Kim Addison Johnson was born on March 15, 1965 in Inglewood, CA. Joy came at 7:25 p.m. on March 17, 2019 when Kim transitioned from this life to her heavenly home where she was met by a joyous and musical welcome.
Kim attended primary and secondary school in Alexandria, LA. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Dillard University and Master’s Degree in Social Work from Southern University at New Orleans. As a licensed clinical social worker, she had an illustrious career and had the opportunity to influence many people. At the time of her passing, Kim was the Clinical Manager of Phoenix Family Life Center. She not only worked hard giving the best of her professional services to her clients but also was very supportive of her fellow workers. She had a very vibrant and outgoing personality with a generous spirit. Kim was highly valued, respected, and beloved by many people who crossed her path because she highly valued, respected, and loved others. As a Christian, she followed the example of Christ in accepting people as they are. Because Kim refused to discriminate against or look down on others, people from all walks of life naturally gravitated toward her.
At an early age, Kim gave her hand to the minister and her heart to the Lord and Savior; at that time she became part of the fellowship of Christians and was baptized by the late Rev. Dr. E.D. Pierce at First New Light Missionary Baptist Church. Throughout her life she utilized her talents and gifts, especially her musical gift, for the glory of God. In fact, one of her first loves was gospel music, and she served faithfully with enthusiasm as a musician for all kinds of organizations and activities including Sunday School, Junior Mission, Red Circle, and the Baptist Training Union (BTU). She willingly assisted with the music at the church associations and even at the Veterans Affair (V.A.) Medical Center and various nursing homes for holiday programs.
Kim leaves to cherish her memories two children, Taylor M. Addison of Houston, TX and Kennedy L. Johnson of Alexandria, LA; grandchild Ean Danielle Addison of Houston, TX; mother Theresa Earthly, father James Addison and his wife June, maternal grandmother Rosa Anna Earthly all of Alexandria, LA, and paternal grandfather Willis Kite and his wife Shirley of Detroit, Michigan; her loving partner, Bruce Scott of Alexandria, LA; sister Angela Addison Freeman and her husband Michael of Washington, D.C.; two brothers, Michael Addison of Atlanta, GA and James J. Addison and his wife Shaughnessy of Fort Worth, TX; two godchildren Breona N. Earthly and Chad Bookman and his wife LeAnn of Alexandria, LA.
She will also remain dear to the hearts of her many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
