Obituary for Pattie L. Johnston

Pattie never met a stranger, and once you were her friend, you were her friend for life. She was born in Pueblo, Colorado on March 6, 1956 to Daniel and Frances Martinez and moved to Arizona in 1974. She had a long career in the grocery business followed by a very successful real estate career. In her fifties Pattie started working in banking and quickly rose to the position of Branch Manager before retiring from banking in 2018. Pattie ended her career as the Associate Broker with Remax Right Choice in 2019.

Her first marriage gave her Jacque, her precious daughter. They shared a lifelong very close bond. In 1991 she married the love of her life, Don Johnston, and his two children, Derek and Courtney, became part of her family too. Don’s daughter Courtney married Chris Hanaver and in 2015 they had their daughter Tessa. Pattie and Don were thrilled with their granddaughter; Tessa brought so much joy to them both.

Pattie was known for her fabulous cooking, especially her tamales and green chili. She loved to entertain and she and Jacque would spend hours preparing wonderful party food.

Pattie loved to dress in style! She was always dressed to the nines and made certain her jewelry matched every outfit she wore!

Pattie loved to camp and travel with Don and many friends. She and Don made numerous trips in their RV, and by far their favorite destination was Rocky Point, Mexico.

Pattie touched so many lives in her short time on earth and she always lived life to the fullest. She will be deeply missed and loved by all who were blessed to call her friend.
