Irene Wilson Johnson passed away on April 30, 2015 in her home surrounded by her family after an extended illness. She would have been 87 years old in three weeks. She was born in Bountiful, Utah on May 20, 1928 to Peter Adshead Wilson and Hettie Jane Call Wilson in the home where she was raised with her four brothers and two sisters. She attended Davis High School and later earned her GED, which was pleased her very much.. She met Alexander Dick Johnson of Price, Utah on a double date with her cousin. After a short courtship they were married on March 30, 1946 in the room where she was born in Bountiful. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple in June, 1961. They moved to Astoria, Oregon and then Tacoma, Washington where their two children, Laura and Roger were born and raised. During the depot consolidations in 1962 they moved back to Utah, settling in Tooele where they purchased a home, They were unique as the only couple who were returning to the state of Utah as part of the consolidations. She and her husband lived in that home for the rest of their lives. Growing up in rural Utah during the the Great Depression, times were hard; she always appreciated the abundance from the LORD she had with her family in Tooele. She worked at VistaLiner Campers and then Tooele Army Depot as a carpenter in the Box and Crate Division until she retired in 1981. Dick, her husband of 37 years, died in October, 1983. She enjoyed traveling out of country and on cruises with her travel companion, Junior Rose (JR). She was a proud member of the LDS Church, the Red Hat Society and the Moose Lodge. She also enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grand-and great grandchildren, her sister, Amelia Homer, and her children and grandchildren.

Johnson (Maren Derum), grandchildren, Brenda Oliphant (Ben), Bradley Young (Jessica), Victoria Nash (Steven), and Stephanie Johnson and her six great-grandchildren.
