Kacy Lee Johnson, 29, of Bardstown, died unexpectedly Saturday June 13, 2020 at Norton Brownsboro Hospital following a very brief illness. She was born January 13, 1991 to Brenda McCubbins Johnson and the late George Johnson. Kacy was employed as a registered nurse in the trauma intensive care unit at U of L Hospital, a former employee of Nelson County EMS and Flaget Hospital Emergency Department, a graduate of the University of Louisville School of Nursing and was only two months away from completing the Doctorate of Nursing Practice degree at the University of Louisville. That degree is being awarded to her posthumously in recognition of the many hours of study and clinical practice she had already put into it.
Kacy was a true professional providing wonderful care to her patients from her days as an EMT and all the way through her nursing career. She precepted many of her co-workers over the years as they began their nursing careers. Kacy touched so many lives during her life in the medical world and beyond. She also had an immense love of animals including her precious cats, horse, donkey, and many dogs over the years. She always had a soft spot in her heart for shelter animals and believed in adopting them. Kacy also enjoyed horseback riding, traveling, swimming, and swim team competitions, and playing her favorite game of cards, Rock. She loved having political discussions to share her conservative point of view. And she enjoyed nothing more than spending time with family and friends.
In addition to her Daddy, George Johnson, Kacy was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Carl and Pauline Johnson; and maternal grandfather, Merrill McCubbins.
She is survived by her loving husband, Bradley Hogg; mother, Brenda McCubbins Johnson both of Bardstown; two sisters, Robin (Paul) Garcia of Louisville, and Karla Johnston; three nephews, Brian Garcia of Dallas, Texas, Gabriel Ballard of Loretto, and Charlieann Lindeman of Louisville; maternal grandmother, Rita McCubbins of Bardstown; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
