Geraldine Johnston Reed

Geraldine Johnston Reed went home to be with the Lord on May 22, 2018. She was born on March 27, 1926 to Benjamin Thomas and Eula Williams Johnston in Summit. She was the fifth of twelve children. She married Grady Reed in 1950, and they had two daughters and one son. When Grady was transferred with A & P from McComb, the family moved to Jackson, Vicksburg, Long Beach and New Orleans. In 2000, they moved back home to Summit. In late 2013, the couple moved to Richardson, TX to live with their daughter and her husband.

Mrs. Reed was a member of Sachse First United Methodist Church in Texas. In Summit she was a member of her home church, Johnston Chapel United Methodist Church; and in every place she lived, she was part of a church community. God, family, friends, and church were her life. She worked hard to make sure family and friends were cared for in all the ways she could, following Jesus example. She served her church working with the womens group and children. She was a wonderful cook! Family and friends often planned visits with the family around meal times. She enjoyed being with family and friends, watching her granddaughters sporting events, and serving God though the church. She will be remembered for her kind nature, loving heart, and delightful spirit. We thank God for blessing our lives with this precious woman!

She is preceded in death by her parents, Benny and Eula Williams Johnston; sisters, Flora Johnston Freeman, Eva Johnston Kenna, Erma Johnston Stockton; brothers, Clyde Johnston, Glen Johnston, and Jewel Johnston; and daughter Raymonde Reed.

Visitation will be Thursday, May 24, 2018 from 6 until 8 PM at Johnston Chapel United Methodist Church and Friday, May 25, 2018 from 10 until services at 11 AM at Johnston Chapel United Methodist Church with Bro. Greg Smith officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

Survivors include her husband Grady Reed; daughter Susan Harris and husband Ron of Richardson, TX; son, David Reed of New Orleans, LA; granddaughter Amanda Morgan and husband Mike of Frisco, TX; and great grandson, Parker Reed Morgan of Frisco. She is also survived by siblings Floyd Johnston, Bryant Johnston, and Lemelia Johnston Boone and numerous in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
