Our Loving Mom, Grandma and Sister, Ann Wheelwright Johnson returned to her Heavenly Father on September 9, 2017. Ann was born in Ogden, Utah, to Mabel Ririe and Albert S. Wheelwright on April 19, 1926. She married B. Aldus Johnson on August 26, 1947, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in various callings over the years. Her most loved calling was serving many years as an ordinance worker in the Ogden Temple with her beloved husband. Ann loved her family. She used her many talents of handiwork and candy making to bless the lives of her family and friends.
