Tally Sue Johnson was born on July 25, 1952 to the union of Levi and Elsie Ben Johnson in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.

Tally Sue served as an Usher; she worked with the kitchen ministry and was a member of the choir. She was educated in the Arkadelphia school district and was a proud student of Peake High School. Prior to integration she was a cheerleader her 10th and 11th grade year and sung in the school choir. She graduated from Arkadelphia High School in 1970.

She enjoyed singing, dancing and a good hand of cards. She was a dedicated employee of Wal-Mart. In April 2017 she received her 15 years commemorative pin and certificate. She enjoyed meeting and greeting customers. Tally Sue was blessed to be the beloved mother of Brandy, who was the apple of her eye. She enjoyed “keeping” her grandson, Broderick and her girls.
