Zelmaree Underwood Johnson

Zelmaree Underwood Johnson was born June 8, 1921 near Hampton, Arkansas, as the fifth child of Frances Tenala Pearce Underwood and Christopher Columbus Morrison Underwood. She was eight months old when, legend has it, her father was ambushed on his way into town to testify in a criminal trial. It was a terrible loss, forcing her mother to become the family’s sole provider. Many hated days were spent picking cotton. She had to quit school after the fifth grade because then there were no school buses for the rural children and she had to contribute to the family income. Zelma loved reading and got the education she missed. She was given a used Bible at an early age, and Christianity became her touchstone for life. In bad times in her adult life, her faith was the source of her strength. When she wanted to enroll in a college-level Bible class and was told she would need a high school diploma to enroll, she lost no time in getting a GED.
