Jowana A. Johnson-Holsey was born on May 25, 1973, in Gainesville, FL to Phyllis Ross and Leo Johnson. She grew up in a loving home & learned of Christ from her Mother and Grandmother.

Jowana was a life-long & faithful member of Jerusalem Church of God by Faith where she sang in the choir & the praise & worship ensemble; developing a never ending love for God under the pastorate of the late Elders N.R. Burney, Mark C. Welch, Daniel E. Gainey and Superintendent Elder Duane E. Gainey, to whom she was under the leadership of until her demise.
