Carol Ann Johnson

Carol Ann Johnson, 73, passed away Wednesday June 13, 2018 at home with family after a battle with cancer.  She was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota on January 6th, 1945 to the parents of Del Roy and Violet Wendt. Carol was an amazing wife, mother, and friend.

Carol met her husband, Ken while working at Honeywell and married August 1, 1970.  They had three children and moved to San Diego in 1981.  Carol loved working as an EMT at Alvarado Hospital in the Emergency Room. She also managed a home owners association in Rancho San Diego.

Carol always put others before herself and had a personality and sense of humor everyone loved. She had a love for animals of all kinds, especially cats.

She is survived by her husband of over forty seven years, Kenneth Johnson, daughters Chrissy Martinez, Shelley Ehlke, and son Kenney Johnson. She has five grandchildren ( Madeline and Meagan Ehlke, Jonathan and Joseph Martinez, and Hailey Johnson), who she loved to spend time with and shower with gifts.  She had four siblings, Barbara Hann, Del Roy Wendt, Linda Wendt, and Katherine Brousseau.

We know many people loved and cared for Carol. She was greatly loved and will be missed dearly.

I am so sorry for you loss. She sounds like a lovely person. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. The Bible promises at Acts 24:15 that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous. Until then, take good care of yourselves and one another.

My dearest friend and her family🕊🌹. Your mother spoke lovingly of each of you always. She and I spoke every day for the past eleven years. I was so blessed to have a friend like your mother. We shared conversations that were special she was once in a lifetime friend who put others first and trusted everyone. Your mother touched many life’s and hearts. I continue our talks now at night or when I’m driving and see a beautiful sky. Love to all of you. Carole

To the family of Carol Johnson, I will always remember the years we worked together in the ER at Alvarado.Carol was a caring and skilled EMT. She became a friend. When I retired in 2003, she gave me a great party, one I will always remember. Carol was the manager for the HOA in which I live. She ran a tight ship but in a caring, kind way. I will miss her. God bless her family at this time. Love, Sheila

I honestly don't know where to begin. Upon receiving the news that you went home broke my heart. I've learned to find comfort that your no longer hurting. I could go on forever about all the laughs and smiles, I've been so blessed to share with you over the years. You have always been one of those people in my life I will always love and appreciate for so many reasons. You've wiped my tears and comforted me in times I felt I had no one. We could sit and talk for hours and hours. I thank God that I have so many memories with and of you to hold on to. I don't think I could ever meet a soul as beautiful and free as yours has always been. I loved that I could always trust in you and you know you definitely could trust in me. You were more than a friend .. You were family. Thank you for attending my wedding and just being you . You were truly one of a kind! I wish I could of said goodbye one last time but I know one day again we'll meet at heavens gates. I LOVE AND MISS HER DEARLY
