Bodine Johnson

August 13, 1935 — January 23, 2024



        It is with very heavy hearts that we advise of the passing of our sister, aunt, great aunt and friend, Bodine Johnson, a lifelong resident of Ector and Upton Counties. 

        Bodine was born August 13, 1935, in Iraan, Texas, to Floyd C. and Lorean Cook Moore, and passed away at Crane, Texas on January 23, 2024 at the age of 88 years. 

        Her young life was spent in McCamey, Texas, where her father was employed in the oil field.  Upon graduation from McCamey High School, she entered Sul Ross University.  Bodine graduated from Sul Ross on August 21, 1957 with a Bachelor of Science degree.  On March 8, 1956, while a student at Sul Ross, Bodine was inducted into the Kappa Delta Pi, a National Honor Society. After graduating from Sul Ross, Bodine received a teaching certificate and secured a teaching position in San Angelo, Texas. 

        It was while she was living and teaching in San Angelo that she met, Bob (”Bobby”) Johnson, the love her life, and they were married at McCamey, Texas, on her birthday, August 13, 1960.   The newlywed couple then moved to Odessa, Texas, where they made their home for many years.  Bodine taught Theatre Drama at Permian High School for many years, and to this day, there are many students who have stayed in touch with “Mrs. Johnson” as she was one of those special teachers who made such an indelible impact and lasting influence on her students’ lives.  She was the inveterate teacher and loved for her students to absorb what she was teaching and leading them to perform.  When directing whatever production was being put on that that time, she commanded respect and attention from her students and was a force to be reconned with.  It will be a long time before the likes of Mrs. Johnson passes our way again 

        Bodine was predeceased by her husband, Bob Johnson, and by her parents, Floyd C. and Lorean Cook Moore, as well as her two siblings, Michael Moore and Patrick Moore.  She is survived by her brother, James Bodie Moore, of Fort Stockton and Crane, Texas, as well as many nieces and nephews, and great nieces and great nephews. 

        Funeral services for Bodine will be graveside services only on Friday, January 26, 2024, at 1 PM. at Resthaven Cemetery, McCamey, Texas.
