Anne Longest

Seamstress reaches century mark

Eva H. Johnson will proudly tell you she’s lived in her home on South Lamar Boulevard for 50 years.

Even more proudly, she will tell you at the age of 100, she still lives in that house alone.

Johnson was born on Dec. 1, 1910, two miles west of Banner. She has lived alone since her husband, Willie A. Johnson, died in 1981 at the age of 90. (December 1, 2010, Page 1)
