Retha Jean Johnson was born on November 28, 1942 in Tarboro, North Carolina to the late Mason and Eujean Johnson. After she graduated from high school, she moved to Elizabeth, New Jersey in 1960 and later to Linden in 1972.

Retha was employed as a Chemical Operator at Exxon Mobil in Edison, retiring in 2004. Previously, she worked at the New Jersey Employment Office and later American Cyanamid in Linden until they went out of business in the early 1980s.

She was a faithful member of White Rock Baptist Church for 15 years.

Retha loved to cook, shop, read, watch basketball games and spend her leisure time in Atlantic City with her friends. She also enjoyed having quality time with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and other family members.
