Loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother Marie Belle Johnson passed at home in her sleep on July 30, 2016.
Marie was born Nov. 18, 1925 in Viscount Municipality, Saskatchewan. She first visited the US in 1947, and immigrated to California in 1952. She moved to San Diego in 1963, and became a naturalized citizen in 1965.
Marie worked in real estate in Coronado and the South Bay for 30 years. Prior to that, she worked as a pharmacy clerk for 10 years.
Marie had an intense love for family. She enjoyed socializing with people and had the ability to turn strangers into dear friends in a matter of minutes.
Traveling was a passion, and she had recently visited Hawaii and London. She also loved gardening, and has a wide variety of flowers and fruit trees in her yard.
Marie is survived by her husband, Glen, and her sons, Greg and Dennis; her seven grandchildren, Sarah, Nathan, Anna, Aaron, Naomi, Rosemary, and Paul; and her seven great grandchildren, Angela, Thomas, Dominic, Rebekah, Olivia, Elizabeth, and Johanna.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested a donation to a Veteran’s benefit fund of choice.
