Alice W. Johnson


Alice Johnson, 83, a lifelong resident of Los Alamos, NM, went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, November 2, 2019. Her final days were spent surrounded by family and friends at her sister Irene’s home in Santa Fe, NM.  She is preceded in death by her parents Herman and Helen Martinez, and husband Merle. She is survived by her loving companion John Danielson, her precious dogs, her siblings Luis Martinez (Rose), Annie Bonnell, Cecilia Jaramillo (Fred), Irene Martinez, Olivia Montoya, Carmen Guzman (Joaquin), Lucy Guzman, Mary Campos, Michelle Romero, Paul Martinez, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family members and friends.

Alice was the matriarch of the family, the eldest of eleven children born to Herman and Helen Martinez in Santa Fe, NM.  She was deeply loved by all her family members. She leaves us with many cherished memories - her beautiful and infectious smile, her generous heart and acts of charity, her delicious meals and warm hospitality.  She was employed by Smith’s Market Place in Los Alamos for many years before retiring and met many of her friends there.

Dear Renee, I am so sorry to hear of Alice's passing. I know the two of your were so very close. So many remember her from Smith where she worked for many years, but I also remember her from the Los Alamos Inn when I worked there for a brief time. She will be missed. My prayers to you and the rest of your family.
