Alice Leone Johnson
Alice Leone Johnson of Allegan, Michigan, passed away on Thursday afternoon October 23, 2008 with her family by her side. She was born on January 21, 1941 to Homer and Margaret ‘Marnie’  (Knox) Carns. Alice graduated from Allegan High School class of 1959. On October 17, 1970, in Allegan, MI, she married Jurien ‘Pete’ Johnson. Alice lived in Allegan all her life. She was a stay-at-home mother who was always home when her children came home from school. Alice was an extremely talented artist who sold her artwork for over 19 years to East of the Sun in Saugatuck. She was an excellent seamstress and could do just about anything she put her heart in to. She loved making her beautiful works for her children and especially her grandchildren. And she would stay up late at night making those gifts for her grandchildren. She enjoyed her flower garden and would look forward to the weekly Sunday dinners with her husband, children and grandchildren. She was a kind, warm, loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend, simply the best. She will be deeply missed by her husband, children and grandchildren and there will be a great void. Alice and her husband Pete attended First Baptist Church in Allegan with her daughter Sarah and her family. Surviving are her husband, Jurien ‘Pete’ Johnson and her five children, Jeff (Cindy) Carns of Traverse City, Sarah (Brian) Vlietstra of Allegan, Eric (Kristy) Johnson of Dorr, Jacob Johnson of Allegan and Amanda (Dave) Carter of Allegan; 10 grandchildren, Lukas, Peyton, Emily, Samantha, Isabella, Dillyn, Marissa, Zeke, Petey and EllaMae. In her retirement years she enjoyed and loved looking after her grandchildren daily. She was preceded in death by her parents, Homer and Marnie Carns and her brother, Jim Carns. According to her wishes cremation has taken place. A memorial service will be held on October 30, 2008 at 10:30 A.M. at First Baptist Church of Allegan with Pastor Greg Carlson officiating. A luncheon will immediately follow at the church. Alice was a loving wife and mother who constantly provided comfort, joy and a bond that will never fade. The family suggest memorials be made to Spectrum Hospital for Amyloidosis Research. Arrangements were by the Winkel Funeral Home, Otsego.
