JOHNSTON -- James Houston Eccleston Johnston died, age 90, on Friday, March 18, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Nick-named "Be" (family lore: as a child he couldn't pronounce 'me' and would say, "Give it to Be"). Be was born into a historically prominent Maryland family at their summer home 'Burnside,' where his grandfather started a 500-acre dairy farm in the Green Spring Valley, in Stevenson, MD (formerly Eccleston, MD), outside of Baltimore. He was a member of the Society of Cincinnati, whose members are direct descendants of officers of the American Revolution. Be's formative years were spent on Burnside with five siblings, where adhering to the propriety and social mores of the upper echelon did not prevent him from youthful adventures and high-jinks, such as spending summers working at a family-owned mine panning for gold, or driving a car with friends cross-country. When World War II broke out Be was at first unable to join up due to poor eyesight, so in 1942 he volunteered for the American Field Service, serving with the British 8th Army, and driving ambulances across the African desert. Though he seldom discussed the war except for humorous anecdotes, exploits of his valor are described in the book Ambulance in Africa, written in 1945 by Evan Thomas, who mentions Be by name. Following service with the British Army, Be was finally able to enlist in the U.S. Marines in 1943. He was assigned to the 5th Marine Division, which went to Iwo Jima. Fortunately, Be was left behind in the rear echelon in Hawaii. Be received an Honorable Discharge in 1945. Be attended high school at Saint Andrews in Delaware (featured in the movie The Dead Poet's Society), and Trinity College in CT before the war. After the war he attended Georgia Tech on the GI bill. Be lived all over the country, ultimately preferring the west to life on the east coast. The majority of his career was spent with the Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co., where he was sales rep/field agent for TX, AZ, and NM, receiving numerous awards before retiring in 1992 after 25 years. Among Be's many interests were horse racing, racing chariots, and driving his team of 'minis' in parades and to area nursing homes, to the enjoyment of the residents. Be is survived by wife, Jean Johnston; son, J.H.E "Excy" Johnston (Amy), of AR; sister, Caroline "Carrie" Gardiner, of AZ; and numerous stepchildren, nephews, nieces, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and many, many friends. He was preceded in death by first wife, Rozenia Dunn Johnston and daughter, Martha "Mattie" Johnston, and his second wife, Flo Watkins, as well as his parents and four brothers. An honorable man with an infectious sense of humor, Be saw only the good in everyone he met, and cultivated friendships of all ages. A life-long Episcopalian, both Be's brother and uncle were noted Episcopal priests. Services will be held on April 9 at 11:00 a.m., St. Bede's Episcopal Church, 1601 S. St. Francis Drive, Santa Fe, NM 87505. Telephone: 505 982 1133. A reception at the church will follow immediately afterwards. Memorial contributions may be given to the following nonprofits: Wing Spur Wild Horses (www.wingspur.org); and the von Hippel Lindau Family Alliance (www.vhl.org). Arrangements are under the direction of Berardinelli Family Funeral Service 1399 Luisa Street Santa Fe, NM 87505 (505) 984-8600 Please sign our guestbook for the family at: www.berardinellifuneralhome.com

KROTH -- Doris Jane Majors Kroth, 80, passed away on Sunday, March 20, 2011. She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 59 years, Roger Kroth. She is survived by her brother JR Majors and wife Ruth, Overland Park, KS; her sons, Michael and wife Lana of Boise, ID and David of Santa Clarita, CA; daughters, Marianne of Albuquerque, NM and Amy Holt and husband Mike of Portales, NM; five grandchildren, Shane (Lisa) and Piper Kroth, Kacy (Lukas) Cash, SrA Travis Holt and Jason Gonzales; five great-grandchildren, Alex, Madison, Karabella, Marlee and Abrahm; and her nieces Janis Howard and Karen Bogle and their families. Jane was born on March 21, 1930 in Roff, OK to Jess and Flora Mae Majors. She was truly a Depression baby and grew up in rural Oklahoma where times were difficult. They lived life without running water, used the "outhouse", and had to auction off all of their worldly goods and leave the farm. She often reminded her family members that "but for the Grace of God we would have put our mattress on top of our old car (like in the book 'Grapes of Wrath') and we would have had to go to California." Because of this experience she drilled into her children the importance of spending and saving money wisely. Good fortune came to them when they moved to Winfield, KS where her parents ran the Hudson Gas Station. After graduating from high school in Winfield, Jane attended Southwestern College where she worked her way through school as a telephone operator. She married Roger and they started a family. After her last child was born she continued her education and received her bachelor's degree from Wichita State University and her Master's degree from the University of Kansas. The family headed to Albuquerque, NM where she worked as a special education teacher and diagnostician for the Albuquerque Public Schools for over 20 years. When she retired she developed a deep interest in the genealogy of the Kroth and Majors families and was the family historian. She was also an avid gardener and has passed this interest to her great grandchildren. She loved to read and shared not only her passion for reading with her children but in particular the author Louis L'Amour, because he wrote about the Southwest. She enjoyed fellowship with her friends in Naomi Circle at St. John's United Methodist Church in Albuquerque. A family-only celebration will be held at a future date. Please visit our online guestbook for Jane at RememberTheirStory.com Lovingly Pre-planned at FRENCH 10500 Lomas Blvd. NE (505) 275-3500
