I am an LDS Chaplain's wife. We first met Lucile and Johnny in Heidelberg, Germany in 1967. We invited Lucile to speak at every post to which we were assigned for over 20 years, to include the post at which we retired. She came to Hawaii as the keynote speaker for the First Army Women's Conference. I knew she could get the Conference off the ground and she did. That was in 1987 and it is still going strong in Hawaii. I then invited her to Ft. Lewis, Washington in 1995 to do the same. The commanding General invited her back a second year to share her with the whole post. He said to his command group, "I have just heard the greatest speaker I have ever heard in my life." The hospital commander from Madigan hospital said to her, "You are the Army's treasure." That Women's Conference continues on to this day in 2013. She called herself my "other mother," and truly she taught me so very much about speaking and not wasting words, but being specific. She taught me about connecting with people. I helped a woman I Visiting Taught write her biography as she was dying, because of a comment made to a young woman who was dying who came up to Lucile at a Ft. Lewis Woman's Conference who said she was dying and wanted her children to remember her. Lucile told her to write a journal and share who she was and what she valued. My husband and I called Lucile over the years. We spoke to her not long before her passing. She thanked me for being part of her life. She thanked me for calling her and reminiscing with her. She is one of the legacy sisters in my life. We have always been close. She has always contacted me or given me something at a time when it was needed and how she knew, I do not know! One of those connections was through thoughts that traveled from London to Hawaii over spiritual airways. I know we will be connected once again. The time is not far distant when all that once seemed lost will be restored to us in its fullness. Much love to you, Johnson family.

The Caring

Warmed to the core -
No fire could have done it better.

A simple hand of friendship
clasped my own
and drew me close
and wrapped my heart in love.

You made me know you cared.
Long years from now
I'll glow in the retelling
of this moment that we shared.

Judy M. Stoeltzing - I love my friend Lucy Belle. Our last visit was early July. We had a fine talk as she "held court" in her recliner. God bless her wonderful family. MIZPAH! (Genesis 31:49)

I first heard Lucile Johnson speak at an Education Week in Las Vegas shortly after I was baptized in November 1977. She said something that made a big impression on me and I will never forget. She said "husbands treat your wives like queens like when you were dating." At the time I was dating the young man who introduced me to the Church and baptized me. I realized that if he didn't treat me like a queen while we were dating then what would marriage be like so I broke-up with him. A couple years later I saw her in Hawaii while attending BYU-HC and thanked her. In 1984 after serving a mission and getting ready to graduate from BYU, get married and move to Georgia I got a phone call from my future Bishop- Lucile's son Mark Johnson. I was thrilled to learn the connection. My husband and I became fast friends with Mark and Loraine and their children. One time we helped them move into a new home and Lucile was there too. I got a kick out of the fact that she was wearing high heels to help them move. I love your family. I'm sorry to hear of your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

In Mesa, AZ I was watching the Tabernacle Choir program and was surprised to see Lucile's picture on screen with the word Obituary. We heard her speak in Provo at Ed Week. We heard her speak in Mesa through CES. I listen to her tapes. We still love her. Many, many people were blessed through her talk and actions. My husband and I were deeply touched and taught by her ability to teach the core of important things and do so with a fantastic sense of humor. God has blessed you and will continue to do so through your parents.
