Deborah (known as Dj by most of her friends and family) Jean Johnson,18 of Uniontown was born December 19th 2001 in Uniontown Arkansas surrounded by her family. She left this earthly world June 25th 2020. She was preceded in death by paternal grandparents, Rufus Johnson and Faye Acree, maternal grandfather, Harrison Perry; one nephew, Pete Clenney.
She is survived by her loving family, Jimmie and Lisa Johnson (parents) and siblings Jimmie II, Quintin, Alesha, Liza, Miriam, Jonadab, Hannah, Joshua, Leah, Jason, and John Mark; She is also survived by numerous neices and nephews as well as friends and family. Dj was a little spit fire who loved her family and friends as well as her pets (her horse, Sassy) her dog Maxie Mae, and her cat “B”. She enjoyed riding horses, dirt track racing, motorcycle riding, eating tacos, and most of all, terrorizing her family by giving them a hard time. She showed no mercy to her sisters boyfriends (and has allegedly even broken a few of their ribs.) Even though her time with us was cut short she stole many hearts and took a big chunk of them with her.

Viewing will be Tuesday, June 30, 2020 from 2:00 to 6:00 P.M. at Ocker Funeral Home 700 Jefferson Street Van Buren.

Funeral service will be at 10:00 AM Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at Ocker Memorial Chapel in Van Buren with burial at Sarah Grove Cemetery in Van Buren under the direction of Ocker Funeral Home.

Pallbearers will be her brothers.
