Marie C. Johnson, 89, of Billings, passed away peacefully on Feb. 7, after complications from a long, difficult battle with Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s stole her mind, but her inner soul remained pure and strong until the end. Her passing is a blessing, but the vital, intelligent, and loving woman she was before this horrible disease interfered is what we remember and miss. Marie is survived by her children, Kim (Vic) Halverson of Billings and Bryce (Laura) Johnson of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; her four grandchildren, Quinn and Cole Halverson and Alyx and Evin Johnson; her younger brother, James (Kathy) Jansen of Cary, North Carolina; and numerous nieces and nephews around the country. Her husband, Merlyn, and three siblings preceded her in death.
