Johnson, Marie J. - Bristol  
Marie J. Johnson Marie J. Johnson, 96, formerly of Bristol, and long-time resident of Santa Monica, California, passed away on September 7, 2015, at the Atherton Baptist Home in Alhambra, CA. She is preceded in death by her parents, Gilford and Mary (Mamie Tripp) Johnson; her 4 sisters, Violet Johnson, Elodie Bell, Vivian Madden, and Helen Kimbleton; her 2 brothers, Howard and Donald; and 1 nephew, Greg Johnson. Survivors include two sisters-in-law, Marcella Johnson and Pauline Johnson; 18 nieces and nephews; and a number of great and great, great nieces and nephews. Marie grew up on Bertram Farm in Bristol and graduated from Yorkville High School and Copley Hospital School of Nursing. She spent most of her career doing private duty nursing in California. She also served as camp nurse for 18 years at Thousand Pines Baptist Camp in California. She was beloved by the campers and after she retired at the age of 80 the Camp Health Center was renamed after her. She cared for her mother, father, and several sisters in their final illnesses and was a loving "mother" to her nieces and nephews after their losses. Marie was devoted to her Trinity Baptist Church and sang in the choir until 4 years ago. She gave of her time to many charitable causes and assisted in dental missions to Central America. She tirelessly collected recyclables to get money for postage to send clothing she collected to needy Native Americans in the Southwest. She knitted over 500 warm winter caps to send them. She also made over 500 bibs for the residents of Atherton Baptist Home. She served on many boards in various capacities and received many awards and honors for her charitable work. She was a fearless, independent, generous spirit who loved waterfalls, covered bridges, snapping photos, finding a hidden cache of aluminum cans, and arranging and planning the annual family reunion in Yorkville. No one was a stranger to her. She was a friend to all. She was one-of-a-kind. We will not soon see the likes of her again. A graveside Memorial Service is planned for October 10, 2015, at 11:00 a.m. at Elmwood Cemetery in Yorkville before the annual family reunion at Harris Woods Forest Preserve on Route 71.
