Nicole Cierra Johnson, 26, Lexington Park

Nicole Cierra Johnson, 26, of Lexington Park died Sept. 16, 2012, at MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital, Leonardtown.

Born Sept. 8, 1986, she was the daughter of Myra Johnson and Richard Nolan Jr.

She graduated from Great Mills High School in 2006. She was employed with Twilight Camp in Lexington Park for three years and Southern Maryland Boys and Girls Club for seven years. This year, she was offered a position with the St. Mary’s County Board of Education as the dance team coordinator for Great Mills High School. She was pursuing a degree in criminal justice at the College of Southern Maryland. She was proud and happy when she took her first test in criminal justice and received an A, and her family was just as proud of her. She was also the founder and leader of the “JB HUNNIEZ.”

She loved listening to music and singing her favorite song, “Jesus Loves Me,” watching her favorite TV show, “Twilight,” and dancing, which was something that inspired her, especially with leading her step team. She generated enthusiasm and excitement in young people. She encouraged her brother, Dominique, to continue to pursue his musical abilities and talents and was excited about working on his new video.

She was preceded in death by her grandfathers, John Berry Sr., Ernest Toney Sr. and Richard Nolan Sr.; and uncle, Leonard Miles Jr.

In addition to her parents, she is survived by her daughter, Za’Briana Atlantius-Unique Johnson; stepfather of 26 years, Mervin S.
