Renee Johnston

Katie “Renee” Peace Johnston, 61, of the Morgan City area died Friday, April 28, 2023, at her residence.

Mrs. Johnston was born March 9, 1962, in Brewton to R.B. Peace and Sarah Louise Batts Peace. She was married to James “Rocky” Dillard Johnston Jr. for 35 years.

She was a faithful member of Highland Baptist Church where she served as the church pianist and taught children’s Sunday school for over 20 years.

After teaching in private elementary schools, she was employed by the Morgan County Commission on Aging as a senior center director. She enjoyed her work at various senior centers and loved her involvement with the patrons who became an extended family. 

She was also a big fan of Bluegrass music and many weekends could be found at a singing or a festival somewhere. And, of course, there was Alabama football.

She loved everyone she met and had made many, many friends, not only in the surrounding communities, but in many other states as well.

She is survived by her husband: James “Rocky” Johnston Jr.; and two aunts: Hazel Grubbs and Alma Batts.

She was preceded in death a brother: George Peace.
