Rock Hill - Mrs. Caroline Kinard Johnson, 98, formerly of Walterboro, SC, passed away Friday, August 25, 2023, at the home of her daughter in Rock Hill, SC.

Born October 18, 1924, in Cottageville, SC, she was the daughter of the late James Isaac Kinard and Ina Mae Griffith Kinard. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Joe A.

“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-deserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a ride!”-Unknown. Praise to Almighty God!

A graveside service will be held at 2 pm Wednesday, August 30, 2023, at Greenlawn Memorial Gardens, Walterboro, SC, with Reverend Dr. Scott Wachter officiating.

Sincere gratitude to the Wayne T. Patrick Hospice House for all the kindness, visits, and support during this time.
