Johnston Judy2

Judith Ann Johnston, age 79, of Alpine, NY and formerly from Lamar, MO, passed away June 16, 2019, at her home.
Judy was born May 26, 1940 in El Dorado, KS to Roger Phil and Blanche Alleen (Morgan) Mollohan. Judy was a Licensed Practical Nurse and worked many years at the Nevada State Hospital with mentally and developmentally disabled individuals.  She later served as a Parish Nurse for the Lamar United Methodist Church.
