Mildred Ann Rose Johnson Scholarship
Mildred Ann Rose Johnson was born November 11, 1938 and was raised in Nelson County, VA. She moved to Roanoke, Virginia at an early age and remained there until her death on May 10, 2014. She was a single mother of 5 children, a grandmother and great-grandmother, her family was the love of her life. She was a hard worker who raised her children in public housing and a person that took pride in her home and always welcomed visitors. Mildred Ann Rose Johnson was known by many as “Corine” and was a woman who believed in putting God and her family first. When it came to worshiping the Lord, she always made sure that her children attended church. She had a natural talent for cooking and was known for her cakes, pies, homemade cornbread and macaroni & cheese. Her calming spirit and witty personality would always light up the room. The wisdom and family values that she shared is something people will remember for years to come.
Corine worked for over 30 years as a Dietary Aid for Community Hospital and in this role she was responsible for preparing food for the hospital cafeteria and patients. In her spare time, she not only loved spending time with her family, but she had a special love for her dogs Biscuit and Oreo. These dogs gave her so much joy and quickly become part of the family. Additionally, she loved reading, gardening and sending greeting cards to everyone, she never met a stranger. She also loved to pamper herself by being a frequent customer to the beauty parlor for hair styling in her favorite style.
The Mildred Ann Rose Johnson Scholarship was established September 25, 2014 and was an official 501(c)(3) organization January 1, 2015. This scholarship was created by the family in memory of her. She was a person willing to help anyone; therefore, this scholarship will not only be a representation of her, but also a way to honor her memory. Higher education was very important to her and something she encouraged her family to achieve. The scholarship will be used to award a student in the Roanoke City Public schools that is a graduating senior attending a 4 year College or University as a first time college student or incoming Freshman.
