Nathalie McSwine Johnson, age 93, of Pine Bluff, passed away Friday, September 20, 2019.

A lifelong resident of Pine Bluff, she was born April 11, 1926 to the late Griffith Ross McSwine and Mercedes Gill McSwine. She graduated from Pine Bluff High School in 1944 and Christian College at Columbia, MO in 1948. Her education culminated with finishing school in Paris, France.

Mrs. Johnson was primarily a homemaker. For five years she worked for the American Red Cross as blood coordinator for Jefferson County. She was also a Cub Scout den mother.

Well known as a “prayer warrior”, Nathalie was a member of First United Methodist Church where she taught Sunday school. She was instrumental in establishing several prayer groups in Pine Bluff, including the Little Bit of Heaven Prayer Group. Mrs. Johnson also organized the first interracial prayer group in the city.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Mercedes McSwine; and two grandchildren, McKenzie Johnson and John Johnson, IV.

Survivors include her husband, Siegfried Johnson, whom she married on February 4, 1950; three sons, Ross Johnson of Pine Bluff, Rev. Siegfried Johnson (Sherry) of Hot Springs Village, and John Johnson, III (Karen) of Dallas, TX; five grandchildren, Page Johnson, Ashley Johnson, Brittany Rupple, John Allen Rupple, and Cameron Johnson; and four great-grandchildren, Christian Taylor, Evy Wagnon, Nathan Wagnon, and Avery Wagnon

The funeral service will be held Saturday, September 28, 2019, 10:00 a.m. at First United Methodist Church with Rev. Mike Morey officiating. Interment will follow in Graceland Cemetery by Ralph Robinson & Son Funeral Directors.

So sorry to hear of her passing. She was my Sunday school teacher and her phone number was one digit different from my mother's work number. No telling how many times I called her by mistake when I was little. She was always so kind to me.
