Mrs. Johnston was a member of the Apostolic Tabernacle of Jesus Christ. Affectionately known as “Nana” to her family and friends, she always had a smile and warm words for anyone she met. Alice was a homemaker and had worked at Martin’s Department Store, Parsons and Deanne’s Jewelry Store.

Mrs. Johnston always had a green thumb when it came to raising plants and especially enjoyed her African violets and her many colorful roses. She also raised a vegetable garden and was known for having beautiful tomatoes. She always canned and preserved the many fruits of her garden. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed preparing delicious meals for her family that she treasured.

She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, aunt and cherished friend, who will be sadly missed by all.

Funeral services will be conducted 2 p.m., October 7, 2018, with Pastor Arnold Ison officiating. Burial will be beside her beloved husband in Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens.

Pallbearers will be her loving grandsons: Dwayne Johnston, Rick Johnston, Doug Mays, Pat Mays, Jeff Mays, Derek Stone and Wesley Stone.
