Luana Davis

October 25, 1923 — March 21, 2024

North Logan, Utah

Luana Fellger Johnson Davis was born in Logan, Utah on October 25, 1923 to Uben Russell Johnson and Louise Fellger.  She passed peacefully on March 21, 2024 in North Logan, Utah. She made each of her 36,673 days on earth better than the day before.

She had very fond memories of growing up in Logan with her three younger brothers, Fellger, Elmer and Louis. They would spend the whole week between Christmas and New Years at their Grandpa and Grandma Johnson’s singing songs and lighting firecrackers.  Frequent trips to visit family in Canada were filled with catching gophers for a nickel each and being cornered in the outhouse by Grandpa Fellger’s billy goat.

Luana enjoyed dancing around the Maypole each May 1st while attending the old Woodruff Elementary School in Logan.  She later rode her bicycle or walked to Logan Junior High School, uphill both ways no doubt.  She always remembered her favorite pink satin and chiffon skirt that she wore to dances at Logan High School.  She later attended a local beauty school where she became the family beautician.

She met Lynn H. Davis while he was attending Utah State University.  She was smitten by his quick wit and red hair.  They married on April 24th, 1945 in the Logan Temple.  

She soon had to learn and do everything being a mother for eight children.  Serving her family was her greatest work.  Constantly cleaning, cooking, and keeping track of everyone filled her days. She enjoyed all kinds of work, whether helping Lynn with farm work or sewing Easter dresses for the girls, her devotion to her family was her most important virtue.  No one ever left her kitchen without having another bite of food.

The homes they made in Corvallis, OR, Las Vegas, NV, Logan, UT, River Heights, UT and at the foot of Crow Mountain just north of Smithfield, UT were always gathering places for family and friends.

As each new grand and great grandchild joined the family, she looked at them as though she knew and loved them her whole life.  Even the last one born one hundred years after her own birth sparked that special light in her eyes.

Luana and Lynn enjoyed their lives together for 73 years.  She enjoyed many years with fellow members of the USU Emeriti Association.  Lynn passed on in 2018.

She loved serving others through her temple attendance and many callings in the LDS church.  While living her last years at the Maple Springs center, she enjoyed getting reacquainted with old friends and making new ones.  She truly enjoyed dining with her friends she called her “lunch ladies”.  She often welcomed new residents and helped them feel comfortable.  We are grateful to her extended family at Maple Springs for their love and care.  

A heartfelt thank you to her daughter Jane for helping her transition to Maple Springs. Also a sincere thank you to her daughter Pat and her husband Scott who spent so much time caring for her needs. And a special thanks to all the “Grandma Helpers”.  

Luana’s and Lynn’s children are: Steven Lynn (deceased – Beth Myler), Lynnette Louise (Keith Pickett), Julia Ann (deceased), Jane, Patricia (Scott Marshall), Jay Johnson (Shaley Smith), LuAnn (Kent Erickson) and Paul Ray (Julie Gardner).  The Davis family includes 28 grandchildren and 48 great grandchildren.

Luana’s strong heart and spirit carried her body for a century.  Her love will carry her family forever.

The viewing will be held Friday evening, March 29th from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints located at 155 West, 400 North, Smithfield, UT.  There will also be a viewing prior to the funeral service on Saturday, March 30th from 10:30-11:45 AM. The funeral service will begin at noon at that same location.

The funeral service will be broadcasted at: https://zoom.us/j/99404294453
