M. Ann Johnson

September 11, 1944 — July 31, 2020

Our beloved sister, aunt and great aunt passed away unexpectedly at home on July 31, 2020. Ann was born on September 11, 1944 in Provo, Utah to N. Floyd Johnson and Anna Gerber Johnson. She lost her sweet mother Anna at the age of 9 years old and was blessed to be raised by her mother Hannah Baker Johnson. Ann graduated from Orem High School in 1962 and went on to attend Brigham Young University where she majored in Physical Education with a minor in Health Education. She had a passion for sports and while attending BYU, she played basketball, softball, volleyball and track and field. She spent 46 years in education but her most fond memories were as a teacher and coach at American Fork High School. She was a Caveman through and through and built many lasting relationships with those she taught, mentored and coached.  She carried this love of sports with her as not only a coach but as a spectator, cheerleader and our number one fan when it came to her family. You could always find her giving advice, talking sports and encouraging all of us to be the best we can be.

Ann was a devout member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served in many capacities as a Relief Society President, Primary President, Sunday School Teacher and Ward Librarian. She magnified every calling she had and continued to share her love for the Savior Jesus Christ with everyone around her.  During this tumultuous time, she made it a priority to reach out to her family through weekly Sunday thoughts where she shared her testimony of the gospel and taught gospel principles to her family. These messages are treasured by each of her family members.

Ann was known by many as sister, daughter, friend, teacher and coach, but her most cherished title was Aunt Ann (An An).  If you knew her, you knew that her family was the center of her world. She was always up for a lunch date, a ball game or an adventure with her “kids”. An An was a natural born teacher and taught many life lessons through her example. Often, it was not until later that you realized the lessons she had taught. She will be deeply missed but her legacy will live on through her family and those who were lucky enough to have known her.

Ann is survived by her sisters Carol (Allen) Wilde, Corrine (Dennis) Briggs and brother Robert Johnson. Her nieces and nephews, Julie (David) Price, Shawn (Brooke) Wilde, Brent (Yara) Wilde, Justin (Sarah) Wilde, Eric (Rachel) Johnson, Danial Gambler, Kara Ramirez and Livvie (Houston) Miller. Great nieces and nephews, Calli, Haley (Tavo), Carson, Jenna Kassel, Justine (Chandler), Kaden, Carter, Tate Wilde, Indie, Ashtyn Wilde, Brea, Harlee, Nixon, Connor Wilde, Carter and Isaac Johnson. She was preceded in death by her sweet parents, N. Floyd Johnson, Anna Johnson and Hannah Johnson.

We love you An An!  Families are forever!!  Until we meet again!!
