She was born on February 18, 1956, in Heidelberg, Germany, to Sgt. John and Francis Williams.

Her education was finished, and she graduated in Germany. Johanna then came to the United States where she attended flight attendant school and college for nursing in which she attained a degree. Then she went on to travel the world and lived in many fantastic places. She landed in Gulfport, MS where she married Robbie Pierce and they had two children; a son, Rory Pierce and a daughter, Delaney Pierce. She opened her first business on Highway 49 called Basket Cases, where she made and repaired wicker furniture along with various other arts and crafts. Years later she and the children moved to North Texas where she re-opened Basket Cases and was a foreman for National Installers. They lived there for many years, where she met and married Bart Brower. After retiring from National Installers, she and Bart moved back to Mississippi and re-reopened Basket Cases on Highway 53.
