Carla Mae Borup Johnson, 82, passed away in Tremonton, UT on November 28, 2018, with her loving Husband at her side. She was born August 2, 1936, in Paul, ID to Carl Stewart and Elizabeth Moss Borup. She married Burton Johnson on June 11, 1957, for time and all eternity in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple and they recently celebrated their 61st wedding anniversary.
She grew up in Boise, ID where she attended Boise Schools where she received her elementary education and graduated from Boise High School and went on to attend BYU. She lived throughout Utah and Idaho following Burton and supporting him in his career in the grocery business at Carl and Don's Grocery Stores where she worked as a financial clerk.
Carla volunteered as a Pink Lady at the Hospital and was a member of The Lions Club along with Burton where they helped further the mission of providing sight to those in need. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in all the auxiliaries of the Church including Relief Society President, Primary Teacher, Cub Scout Leader, and Young Women's Softball Coach. She also served a mission along with Burton at the Brigham City Bishop's Store House. Her greatest achievement was that of being a Wife, Mother and Grandmother and Great-Grandmother where she loved spending time with her family and supporting them in all their endeavors.
She was known for her handiwork and her porcelain dolls. Many would come from all over to buy her dolls and learn from her how to make them. She enjoyed making miniatures and porcelain figurines. She loved a great Softball game and was the ultimate Utah Jazz Fan. She was a kind and loving person with a quick wit and a great sense of humor. She was valiant in her testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and in furthering the Savior's mission to bring all unto him.
