Marie was born on January 6, 1922 in Frankston Texas. She was a telephone operator for Southwestern Bell, American Oil and finally, retiring from Monsanto Chemical.
She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Ervin E. "Doc" Johnson and her only son Ken Johnson.
Survivors include her daughter, Gayle Barnes, her 5 grandchildren, Michelle Trahan (Troy), Tiffany Boudreaux (David), Brent Johnson (Suezanne), Blake Johnson, Autumn Gilbertson (Colin). Her 7 great-grandchildren, Alexa Alvarez, Rayna Guidry, Colby Johnson (Destiny), Natalie Alvarez, Laiven Johnson, Alyse Johnson and Noah "Peanut" Donahoe along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Marie dedicated her whole life to serving the Lord. She was a member of Temple Baptist Church for over 65 years. She loved being a Mamaw and playing her favorite game, 42.
Marie was a very strong-willed lady, still driving well into her early 90's, never slowing down. Since she would have never given up the car keys, the family conspired and her grandson, Blake disconnected the car battery. We will forever cherish the memories.
She will be dearly missed by her family and friends. Until we meet the again.
I have such great memories of Bro. Doc and Sister Marie Johnson.She Gave me my first car a 1973 Buick 225 and when I graduated from High school she slipped a $100 bill into my hand to buy my Senior Ring. She was one of the most loving and selfless people I’ve ever know. Love and Prayers from the Taylor’s in Louisiana
