Beni Johnson has died at the age of 67 according to her husband, Pastor Bill Johnson.
The Johnson's church, Bethel Church in Redding, California, had announced on Wednesday evening that Beni had quit chemotherapy treatments and moved into hospice care to manage her pain.
In a post on Bill's public Facebook page, he shared a picture of Beni simply saying "Healthy and Free," just after midnight Pacific time. The post states that Beni died on July 13, 2022.
Beni was originally diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2018. She had tumours removed from a breast at the time, and told media outlets she was "shocked" by the diagnosis.
Her battle with cancer intensified in February 2022 and the church had asked people to pray. "Hundreds of thousands" of people had joined in praying for her the church wrote yesterday in another call to prayer, and the congregation was hosting a prayer meeting when she passed away.
The Johnsons arrived at Bethel Church in 1996
More to come.
