Mary Johnson, 74, of Loveland, CO, formerly of Laramie, passed away November 17, 2021 from complications of Alzheimer’s. She is survived by her husband of 52 years, Glenn Johnson. Mary was born November 26, 1946 in Laramie, to Alma (Jo) Manarolla Heckart and Gleed Heckart. Her father died in 1950 when she was 3. Her mother died in 2000 from Alzheimer’s. Mary was of fiery and loving Italian descent which made her the “special” person loved by all. Mary was an honors graduate of Laramie High School and the University of Wyoming. For several years, she worked in the legal arena in Wyoming and Florida and the Department of Energy in WY. She became Office Manager for the University of Wyoming Men’s Basketball team starting in 1983, where she found her “calling”. “Mary’s “Dream Job” with the Cowboy’s program lasted 27+ years until retirement in 2010. She was inducted into the University of Wyoming’s Hall of Fame along with the 1986-1987 “Sweet 16” Men’s Basketball Team. Mary’s dedication to Cowboy Men’s basketball players and coaching staff was beyond reproach.
Following cremation, a celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
