Micah Johnson

Micah Alexis Johnson, age 21, died suddenly and without warning Monday, Jan. 29, 2018, at Ochsner Medical Center after battling a 3-day illness.

Micah, a beloved daughter, sister, teacher and friend, was an LSU student majoring in early childhood education, a beloved tumbling coach at Flips and Fitness, an accomplished pianist, an energetic drummer, a student of Krav Maga, a dedicated Kid-zone ministry leader at Victory Harvest Church, a life-group member of Antioch Community Church, and most importantly, a “child of the one true King.”

Micah loved life! Her boundless energy, endless chatter, and overflowing joy electrified any room she entered. She passionately loved every child and every animal, and they loved her. She was a defender of the defenseless and a champion of the underdog.

She embodied Micah 6:8 – “…and what does the Lord require of you, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.”

Micah adored her family and their many travels across the world, including two of her favorites, Disney World and Destin. She loved ANY time with friends, four-wheeling, Segway adventures, zip-lining, horseback riding, bonfires, and all things outdoors.

She was a born teacher with a heart of gold and would pour out her diverse giftings on anyone in need. Micah loved!

A celebration of her life was held Monday, Feb. 5 at Victory Harvest Church on 3953 North Flannery Road, with visitation beginning at 11 a.m. and her Celebration Service began at 2 p.m. Entombment will be at Resthaven Gardens of Memory on Jefferson Highway.

Micah leaves behind a devastated family who completely adored her: parents Steve and Jan Johnson; siblings Christian and Jenna Johnson; paternal grandparents Gerald and Mae Johnson; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and students. She is preceded in death by her maternal grandparents: Leonard Joseph Jacob and Patricia Hendry Jacob, her uncle Christopher Jay Jacob and her cousin Nicholas Jay Jacob.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Micah Johnson Memorial Fund, which will support the causes that brought joy to Micah’s heart, namely those benefiting children and animals
