Ruth Johnson was my aunt (my mother's sister). She lived on Montrose for many years

(at 1014 and 1020). Ruth lived many years with my grandmother on Pine Street up until the time she married Milt Carlson. Afterward, Ruth and Uncle Milt moved into an apartment on Meridian Ave. Ruth had a long and satisfying career working with my Uncle Milt in his advertising company. Around 1970, they bought 2 condos in a high rise building next door to the Hotel Del in Coronado. That is where they lived out their lives - next to the ocean.

Ruth was very opinionated, but good hearted, and never the one to suffer fools gladly. The last time I saw my Aunt Ruth was in her 3rd floor condo in 1993. We visited about 2 hours and she provided me plenty of laughs. It was the most we had ever talked. In December of that year, Ruth passed away. I feel fortunate to have had Ruth as my aunt.
