Collette Allen Johnson was born on November 15, 1959 to the late Harold Allen and Annie Ruth Aiken.

Collette left college early to pursue a career in cosmetology. She worked as a makeup artist for Fashion Fair and Mary Kay cosmetic companies.

In 2016 Collette and Antoine moved to Newport News, Virginia.

Collette was artistic and creative. She loved to write poems to encourage people and to remember the life they lived. She also had a passion for photography. She was lovingly referred to as “Mahogany” (reference to Diana Ross in the movie Mahogany) because of her flair for fashion. She had an easy going personality with a non-judgment characteristic.  She was known for being the life of the party which matched her living her life out loud persona. Collette made the most important decision of her life when she accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior in 2011. While in Newport News, Virginia, she joined Greater Victory Church and became an active member until her passing.
