Viewing for the public will be Friday, July 15th from 6pm to 7pm. Interment: Mt. Harmony Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the American Breast Cancer Society and Fisk University. Obituary Sonja Maxine French Johnson was born November 8,1938 in Albany, Georgia where she was raised by Jasper and Thelma Orse French. She graduated from Fisk University and received her Master's in Human Resources from Georgia State University. She retired from the State of Georgia after working there for over 25 years. She was a member of Warren Memorial United Church where she served with great dedication. Her passions were Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Kiwanis Club of Atlanta, competitive card games, and supporting her family. Sonja was a world traveler and an avid bridge player with membership in multiple bridge clubs. She was a member of the Red Hatters, Girlfriends Social Club, and the Literary Lunch Bunch Book Club. She had a series of "ones" in her life. She was an only child, her son, Dr. Bruce January and her grandson Justin January is an only child as well. Her husband Norman Richard Johnson added what she never had-a loving larger family that supported her through life. The Johnsons were her bedrock. Norman was a devoted husband for 29 years before his passing in 2017. Her son Norman Ricardo Johnson (Edviena) and her grandson Jason Armstrong also preceded her in death. Sonja is survived by her sons Bruce January and Carl Johnson (Gail) and her daughter Patricia Solomon, who was most supportive during her final years. Her grandchildren Ronda Christian, Christopher Johnson (Sonia), Lisa Tolliver (Beau'), Shawna Armstrong, Allison Shannon (Marquis), Lauren Johnson, Joshua Johnson (Alexis), and Justin January added richness and years of love and laughter to her life. Sonja leaves behind eight delightful great-grandchildren and a host of other relatives and friends.
