Zebedee Johnson

(WEDOWEE) Zebedee Johnson, 69, son of the late Nathaniel Johnson, Sr., and Rosie Ridley Johnson passed away on Aug. 16, 2023 at Heritage Hospice in Marietta, Ga.

Zebedee was born Aug. 18, 1953, in Randolph County, and later moved to Marietta, Ga., where he was a resident for over 40 years.

As a young man in Randolph County, Mr. Johnson was a Union Chapel United Methodist Church member.

He was a laborer in building construction for many years, where he learned many construction craft skills. Zebedee was an all-around outdoorsman; he loved hunting and fishing. However, Mr. Johnson’s most cherished moments were the times he spent making memories with his family and friends.

He was preceeded in death by his father and his mother; five brothers: James Johnson, George Johnson, I.V. Johnson, Johnny Johnson and Nathaniel Johnson Jr; and one sister, Geneva Lay.

He is survived by three sisters: Florence Watts and Linda Smith, both of Wedowee, and Judy Johnson of Atlanta; and a host of family and friends from Cobb County, Ga., and Randolph County.

A celebration of life ceremony will be held Wednesday, August 23 at noon at Union Chapel United Methodist Church in Wedowee, with interment to follow immediately after.
