Obituary for Lola Marie Johnson-Alves

Lola Marie Johnson was born on April 17th 1955 to loving parents of Bernice and Clanson Johnson.

Lola attended Ursuline Academy in Dedham. She furthered her education and graduated in 1977 at Northwestern University in Evansto, Illinois with a Bachelors in Psychology. When returning to Boston, she worked for the Black Caucus at the State House. Lola became a social worker and worked for JRI in downtown until her retirement in 2015.

Lola was a burst of fire who exuded strength and wisdom to the many lives she touched. If you wanted to shop till you dropped and come home with bargains, you called Lola. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a dry wit. Lola enjoyed reading and keeping up with Marvel and animation movies. Lola was a lover of music and all arts, she would often enjoy listening to jazz like Peter White and going to Sculler’s jazz lounge with her sister Cynthia.

The most important part of her life was taking care of her children, her grandchildren, and family. Lola had a heart that could embrace anybody. She went by Miss Johnson to all her children friends and had a personality that could draw anybody in like gravity.

Lola will be loved, remembered and survived by her husband Ulisses Lima Alves, her sons Brandon, Christopher, Aaron, her daughter Elizabeth, her granddaughter Elliana, Grandsons Ezekiel, Samuel, and Isiah, her sister Cynthia, brother Anthony, nieces Courtney and Cristina, and grandniece Aaliyah.

Lola is predeceased by her parents Bernice and Clanson Johnson.
