Lela Armstrong Johnson

Lela Armstrong Johnson, 94 years of age passed away November 3, 2012 at her home in Layton, Utah where her family gathered to proclaim their love and last respects. She was born to Oscar and Martha Ellen (Thompson) Armstrong in Basalt, Bingham, Idaho the 5th day of September 1918. She and Axel Delmar ‘Dee’ Johnson were married and later the union was solemnized in the Idaho Falls, Idaho LDS Temple. Lela graduated with high marks while she obtained her beautician license in 1938. Because of her skill, she had a large cliental for more than thirty years. During her lifetime she continued to learn and became proficient as an organist, pianist, artist, and cook. She learned upholstery, pattern-making and was an excellent seamstress. She made many beautiful quilts, knitted and crocheted many articles. Whatever needed to be done or needed to be learned, she did. Learning and labor was her motto. She served a mission for several years doing temple work for her church. She is survived by two of her four children; Marva (David) Rampton, of Syracuse and Duane (Annette) Johnson of Mt. Green: her siblings Lola Andrews of Salmon, Idaho, Norma Willard of Salmon, Carole Eileen (Mike) Cussic of Tendoy, Jack (Mona) Armstrong of Salmon, Verla (LaVar) Hutchinson of Salmon, Verl (Nola) Armstrong also of Salmon. She was preceded in death by her husband, ‘Dee’, a son, Steven, her daughter Noreen, a grandson, a great grandson and her siblings, Melvin, Kady, Don, Bobby Ray, Mary, and Richard. The last three and one-half years she was nursed and cared for by her granddaughter, RN Terri Rampton. Also our appreciation goes to Applegate and especially to Inspiration Hospice for their kindness and care. Funeral services will be held in Salmon, Idaho Thursday Nov. 8th, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at the Jones & Casey Funeral Home with viewing one hour before services. Burial will be in the Salmon Cemetery. Arrangements are under the direction of the Jones & Casey Funeral Home of Salmon, Idaho.
