In 1941 Johnny moved with his parents and family to Luton, IA, where he farmed with them.

He was then baptized in the Blue River south of Henderson and joined the Evangelical Mennonite Brethren Church in the summer of 1935.

Johnny married Anna (Isaac) on August 12, 1945. After farming near Luton, Iowa for one year, they moved to Omaha, NE where Johnny attended and graduated from Grace Bible Institute. Johnny & Anna raised 4 children: Lee, Cherry, Steve, and Loren.

In April of 1951, Johnny & Anna and their first two children sailed to Japan where they entered into missionary service where their two other children were born. Johnny & Anna served in a blessed, fruitful ministry for 38 years. They retired and moved to Lincoln, NE in 1989, celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary in 2005.

They moved to Skyline Retirement Community in Omaha in 2006, where Anna went to be with Lord in 2007. Johnny continued living in the various care levels at Skyline until his death January 11, 2018.

3/20/1957 – 1/5/2018

David Jackson “Big Daddy” was an amazing father, brother, Paw Paw and friend. He touched many lives through the years. Born in Omaha, Nebraska to Mattie Mae Taylor and Tony Vernal Herbert, he was the second oldest son. He shared a great bond with his siblings and family. Very close to his maternal grandmother Fannie Mae Fulton, by age 18 he was set to join the United States Army. A tough decision, but ultimately the best decision. David would return from duty and watch both his mother and grandmother light up with both relief and joy at the sight of him. He comes from a very close family where they were all more like siblings than any other title given. His love was immeasurable. While serving 22 years in the United States Army, upon retirement David chose to settle and become a resident in Monroe, Louisiana where he would reside until his passing. He was an active member and Deacon of Seigle Community Baptist Church and Associated member/Deacon of Philadelphia Word Church, both of Louisiana. David loved his church family and they loved him as well, he spoke highly and enjoyed being under the leadership of Rev. William L. Cann. After retiring and receiving his Bachelor’s degree from University of Louisiana at Monroe , he became employed as Specialist David Jackson for the Louisiana State Probation and Parole Office. He was a member of the Magnolia Peace Officers as well as the Louisiana Probation and Parole Association where he was awarded the State Officer of the Year twice. David was a proud man, thorough and sometimes tough. But although he was  tough, he was a gentle giant. While stern, he had a smile that would light the room, while stubborn… he held a heart bigger than life.

David is preceded in death by his parents, Mattie Mae Taylor and Tony Vernal Herbert; (Brother) Vernal Lee Glenn and grandmother Fannie Mae Fulton. All of Omaha, Nebraska.
