In Loving

Nancy Bevell Johnson

Nov. 26, 1935 – May 25, 2021

Nancy Lee Bevell Johnson, 85, of Henrico, VA passed away peacefully into the loving arms of Jesus on May 25, 2021.

She was born in Boydton, VA. and was preceded in death by her father and mother Henry and Madeline Bevell, her brother Clarence R. Gillespie Sr., her husband of 55 years James C. Johnson, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.  She is survived by her sons and daughters-in-law Mark and Andrea Johnson of Chesterfield, VA and Reid and Kim Johnson of Mechanicsville, VA as well as her grandchildren Nick West, Erica Mitchell (Lee), Grant and Paul Johnson, and great-granddaughter Madeline Mitchell.

Nancy was a student at Mary Washington College of the University of Virginia until 1955, completed her nurses training at Johnston Willis Hospital in 1958, and worked until her retirement in 1998 as a registered nurse at Tucker Hospital (Tucker Pavilion).  The compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience she showed to her patients, co-workers, friends, and family, reflected her Christian faith, and she will be greatly missed.  She was a proud member of Parham Road Baptist Church where she served as a deacon.

She will be buried privately, and the family will hold a memorial service for her at Parham Road Baptist church on Sunday, June 27, 2021 at 1:30pm.  In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Parham Road Baptist Church or the Alzheimer’s Association.
