Ann Henderson Johnson Portrait and Fund
Ann Henderson Johnson shared her talent, time and heart with Columbus in many ways. She was a member of the Columbus Regional Health Foundation until her death in 2008 and was the Chair of the Together We Can Capital Campaign to build the freestanding John B. Amos Cancer Center. Ann began her professional life at AFLAC when it was a fledgling company in Columbus with only 35 employees. She retired many years later as an executive with a reputation for supporting women in the workplace. Ann’s personal pledge to the Boutique at The John B. Amos Cancer Center continued her legacy of supporting women in our community at a difficult time in their life.
Local artist Garry Pound has been commissioned to paint a portrait of Ann that will hang in the John B. Amos Cancer Center in honor of her work on behalf of the center. A Fund is also being established in her name that will help women in need suffering from cancer obtain the services of the Boutique to purchase wigs, prosthesis or other products to help them feel better about their appearance during this very difficult time.
