Sally Johnson

April 26, 2017

Beloved Mother of Stephanie Flores, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Sister, Wife, Aunt and Friend has gone home to the Lord.

Sally Johnson, 81, of Salt Lake City, Utah passed away April 26th surrounded in love by her family. Sally was born in Salt Lake City, Utah into a large family of 11 to Alfred and Muriel Lindquist. She was a graduate of Granite High School and  later married George Panos .  They spent a life time of happiness together, raising seven children and being devoted to the Catholic church until his death in 1981.
She remained strong and dedicated in raising her family and her employment at Mountain Bell. This is where she met her second husband Owen B. Johnson (OB). They later married and Sally moved to Big Sky Country Billings, Montana.  Sally spent 18 memorable years enjoying everything Montana had to offer; snow shoeing, cross country skiing, golf and the mountains. She volunteered at the local Hospital and was an active member of the Women’s Croiselle prayer group.

After OB’s passing, Sally moved back to Salt Lake City in 2001 in order to be closer to her family and again became actively involved by volunteering with the Good Samaritan program at the Cathedral of the Madeline.  Sally loved the Opera, the symphony, and the repertory theater, which she attended regularly with close friends.   We believe that in Sally’s last days, she held on a little longer to feel the warmth of the spring sun and see the beauty of her rock garden.  Sally loved her family, especially the grand babies. Grandma “Sal”/ “Yia-Yia” will be greatly missed by so many that loved her.
