The Woodville Republican, Thursday, November 5, 2015 Page 3 Dr. Kimberly LaShae Bolden-Johnson The family of Dr. Kim- berly LaSh ae Bolden- Johnson would like to thank everyone who showed their love during the passing of our loved one. Dr. Bolden-Johnson was the daughter of Joh- nie Lee and Clementine Bolden of Woodville. She graduated Valedictorian from Wilkinson County High School in 1992 and continued her studies by attending Xavier Univer- sity in New Orleans and graduated Cum Laude and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biol- ogy Pre-Med and a Minor in Chemistry. In order to pursue her dream of be- coming a Medical Doctor she attended Nova South- eastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and received a Degree of Doc- tor of Osteopathic Medi- cine and she completed a three year residency in Family Medicine at West- chester General Hospital in Miami, Florida. Along her ladder of success, she received numerous other honors, and by invitation, she visited The White House her Senior Year in High School, and also did many hours of charity work. Dr. Bolden-Johnson was employed as a Fam- ily Medicine Physician at Annie L. Weaver Health Center in Pompano Beach, Florida. Her co-workers enjoyed working beside her and said she was easy to talk with and always kept a beautiful smile. Dr. Bolden-Johnson's patients were very affable of their doctor as well. Many of her patients didn't speak English well but they knew welt enough to let the receptionist know that they didn't want to see anyone but Dr. Bolden- Johnson. They also oc- casionally gave her gifts, which she often discour- aged. On her job and all = =xi~ix ,, D;oi through her residency she was well known for keep- ing accurate patient notes. She would rewrite notes if she missed work, because she liked her notes in the correct form. Although she would shy away from any attention, "I think she was mag- nificenL" said Clementine Bolden, her mother. "What she accomplished in such a short time here is such a testament to her work ethic, personality and cha- risma and will live on in the lives of her family and friends." She was married to Dr. Harvey Johnson and the couple resided in Miramar, Florida, with their three beautiful children, Khalil, Gerrod and Allissia. The children were her every- thing and until her health failed she made sure they were exposed to many dif- ferent foods, atmospheres and activities. Dr. Bolden-Johnson de- parted her life to God on August 11, 2015, at the University of Miami in Miami, Florida. Dr. Bolden-Johnson touched a lot of lives far and near. Her mother said, "Thank you for caring and sharing in our daughter's life. We love her so much Wilkinson County Calendar Of Events To add events call 601-888-4293 or email by noon Friday Local Restauranteur Opens and a part of our hearts went with her. As parents we're supposed to protect our children, but this is one time we couldn't, and now we're devastated with grief, pain and love by crying to the point of breaking down and at the same time we're still pour- ing our hearts out with so much love for her. We love her so much. As time pass- es and we grow older, the void will always be there, because you never get over the loss of a child. She'll always be in our thoughts and we will hold her close to our hearts."
