    • Obituary: Emma LaVon Johnson White
      Deseret News, The (Salt Lake City, UT) - Friday, September 21, 2001
      Our beautiful wife, mother, grandmother and sister passed away September 19, 2001.

      She was born October 7, 1916 to John E Johnson and Annie Beryl Featherstone , in American Fork, Utah. She graduated from South High and then attended Westminster College where she was voted Sun Queen. After a "whirlwind" (four year) courtship, she married Woodrow D. White, June 5, 1940 in the Salt Lake Temple. They shared 61 wonderful years together. Their love for dance and travel took them around the world where they were loved and appreciated on every continent.

      She was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many capacities. Bonnie touched the lives of everyone she encountered. Even strangers were drawn by her warmth, sweetness and inner beauty. Despite her many accomplishments, her greatest source of pride was her children and grandchildren. She was the touchstone of the whole family.

      She is survived by her husband, Woodrow D. White, children: Matthew (Jill) White, Dean (Kaye) White, Emma Jennette (Guy) Dugal, Scott (Melanie) White, Elizabeth (David) Smith, one sister Janice (Arden) Edwards, 19 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by two brothers, five sisters and her son, David.

      Funeral Services will be held Monday, September 24, 2001 at 12 Noon at the Sandy Utah Hidden Valley Stake Center, 1450 East Raddon Drive (12000 S.). Friends may call Sunday, September 23, from 6-8 p.m. at Wasatch Lawn Mortuary, 3401 S, Highland Dr. and 10:45-11:45 prior to services at the church. Interment at Wasatch Lawn Memorial park.
