LaDonya Denise (Hardin) Johnson

January 12, 1962 ~ November 11, 2021 (age 59)


LaDonya Denise (Hardin) Johnson, recently moved to Frisco, Texas from Victorville, CA. during 2020 with dreams of opening Desert Skye; an event planning business to derive ideas, style and taste from a broad and diverse range of sources.

On November 11, 2021 LaDonya closed her eyes for eternal rest after battling COVID-19.

She is survived by her spouse, Les Johnson; daughter, Jessica Myles; son, Michael Myles; two grandchildren, Braxton Myles and Daiji Myles Ackbar; siblings, George (Rosalind) Johnson, Mattie Jackson, LaMikka (Terrance) Armstrong; and a bonus sister, Rita (Markeef) Fluellan. LaDonya also had numerous dear cousins, nephews and nieces close to her heart.

LaDonya was preceded in death by Paul Owens (Father-2002) a performer of The Dixie Hummingbirds, the Swan Silvertones and the Sensantional Nightingales; and Dorothy Faye (Brazzle) Johnson (Mother-2017) a teacher, avid musician and also former Broadway performer.

LaDonya was truly a gift from God, she dedicated her life to Christ at an early age. She was baptized at New Bethel Baptist Church Longview, Tx. She was a living testimony designed to overcome the ongoing health challenges in her life.

LaDonya graduated from Longview High School Class of 1979. During LaDonya's early 20's she ventured to California to pursue her love for theater. She attended Los Angeles Southwest College and studied Theater Arts. She also achieved a Collegiate Oscar for Best Actor staring in the stage play Screams in the Night.

While living in California, LaDonya met the love of her life, Les Johnson in 1991 and a holy union was formed March 19, 1994. Together they embraced the love of God and shared their passion for Christ through Christian counseling, life groups and praise & worship services. Throughout the years, LaDonya was affiliated with New Bethel Baptist Church [Longview, Texas], Bible Teaching Ministry (Longview, Texas), Sunrise Church (Victorville, California) and most recently Strong Tower Church (Garland, Texas).

May LaDonya rest in peace in God's heavenly home knowing she left an indelible mark on the lives of all she touched. May her radiant personality and everlasting light continue to provide comfort to those who loved her...Grace and Peace.
