Theresa Ann Johnson, M.D., an internal medicine physician who specialized in emergency medicine passed away in the comfort of her home on the 18 day of January, 2013. She was 53.

Known affectionately as "Doctor J." in Lexington, Danville, and Stanford communities of Kentucky, Dr. Johnson was well loved and respected by both patients and healthcare 
professionals alike who credit her skills as a physician for saving countless lives through the course of her career.  

During the last several years, Dr. Johnson spent some of her time residing in Fort Myers Beach, Florida where she led a fairly active lifestyle despite developing 
restrictions of a connective tissue disease that ultimately would lay claim to her life.  

She received her bachelor's degree in biology from the University of Kentucky in 1982 and a postgraduate degree in liberal arts from Hollins, a private woman's 
college in Roanoke, Virginia in 1984. Dr. Johnson graduated from the American University of the Caribbean School of medicine in 1987 located on St. 
Maarten with a two-year clinical rotation at Eastbourne District General Hospital in England. She also conducted her internship and residency at the 
University of Virginia Health Sciences Center and at the Roanoke Memorial Hospital in Roanoke, Virginia.

She is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine and currently holds a medical license in Kentucky, Virginia and Utah. Dr. 
Johnson has served on the medical staff at Roanoke Memorial Hospital, Fort Logan Hospital, Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center, 
and with the Voluntary Faculty at the University Kentucky Emergency Department.

Dr. Johnson also served as Medical Director of Rural Metro in Lexington and as Medical Director of West Lincoln County Emergency Medical Service. 
She was on the Lincoln County Health Department Board of Directors and the Cooperative Care Board of Directors.

We will remember and forever cherish many things about Teresa; her intelligence, kindness, her huge heart, her generous desire to help anyone in need, her 
dedication to medicine and to her patients, her passion for sports cars and music, and her love and faithful support of family and friends.  

Dr. Johnson is survived by her parents; Jack and Hartese Hatter Johnson; a sister, Tamara D. Johnson of Stanford, and her much beloved niece

SHANKS, Hayden S.  

Shanks, Hayden S. Shanks died at his home in Rowland on the afternoon of the 14th after a

protracted illness of pneumonia, aged 33 years.

He is survived by his wife, who was a daughter of Mr. John Delaney, and three children.

Burial occurred in Buffalo cemetery after services at the late home by Mr. J. C. McClary.

A large number of friends followed the remains to Stanford's pretty little city of the dead, attesting to some extent the popularity of the deceased. Mr. Shanks was a
warm-hearted, clever man and if he had any enemies at all, they are certainly few in number. He was always in a good humor and his wit was greatly enjoyed by his legion of friends.

A pity it is that one so well liked should be taken away in the very prime of life. May the sod lie gently upon his grave.
