Ms. Linda Emily Johnson-Coulter, the seventh child to the union of the late Rev. Johnnie and Ophelia Clark-Johnson, was born in Dawson, Georgia (Terrell County). Linda peacefully transitioned from her earthly home on the 10th of March 2021.
She received her childhood education in the Dougherty County School System. Linda was a 1972 graduate of Monroe High School. After graduation, Linda moved to Washington, D.C. and began her career with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. She later retired from Proctor and Gamble after 22 years.
