Kimberly Johnson Wooden

Great Granddaughter of Mrs. Judith Carter Horton

Kimberly Johnson Wooden (Kim) age 63 is the Great-Granddaughter of Mrs. Judith Carter Horton. My family are native Floridians from Leesburg, Florida. My brother Gordon and his wife Beverly moved back to the Leesburg area to serve as caregivers for our parents (Leslie and Betty Johnson). My husband Wayne and I currently live in Houston, Texas. We have one son, Stephen (34) who keeps us smiling as he fulfills his dream as a 737 Captain with United Airlines. Stephen's wife is a commercial pilot too! The sometimes random meet ups around the globe have been the most memorable family highlights.

I am a graduate of the University of South Florida (Tampa) with a BA degree in Marketing/Business Adm. My workplace assignments have placed me as a Senior Leader in the Financial Industry-Banking for some of the country's top institutions.  Wayne and I are active members at our church in the Worship Ministry and Deacon ministries. I also serve our local community as a member of a community service organization that places emphasis on cultural and educational awareness for our youth. In addition, I love to cook, watch cooking shows on YouTube, hosting friends and family gatherings, traveling to beach destinations, shopping(Amazon) and watching HGTV.

On behalf of my Dad ,John "Leslie" Johnson, (90) (Mrs. Horton's Grandson) and my extended family, we are honored to have my Dad's Grandmother and our Great-grandmother  rich legacy recognized by the 89'ers in Guthrie, Oklahoma. When we look at her perseverance, determination to make a difference in her life and that of others, it's overwhelming to see  her strong DNA genes that have been passed down through the generations. Her legacy continues today with our strong family values rooted in education, community service. The number of educators, lawyers, pilots, bankers, medical professionals not to mention librarians in our family is amazing.  

One fun fact... My first job while in high school was working in the Leesburg public library shelving books.:)  No doubt.. Grandmother Horton would be beaming with pride if she could see what she "birthed".
