Ally Grace Johnson
Saltillo-A beautiful, witty, clever, adventurous free spirt, Ally Grace Johnson, age 19, met her Creator on July 8, 2019, a day after being involved in a one car automobile accident near the Auburn Community. She was the daughter of Mark and Allyson Johnson of Saltillo, whose lives she enriched and challenged over her all too brief earthly pilgrimage. Ally Grace attended the public schools of Saltillo and graduated from Saltillo High School in 2018. She was strongly involved in every facet of high school life as a cheerleader, running cross country, archery and other competitive activities. She cheered for Extreme Cheer as well. Ally Grace was a magnet for socializing. Everyone was drawn to her as she was always the life of the party, never meeting a stranger and never dodging a new adventure. She loved kids and worked for Kid’s World in Saltillo for some time. Her independence allowed her to cut a wide swath in a short span. In her always contagious spirit of giving, Ally Grace was an organ/tissue donor in death. Her generosity and that of her family will bring life and health to others as a strong part of her legacy. She was a longtime member of the Birmingham Ridge Baptist Church. This precious soul will be missed by all!
