Born February 22, 1929, she was a daughter of the late Franklin Clarence Johnson and Alice Yeager Johnson.
Alice graduated from Anacostia High School in Washington, D.C. in June 1946. In a time when few women were seeking careers, she noted in her yearbook her desire to be a professional accountant. In pursuit of that goal, she graduated from the McCann School of Business, Hazelton, PA in June 1947 and shortly afterwards was hired by C&P Telephone Company as an auditor. She retired after a 37-year career as a manager of the Revenue and Auditing division for C&P Telephone Company. She was a proud member of the Telephone Pioneers of America and served as treasurer of the Myrtle Beach chapter for over 20 years.
Alice's love of golf led her to many vacations in Myrtle Beach. Upon retirement, she moved to Myrtle Beach fulfilling her love of the sport. She was a member of Myrtlewood Golf Club, where she was part of the Ladies Golf Association and served as treasurer for many years.
Alice had an adventurous spirit and passion for traveling the world. She visited all corners of the globe: riding an elephant in Thailand, a rickshaw in China, riverboats in Europe, and visited castles and monuments in Scotland, England, Ireland, Germany, Russia and Scandinavia. As an octogenarian she tried snowmobiling and ice fishing in northern Minnesota and loved it!
She was a member of Socastee United Methodist Church, where she served on numerous mission trips to the Caribbean Islands, played hand bells, and volunteered with Meals on Wheels and Street Reach.
Alice's great sense of humor and compassion will be missed by her family and friends.
She was the dearly beloved aunt of Douglas Johnson (Jean) and Nancy Magoon (Bill). She greatly loved her 8 great nieces and nephews and their spouses; her memory will live on in the hearts of her 18 great great nieces and nephews, for whom she crafted exquisite cross stitch Christmas stockings.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 PM, Saturday, November 4, 2017, at Socastee United Methodist Church.
