September 9, 1932 - May 25, 2020

After a long battle with complications from multiple strokes, Marie Boone (Clegg) Johnson, 87, passed away May 25, 2020.

She resided at Autumn Care of Myrtle Grove Nursing Home. She was born September 9, 1932 in Chatham County to Jarvis Boone and Mozelle Bryan. She is survived by her daughter Donna Blackburn, and son-in-law Mark Blackburn, of New Hanover County; two grandchildren, Matt Blackburn and his spouse Mandy, Jenna Phillips and her spouse Kyle, all residing in New Hanover County; also, her brothers, Lewis Boone of Wake County and Atlas Boone of Chatham County, and the apples of her eyes, seven beautiful great grandchildren. Lyza, Sam, Colton, Lucas, Riggin, Scarlett, and Knox.

Marie was married to Hoyt Clegg, father of Donna Blackburn, for many years until his passing.

Marie had an administrative assistant associate degree, and for many years worked as a secretary for UNC Chapel Hill. She was an avid church goer and long-term member of Chatham United Methodist, Pittsboro, and Sapling Ridge UMC, Siler City. Her passion was cooking for her family, and preparing meals for members of her community that were sick or in need. There was no question, she enjoyed cutting a rug square dancing on a Saturday night, but was always singing in the choir at church on Sunday.

A private interment will be held.
