Guyla Johnson

September 2, 1957 — December 17, 2018

After battling cancer for over two years, Guyla Lewis Johnson passed away at home in West Valley City the morning of December 17, 2018. The youngest daughter of James W. and Millicent H. Lewis, she was born September 2, 1957 at LDS Hospital. She grew up in Bountiful until her parents relocated to Morgan in 1969. She graduated Morgan High School in 1975, and attended Weber State University. She had a career with the State of Utah, working in Human Resources and other related areas until she retired in 2012. Despite being insulin dependent from the age of 12, and presented with a challenging diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer, she never lost her sense of humor, her fiery spirit or her passion for helping others.

She is survived by her daughter, Cassidy Lynn Johnson; kitties, Zelda & Ziggy; nephew, Jim Lewis (Trish); ex-husband and friend, Allan R. Johnson; sisters, Eva Jean Meenderink (Gary), Lynnette Lewis; brother, Russell Lewis as well as many nieces, nephews, and close friends.

She is preceded in death by her parents; sister, Lee Ann Altman; and favorite kitty Zozo.

Special thanks to Lynnette, Jim, Trish, Harlee, and Kaylee for their love and support during her illness.

Thanks also for the great care provided by Utah Cancer Specialists, Intermountain Health Care, Radiation Oncology, Medical Oncology, Medical Infusion Services, and Hospice Care.
