ALBANY - Mae Guice Ohman, 91, of Linwood, NJ, died June 13, 2014 at Brandell Estates.
Mrs. Ohman was a native of Pine Level (Montgomery County), AL. She was the daughter of Ray Chappell Guice and Alice Parker Guice (Capell). She graduated from Sidney Lanier High School in Montgomery, Alabama.
While employed at Maxwell Field (now Maxwell AFB) during World War II, she met her husband Richard K. Ohman, a native of the Boston area. They were married over 65 years until his death. Her husband’s career as a military air traffic controller brought them to such diverse locations as Boston (where her 2 children were born), Lexington, KY, Cincinnati, OH, Salt Lake City, UT, Fairbanks, AK, and Tucson, AZ until they finally settled in Somers Point, NJ (Atlantic County) where she lived the final 55 years of her life.
In addition to a full time job at the NAFAC base in Atlantic County, she was active in civic and charitable work in that area. Mrs. Ohman was a dedicated member of Seaview Baptist Church in Linwood, NJ.
Besides her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a brother, Morgan Guice, Montgomery, AL and a sister, Mary Frances (Mrs. Edmund) Landau of Albany. She and her sister frequently visited each other in their homes, and she had many friends and contacts in Albany.
Survivors include a daughter, Deborah Ohman-Zimet, Boca Raton, FL; a son, Richard K. Ohman, Jr., Bradenton, Fl and Costa Rica; 3 grandchildren: Michael C. Ohman, Winter Garden, FL, Ashley (Mrs. Alex) Kriss, Columbus, OH, and April Ohman, Bradenton, FL.
