Donna June Johnson
CARBONVILLE-Our angel wife and mother, Donna June Bentley Johnson, passed away peacefully on Saturday, Jan. 26, 2008, in her home in Carbonville, Utah. Her husband and children were with her and sang her favorite hymns as she passed from our arms into the arms of loved ones on the other side.
June was born to Elba and Vivian Hamilton Bentley on June 22, 1930, in Bennett, Utah. Her parents moved to Price shortly thereafter, where she lived until she married Roger Val Johnson on March 21, 1949, in Elko, Nev. Val and June had their marriage solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple two years later. They made their home in Carbonville, Utah.
In addition to being an awesome wife and mother, June served faithfully in many leadership and teaching positions in the LDS church, and as a Scout and 4-H leader. She was a professional wedding cake decorator, a school crossing guard, and co-owner of the sewing/craft store, "The Calico House" in Price, Utah. June was very creative, and loved to paint pictures, sew, make quilts and porcelain dolls, and do various other crafts.
Whether she is known as "Mom", "Grandma", "Sister", "Aunt", or "Friend", her name is synonymous with charity - the pure love of Christ. She was an example of kindness, service, sacrifice, and loyalty. Even in her later years, when her life's memories would slip in and out, her concern for others came before herself. And of course, her unwavering faith in Christ, which we witnessed through her righteous example and teachings, will bless generations to come.
June is survived by her beloved husband, Roger Val Johnson; her children, Randy Val and Dora Johnson of Sandy, Utah, Duane and Linda Johnson of Carbonville, Scott and Coreena Johnson of Miller Creek, Donna and Donald Francisco of Enoch, Utah, Terry and Cherilyn Johnson of Spring Glen, and Julie and Gordon Mathis of Spanish Fork; as well as 30 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren.
