Virginia Long Johnson, 84, of the Pearces Community in Franklin County, NC passed away Thursday morning, August 6, 2020 at her home. She was born on June 9, 1936 to the late Odis S. and Dora W. Long of Wake County. In addition to her parents she was preceded in death by her husband Darrell Moses ‘Pete” Johnson; her brother Owen L. Long, and sisters Rebecca Alford, Louise Davis, Doris Johnson and Clara Long. She was a member of Pearce Baptist Church. Virginia was a teacher in the Franklin County School System for 26 years, retiring from Bunn High School in 1996, continuing to serve as needed several years after her retirement.

She is survived by her son, William “Bill” Johnson; grandchildren, Lauren Gupton (Jonathan), and Graham Horne (Mary) and great-granddaughters, Anna, Aubrey, Mallory, Madison, Morgan and Molly. Also, special friends, Melanie Narramore and Donna O’Neal and several nieces and nephews.

Virginia often shared memories of a Mother and siblings who loved each other and loved the Lord. She enjoyed fishing, even if she didn’t catch anything, she said she enjoyed the peacefulness of being outside. She enjoyed riding all around the farm on her golf cart with her beloved dog Susie. Virginia had written that her fondest memory was one of dancing with her husband Pete at the Senior Citizens Center. The pictures she displayed in her home speak of her greatest joy. Her family. She loved to tell you about her son, grandchildren, great-granddaughters, nieces and nephews and others in her life that she loved. She was appreciative and thankful for everything done for her out love and she will be missed every day.

Graveside services will be held Saturday, August 15th at 2:00 pm at Pearce Baptist Church Cemetery, with Reverend Mark Cottrell officiating.

In lieu of flowers, consider a contribution to Pearce Baptist Church, 4688 Pearces Road, Zebulon, NC 27597. Arrangements are being handled by Lancaster Funeral and Cremation Services, 804 N. Bickett Blvd., Louisburg, NC 27549. Online condolences may be made to

I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of this special lady. Mrs. Johnson was one of my favorite teachers in school. I always looked forward to her classes. I remember her as a very sweet & giving southern lady but someone who didnt take any bull from the trouble makers in class. Mrs. Johnson was a asset to her community & all who knew her. She will be sincerely missed.

I am so sad to hear this. Virginia was a dear friend and wonderful caring teacher.We taught together at Edward Best and Bunn H.S. I will always remember her generosity to students even buying jeans and shirts for those in need. She could make great cakes too. I was inspired and enriched by knowing her. Peace be with the family.
