Lourice Williams Johnson was born October 18, 1932 in Austin, Texas to Arnold and Novella Williams. She was the third of five children.

She attended Austin Public Schools, graduating from the original Anderson High School.

She accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at David Chapel Missionary Baptist Church. She later united with Zion Hill Baptist Church where she was very active in church.

Lourice married her child-hood friend, William Pearson early in life. They were happily married for eleven years before his death. No children were born to this union. Years later, Lourice united in holy matrimony to Minister Alfred N. Johnson and to this union, one son was born, James Johnson. She became very active in the churches her husband pastored serving as musician. He pastored in Palestine, Texas for several years before he was called as pastor of New Hope Baptist Church in Seguin, Texas. She served as musician for many years there before her husband passed. She remained a loyal member of New Hope Baptist Church until her death for a total of forty three years.

Lourice departed this life on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 at Riverside Rehab Center in Austin, Texas.

She was a kind-hearted, friendly and giving person. She loved her son, husband and family. She looked forward to her son James, taking her out to lunch once a week. She enjoyed spending time with him. He continued that ritual after she entered the rehab several times. She was loved by family, many friends, neighbors and church members. She loved religious music and hats. She will be missed by all that knew her.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Arnold and Novella Williams; and husband, Minister Alfred Johnson.

Lourice leaves to cherish her memory her son, James Arnold Johnson; two sisters, Corine Harris and Jewel Andrews (Wilson) of Austin; two brothers, Claude Williams (Vera) of Austin and Otis Williams (Marjorie) of Houston, TX; two special cousins, Earman Sneed (Willa) of Austin and Patricia Costello (Michael) of Rio Vista, CA; nieces, nephews, other family and friends.
