Mary Alma Johnson was born on Dec. 5, 1932, in Stephenville, Newfoundland. She entered her heavenly home on Dec. 10, 2022, just days after celebrating her 90th birthday. She was a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and a faithful believer in Jesus.
Alma was the second child of Aurelius Joseph Millege and Mary Evangeline White. Following the loss of their father to tuberculosis, Alma (age five years) and sisters, Loretta and Ina, were placed in the Belvedere Convent and Orphanage (also known as St. Michael’s Orphanage) while their one brother was placed in a boys’ orphanage in St. John’s, Newfoundland. She received her education in the orphanage over the next eight years.
