Grace Johns
1934 ~ 2013

PEBBLE BEACH – Grace Johns passed away on June 11 at the age of 78, due to complications from Alzheimer's disease.
Grace was born in 1934 in the small town of Calipatria, CA. After high school, she headed off to the big city where she proudly attended the University of California at Los Angeles. Upon graduating UCLA, she landed an excellent job at IBM. Shortly thereafter in 1958, she met her soon-to-be husband and love of her life, Al Johns. Al was a cartoonist and together they formed the perfect team; he drew the cartoons and she ran the business side.
In 1967, they moved from the Los Angeles area to Pebble Beach to raise a family. Grace, a lifelong lover of antiques, was quite a fixture on the Peninsula and could often be found chatting with customers at her space at the Cannery Row Antique Mall.
Grace is survived by her husband of 54 years, Al, as well as two children and two grandchildren. There will be no memorial services, however condolences may be left by signing her guest book page at
