Johnnie LeCroy Lassiter the Historian
this video was taken October 27, 2010. The lady in the pink or reddish plaid is Johnnie LeCroy Lassiter. She died Monday and the funeral is today.
This video was made when my mother-in-law, the lady in the gray, donated from her "archives" newpaper clippings, books, newsletters, and others items of interest to the East Cobb Methodsit Church/Campground Methodist Church's museum which is housed in the little school house on the church's campgrounds property. My mother-in-law went to school there as a girl. The younger lady is Johnnie's daughter-in-law Cheryl Smith Lassiter. If you are an OM may know of Sheryl's father or brothers, they owned Smith Brothers Service Station on Fairground and Clay Streets. You also may have known Johnnie's husband, he was Doctor Lassiter, owner of Lassiter Drug Store on the corner of Fairground and Roswell Streets. And her father was Judge LeCroy, probate judge.
It was said that when Judge LeCroy died a lot of local oral history also died. And I think the same is for Johnnie: A lot of oral history was lost this past Monday.
