Obituary

Linda Louise Johnson (Hutchison), age 78, passed away peacefully in her sleep after her battle with Alzheimer's on Wednesday, October 2, 2019 in San Antonio, TX. She was born in San Antonio, TX on August 31, 1941 to Leroy and Louise Hutchison. Growing up, Linda, experienced living in many different locales, including Japan, due to her father's career in the US Air Force. Upon graduation from high school, Linda attended the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque where she earned a B.A. degree in English and Home Economics in 1963. While attending UNM, Linda met the love of her life, Virgil "Woody" Johnson, they were married on August 24, 1962. For the next twenty-two years, Woody's career in the Air Force took them to many different locales, including another tour of Japan for Linda. Through each of the family moves, Linda never failed to make the move seamless for her family, ensuring that their new home was unpacked, organized, and ready for the next adventure.
