Corennia “Tina” Johnson, Russell Springs

Corennia “Tina” Johnson, of Russell Springs, passed away Saturday, April 15, 2023, at the Jean Waddle Hospice Care Center in Somerset.

Tina was born September 16, 1944, in McCreary County, daughter of the late Earl and Grace Hines Shepherd.  She was a woman of many talents; Tina could paint a car or weld a boat; she could work in a flower bed or catch a mess of fish.  She was known to be a very frugal lady.   One of Tina’s favorite things was going “thrifting”.  She loved going to yard sales in search of a bargain.

She loved her family most.  If you ran into Tina at any time, you would be likely to hear her say’ “Let me tell you about my grandkids”.

She is survived by her daughter, Susan Marlow, of Russell Springs; her sister and brother-in-law, Virginia and Paul Stevens, of Russell Springs; her grandchildren, Stephanie (and Christopher) Mink, of Nancy, Jayce (and Whitney) Shepperd, of Nancy, Nash Wright, of Bardstown and Mitchell Lee Marlow, of Columbia; and her great-grandchildren, Braxton Wright and Paisley Shepperd.

Along with her parents, Tina is preceded in death by her husband, Oliver “J.R.” Johnson, Jr.; her son, Mitchell Marlow; her daughter, Leah Roberts Wilson; and her brothers, Munk Shepherd, Tab Shepherd, Earl Shepherd, Johnny Shepherd and Red Shepherd.

Funeral services are 2:00 p.m., CST, Wednesday, April 19, 2023, at Bernard Funeral Home, with Bro. Rick Stump officiating.  Interment will follow in Bradley’s Pleasure Cemetery.

Visitation will be held after 11:00 a.m., CST, Wednesday, at Bernard Funeral Home, until time for services.
