Alice Johnson

Alice Marie Johnson, of Watertown, was called to her heavenly home on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, while living at Highland House Assisted Living, Watertown.

Alice was born on Jan. 26, 1918, in Elkhorn, the daughter of the late George A. Driscoll and Grace J. (White) Driscoll. On Feb. 26, 1935, she married Carl A. Johnson at St. Jude Catholic Church, Beloit. Carl and Alice had three children. She was a former member of the Christian Mothers of St. Patrick's Catholic Church, Janesville. Alice enjoyed being a resident of Highland House where she enjoyed playing bingo and "500" with other residents. She lived a simple life, not seeking earthly possessions. When life's challenges arose, she sought guidance through prayer.

Alice is survived by her three children, Judith Ann (Robert) Gentry of New Orleans, Dennis (Deb) Johnson of Watertown and Mary Ann (Reg) Wagner of Sheridan, Illinois; six grandchildren, Sister Janeen Bradke, Sarah (Larry) Anderson, David (Ana) Bradke, Dean (Amy) Johnson, Deanne (James) Schuck and Jennifer (David) Burke; six great-grandchildren, Aurora, Amanda, Rachel, Jeffery, Daisy and Aaron; and sister Carol Udell of Janesville. She is also survived by a number of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Carl; her brothers Wally, Donald, Eugene and George Albert in infancy; and sisters, Dorothy and Charlotte.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff of Highland House for their home-cooked meals, kindness and compassionate care.
