October 4, 1940 - March 23, 2022
Carmen Perez Johnson (81) was born October 4, 1940, in Laredo, Texas. Surrounded by her loving family, she went to be with our Lord on March 23, 2022, in San Antonio, TX. She is preceded in death by her husband, Rowan Johnson; daughter, Elisabeth Montoya; daughter-in-law, Frances Montoya; son, Alfred Montoya; and grandson, Joshua Montoya. She is survived by her children, Sandra Johnson (Jeri Rivera), Edgar Montoya, and Gerald Johnson (Mary); daughter-in-law, Cheryl Montoya; brother, Genaro Quezada (Yolanda); grandchildren, Kristy Johnson, Monica Pena (Daniel), and Elisabeth Montoya; and great-grandchildren, Ethan, Layla, and Presslee. Carmen was a beautiful, strong willed, independent woman. She retired after 26 years of service as a cafeteria cook at South San High School. After retirement, she became an avid book reader – a speed-reader at that. Danielle Steel was her favorite author. Carmen loved her plants, gardening, and spending time outdoors – she especially loved being out in her yard, on the beach, or camping. She loved all genres of music – from classic country to rancheras and mariachi, and even rock-n-roll. Carmen had a sweet tooth and always had to have candy at arms reach – even had a candy jar on her nightstand for midnight cravings. She also enjoyed the occasional drink – Miller High Life was originally her drink of choice but later she switched to Miller Lite. Disaronno w/Sprite was also another favorite. Carmen was loved by everyone who knew her. Her smile, laughter, and company will be missed immensely.
