Obituary Condolences

Gwenevere Johnson Delahunty 11/15/1920 ~ 5/28/2011 BOUNTIFUL Early on the morning of Saturday, May 28, 2011, midway through her 91st year, Gwenevere Johnson Delahunty joined her eternal family as the result of natural consequences attendant to her age. Born November 15, 1920 to Vivian Houtz Johnson and Richard Mendenhall Johnson in Springville, Utah. Gwen married her husband of 65 years, Colin S. Delahunty, in the Salt Lake Temple, on August 23, 1946. The descendant of an early pioneer family that valued knowledge and education, Gwen received her BS degree from Brigham Young University in 1942. She was a long time member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. Gwen was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served the Church, in various capacities, in many organizations of her home wards in both Ogden and Centerville. Gwen also served two missions alongside Colin, the first at the Visitors Center for the Mesa Arizona Temple and the second in Oakland, California. Beginning after her graduation from BYU, Gwen worked throughout her adult life as a respected executive secretary in Salt Lake City, Boise, Idaho and Ogden, and developed skills that served her well as Colin's secretary and scribe during his 19 years of active service as the Patriarch of the Centerville Stake. Gwen loved to garden and took great pleasure in observing plants and gardens throughout the United States, Australia and other countries during her travels. She had a beautiful Alto singing voice that sustained many a Ward Choir and, during her active life, was an ardent square dancer and a striving golfer. Preceded in death by her parents and by her only brother, Richard Johnson (Beverly). Survived by her husband Colin and son Robert (Pamela) of Bountiful, together with numerous nieces and nephews from both the Johnson and Delahunty families. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, June 2, 2011 at the Pheasant Ward Chapel, 950 Main Street, Centerville, Utah. Interment to follow at the Bountiful City Cemetery. Friends may call on the family on Wednesday evening from 6-8 p.m. at the Russon Brothers Bountiful Mortuary, 295 North Main Street, and prior to the services at the Ward from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. Online guest book available at
