MAXTON - If we were in Laurinburg at Scotland Memorial Hospital Monday, October 12, outside the door of Pearl Johnson’s room, we may have heard her sing to the Lord. “Precious Lord take my hand, lead me on through this land, I am tired, I am weak, I am worn. Through the storms through the night lead me on to the light, Precious Lord take my hand lead me on.” At 10:30 in the evening the Lord answered her song and said, “Pearl, your mansion is ready, come and get your reward. With this Pearl Johnson left this world of pain and strife to be forever with her God and family members that have passed on before.

Cora Pearl Johnson was born in Scotland Memorial Hospital to John Arthur and Lucy Chambers Johnson on February 29, 1948. She accepted God in her early life and is a member of Household of Faith Church in Maxton, Pastor John W. Johnson. She received her education at R. B. Dean School in Maxton, NC. She is the mother of three loving sons.
