe” Augustin III, Marchell Navarre, Keilab Russell, Jaia Smith, and Aja Smith, also affectionately known as “My (her) seven grands;” and beloved son (pet) who she loved most of all, Mister.
