Dolores H. (Branche) James Johnson graduated from Housatonic Valley Regional High School (HVRHS), Falls Village, Connecticut in 1952. Nominated by Sis. Rhonda Folks, Dolores has been chosen as one of ten individuals to be inducted into the Housatonic Valley Regional High School Alumni Wall of Honor during a ceremony scheduled for Sunday, November 3, 2019 at the school. , She will become the first African American to receive this honor.


Dolores has made a difference in the lives of others by living her life in service to others, overcoming obstacles for the benefit of others. It was because of her adoration and care of children that she worked in the Northwest Connecticut School System for 28 years. As a global missionary, she has been exemplary as a mission team member and leader. She has great outreach ministry skills and has utilized them as a team member on several New Covenant mission trips to Haiti. It was through a mission trip to God’s Littlest Angels orphanage in Haiti that she became a part of the “Grandmas & Grandpa Rockers”. Through this ministry, they rocked babies, hummed, sang songs of God’s love, and prayed for their well-being and caregivers. She gained recognition as the first African American from America to serve at the orphanage. Her determination, persuasiveness and selflessness made an impact not only on the babies and caregivers at the orphanage, but also on the lives of the mission team members who followed her to Haiti. They affectionately called Grandma Dee.


Even though her health concerns may have prevented her from further Haiti trips, she maintains her persuasive encouragement and selflessness. In 2017, she organized a group of women called “Sisters on the Move” that meet monthly to plan fundraisers to support the Boys and Girls Club of Marion County. Under her leadership, two fashion events have been sponsored and nearly $5,000 has been raised to the Boys and Girls Club activities.


Dolores has made a difference in the lives of others by living her life in service to others. Her life reveals evidence of social and civic responsibility.


She is married to Dea. William Johnson, mother to Michael and Stanley, and doting grandmother to Adrian. We salute and congratulate Sis. Dolores Johnson on this great honor!
