Mrs. Johnston was retired from Texas Miller Hat Factory, having worked there for 30 years.

On March 23, 1937 she married Roger Mason Johnston and had been married for 72 years at the time of his death in 2009. Marie was a very loving and caring mother, grandmother and Memaw to all her family. She had touched all our lives with her strong Christian faith. She will be missed by so many.

The family wishes to thank the staff of Heritage Oaks Retirement Village for all the love they gave Marie and the family. They offer a special thanks to her caregiver, Shirley Jones for the loving care she gave to Marie. Family First Hospice gave gentle loving care to Marie in the final days of her life and the family is very appreciative to them.
