On December 23, 1953 the world received a special gift in the person of Annetta Hampton, born to John and Rejetta Hampton in Amory, Mississippi. Annetta was the third of four children of Rejetta’s children.
Annetta had a great personality and was the life of the party. Wherever she went she spread laughter through her comedic sense of humor and genuine personality. Annetta operated in the gift of helps and used this gift by opening her home to families facing homelessness.
She has helped people in rearing their children, decorating their homes and was an advocate to those overcoming addiction. Over the course of her lifetime, several companies were blessed by her hard work and dedication as she served as a residential aid, home health aide and retired from Minimiyer Residential Services as a House Manager.
Annetta grew up in the Churches of God in Christ under the guidance of Mother Sara Thompson and became a founding member of the Thompson Memorial COGIC, under the leadership of the late Pastor Herman (Carolyn) Templeton Jr. Annetta served the ministry as a praise and worship leader, lead choir vocalist, Asst. Coordinator for the War on Drugs and as an intercessor on the Intercessory Prayer Team. After the transition of her pastor and her relocation to Columbus, Ohio she became a member of Joshua Generation Pastor Femi (Reni) Oyewusi. In 2016 she met and married Minister Gregory Johnson and relocated back to her home town in Akron, Ohio, transferring her membership to Kingdom Nation Assembly of Ministries under the leadership of Pastor Katrise Bolden-Vinson. Annetta served the ministry as the Chief Intercessor. Due to challenges in her health, in 2017 Annetta relocated back to Columbus, Ohio and continued to serve the ministry until her health prevented her from doing so.
Annetta loved to pray and when she prayed it felt as if you could feel the heavens moving. Where she penned the phrase…. “I feel Jesus,” her voice would thunder and she would turn red and speak in diverse tongues until her face was wet with tears. Everyone who witnessed this knew she’d reached the throne room of heaven.
Annetta never met a stranger and had a zeal for life that was contagious. During her residency at the Crown Point Care Facility in Columbus, Ohio, she was nominated as the “Resident Liaison” where she served until her transfer to another facility.
She loved and adored her family both near and far, but her pride and joy were her children and grandchildren, of whom she was very proud. Annetta was a “Warrior “who gained victory in her final battle on December 31, 2020 at the age of 68. Annetta was preceded in death by: her parents John and Rejetta Hampton, Sister Faynetta Farr, Brother John L. Hampton. Annetta leaves to carry the torch of her legacy, her loving daughter and caregiver Angel Mitchell. Sons: Wesley (Johari) Mitchell, James Mitchell. Siblings: Travis of Chicago, Illinois. Jeanetta Stephenson of Akron, Ohio. John, Carolyn, Debbie, Debra, Felicia, Kevin, Ken, and Amie Hampton all of Vernon, Alabama. Best friend: Minister Diane Brice, Lifetime friend: Claudia Boyd, Mary Linear, Toka (Michael) Eagleton. Annetta leaves to cherish her memory a host of grandchildren, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
