Susie Katherine Johnson, 65, of Bardstown, returned to the Lord on Monday, September 2, 2019 at Hardin Memorial Hospital.  She was a native of Bardstown, a retired employee of Jim Beam Distillery where she worked for 39 years, and a member of Second Baptist Church, Fairfield.  Susie is survived by one son, Thomas Johnson; her mother, Eleanor Johnson; five siblings, Christine Crowe, Michael, Paul, Peggy, and Charlene Johnson; along with three grandchildren, Destiny White, Diamond and La'Tasia Johnson; and one great grandson, Anton Smithers, Jr.  Funeral services will be held 3 p.m. Wednesday at McFarland-Troutman-Proffitt Funeral Home with burial to follow in Mt. Washington Cemetery.  Friends may visit from 12 p.m. until time of service on Wednesday.


Susie was always the smile of the Jim Beam Plant. Always happy, thoughtful and warm loving. She is missed each day. I know she is now happy with her creator. God Bless each one of you!
Susie always had that smile anytime I saw her around the Emmaus Community in E-town. Susie served on the board of directors for the E-town Emmaus community and she will be missed by many of us that were extended family through our relationship of knowing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Even though there will be those of family and friends left behind that will truly miss Susie I am sure that she would tell each of us, "HOW GREAT LIFE IS AS SHE RUNS TO MEET THOSE GONE ON TO GLORY AHEAD OF HER." To the family and friends of Susie Johnson we will never forget that smile and we will never forget to pray for you all. So on behalf of the entire Emmaus Community May GOD always comfort you and Bless you. Ernie Bagley
