Amy Marriott Johns, 91, passed away on Monday, February 12, 2018.

Amy was born on September 18, 1926, in Boulder, Colorado, to Fredrick and Katherine Marriott. Because the family traveled throughout her growing years, Amy attended various schools throughout her life, ending up in college at The University of Colorado, where she was a member of Alpha Phi. It is also where she met James Johns. They were married on December 23, 1947.

When Jimmie finished his degree in 1948, he and Amy moved to Roswell, where she was a homemaker and raised three children. She and the family enjoyed many activities together, including tennis, at which she excelled; water skiing, snow skiing and traveling.

Amy was very active in and a long-time member of many Roswell organizations through the years: Daughters of the American Revolution, Shakespeare Club, the Roswell Symphony Guild, Sweet Adelines, and the Roswell Reading Club. She was Past President of the Roswell P.E.O. and a member for 68 years. She was also a member of the Alto P.E.O. group. Music was her life. She played the violin, sang with the Sweet Adelines, and performed in the Roswell Frolics.

Amy was an active, vital, and long-time member of the First United Methodist Church, where she sang in the Chancel Choir for at least 60 years, played in the Kaler hand bell choir, served on the Worship Committee, and supported the church in many other ways. She also supported the Salvation Army, the Roswell Humane Society, the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art and many other worthy organizations.

Amy is survived by her two sons, Kirk and wife Elizabeth; James and girlfriend Wendy Stephens; half-brother Fredrick Marriott; cousins Jimmy and Sue Johns of Carlsbad and their family; Leslie and Donald Dongan of Artesia and their family; countless friends; and her beloved dog Rascal.

She was preceded in death by her oldest son, Chris, and husband, James. Her family and friends know she is singing in the Heavenly Choir and saying, “Isn’t this a kick!”

In lieu of flowers, the family wishes donations be made to one of the organizations she supported above.

A memorial service will be held 2pm on Thursday, February 22, 2018 at First United Methodist Church, 200 W. 2nd Street, Roswell, NM. Inurnment will follow the memorial service in the First United Methodist Church Columbarium.
