Judge Johnson To Retire
Johnson initially joined the Needmore’s judge’s office as a secretary, a position she held for 10 years. Following the retirement of Judge Pierce Gordon, Johnson was appointed to fulfill the remaining 1-1/2 years of Gordon’s term of office and went on to enjoy 30 years as judge.
In addition to her duties as judge, Johnson has also served as a member of Fulton County Medical Center Board of Directors, Franklin / Fulton Mental Health / Mental Retardation Advisory Board, the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority and the Special Court Judges Association of Pennsylvania. She also attends the Warfordsburg Presbyterian Church where she is a church elder.
Slated to retire at the conclusion of 2011, Johnson hopes to travel and spend additional time with her family.
“I have enjoyed my time in office and thank my staff for all of their help and loyalty,” concluded Johnson.
