June 14, 2022, 22, Princeton –
Faith Lynn Johnson was born in Johnston County, NC on July 1, 1999 and died June 14, 2022. She was blessed with many talents and showcased them whenever possible. She started dancing at a very young age at the Clayton School of Dance under the direction of Miss Ann Austin, whom she adored. She traded in her ballet slippers and tap shoes for pom-poms and cheer shoes upon entering middle school. Faith cheered for Wake Christian Academy and Corinth Holders High School, in addition to competing in NC and SC for Premier Athletics Clayton and Cheer Extreme Raleigh. She loved the athleticism of competition cheer and thoroughly enjoyed working side by side with her amazing cheer friends and coaches. Her goal was to open her own cheer and dance gym after college.
Faith loved her youth group and leaders at Quest Fellowship Church. Pastor Ray and Lorie were always there to lend an ear and provide advice and loved Faith unconditionally. Faith made many lifelong friends in her youth group and enjoyed bringing new friends into the fold. She looked forward to summer camp in Michigan each year and really thrived when surrounded by other believers. Faith traveled to Budapest and Ukraine on mission trips with her father and enjoyed serving the children there.
Faith fiercely loved her Grandma Joan and Papa Greg. They were her biggest supporters and prayer warriors and were the foundation builders of her walk with Christ. Faith sang at many worship events at her grandparents’ church and thoroughly loved being on stage worshipping the Lord.
Faith was adopted by Stacy and Carol when she was five years old. She was beautiful, sassy and full of life with an infectious smile and laugh. She was instantly loved by her new family and proudly claimed her role as “big sister” to Jessica and Haley. In 2014, Faith played an integral part in the adoption of three older brothers from Ukraine: Spartak, Sebastian and Sasha. Faith graduated from Corinth Holders High School in 2017, along with two of her brothers. She attended Wake Technical College in Raleigh and lived in several NC towns and cities after high school.
