Johnnie was born on May 22, 1950 in Goldthwaite, TX and was a long time resident of Bosque County.

Johnnie was preceded in death by her parents, John and Stevie Phillips; two brothers, Steven Phillips and Roy McCoy; three sisters, Dorothy Mason, Louise Kaleva, Lorena Phillips; and her son-in-law, Zeke Alvarez.
Johnnie is survived by her devoted husband of 27 years, Dennis Locklear; her children and their spouses whom she considered her own, Jeanett and Kurt Jenson, Lorena and Michael Meyers, Kaye and Thomas Corson, Shellie and James Ryals, Stevie Alvarez and David Landry and Jack; brothers, David Phillips, Jesse McCoy; and numerous grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
