Martha entered this life on August 12, 1935, in Montgomery County, TN to the late Solomon and Annie Marie Nash Knox. She was a member of Gateway Baptist Church, where her presence brought comfort and strength to many. Her daily reading of the Bible exemplified her deep faith and spiritual connection. In her leisure time, Martha found joy in engaging in activities such as playing sudoku, bingo, and participating in trivia nights at the nursing home where she resided. From her childhood days spent riding her bike to her later years of sharing laughter and knowledge with friends and loved ones, Martha's spirit brightened the lives of those around her.

In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Gilbert Hershel “Pete” Johnson; daughter, Joyce Johnson; brothers, Thurman, Charles, Marvin, and John Crawford; sisters, Madolyn Conatser, and Imogene Lokey. Martha is also preceded in death by several half-brothers and half-sisters.

Johnson, Bobby Joe Johnson (Lori), Jeffery Dean Johnson (Tish); grandchildren, Stacy Steelman, Kenny Epps, Kelly Lane, Adrienne Johnson, and Brian Johnson; eight great-grandchildren, eight great-great-grandchildren, and her siblings, Kenneth Crawford, and Edna McWhorter.
