Mrs. Lyndell Elizabeth Cable Johnson, 89, formerly of Houston Road, Mocksville, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Wednesday, June 22, 2022 at Brookdale Senior Living of Salisbury.

She was born on Jan. 12, 1933 in Davie County to the late Samuel and Dora King Beck Cable.

Lyndell was a 1951 Valedictorian graduate of Cooleemee High School. She was a member of Jerusalem Baptist Church where she attended regularly until moving to Brookdale in 2019. She was a devout Christian lady who loved to cook for her family and church gatherings. She enjoyed gardening in her flowers and vegetable garden. She was a faithful servant alongside her husband for many years in the Baptist ministry. Lyndall was a Proverbs woman. She clothed herself with strength and dignity. She spoke with wisdom, and faithful instruction. She watched over the affairs of her household and did not eat the bread of idleness. Many women do noble things, but she surpassed them all. “Her children arise up, and call her blessed.” (Proverbs 31:28).

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by: her husband, Rev. Jack Rayford Johnson; a granddaughter, Jillian Johnson; 2 sisters, Doris Gayle Sheets, and Betty Ann Mauldin; and 2 brothers, William Daniel Cable, and Samuel Turner Cable.

A funeral service will be conducted at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 25 at Eaton Funeral Chapel with Rev. Fred Carlton officiating. Interment will follow in Jerusalem Baptist Church Cemetery. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home.
