Senior Living Resident Spotlight – Sibyl Johnson

Our friend, Mrs. Sibyl Johnson was born and raised in Fluvanna County, VA with her two brothers and three sisters. Living in a rural it was no surprise that Sibyl found the love of her life early on. While attending Fluvanna County High School Sibyl was set up on a blind date at a ball game where she met her future husband Gordon “GI” Johnson who had been serving overseas in Germany for the United States Army.

Shortly after she graduated high school Sibyl and “GI” got married and started a family. The couple had 2 sons, Mike and Ricky and 5 years later were blessed with a daughter whom they named Teresa. Over the years their family expanded, and the couple had 9 grandchildren along with 14 great-grandchildren and still counting.

Sibyl worked for what is now known as Bank of America for roughly 25 years before retiring. After leaving the service, GI later went to work in law enforcement as a Virginia State Trooper and later as Sheriff of Orange County. Sibyl has been a long-time member of Orange Baptist Church as well as the Dolly Madison Garden Club. Along with her wonderful marriage of over 60 years to GI, Sibyl is most proud of raising her 3 children and ensuring each of them graduated college.
