Obituary

Agatha Elizabeth Johnson passed away July 6, 2022, in Newport News, VA, at the age of 52. Daughter of Fay Johnson and the late Clifton Johnson, Ms. Johnson was born on July 27, 1969, in Walkers Wood, St. Ann, Jamaica.

She attended Kingdom Life Christian Church in Williamsburg and was for fifteen years a valued part of that close community of fellowship and worship.

Ms. Johnson was known by many at William & Mary and in Williamsburg as a wise, warm, and trusted colleague. Her career in hospitality included the Williamsburg Inn, Aramark, Sodexo, and the William & Mary President's Office. A vital member of the president's office team, she was a respected partner to two presidents, their spouses and families, the Chancellor, members of the Board of Visitors, and colleagues in many roles across the university.

In addition to her mother, Fay, Ms. Johnson is survived by her daughter, Moya Breakcliffe, and eight siblings. These include her six sisters – Marcia, Freda, Michelle, and Melody Johnson, Charmaine Johnson Brown, and Marlene Johnson Hunter – and her two brothers, Harold and Trevor Johnson.

A Celebration of Life program will take place on Friday, July 29 at 3:00 p.m. at the William & Mary Alumni House, followed by a reception.

At a later date, Agatha will be buried next to her father in Walkers Woods, St. Ann, Jamaica, surrounded by her devoted family and a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.
