March 7, 1974 – February 25, 2022
South Salt Lake City, UT—Wendy Johnson Schultz was called to the house of our Savior on February 25, 2022 at the age of 47. Wendy was the 2nd oldest of 8 children born to Vanner and Kathy Johnson on March 7, 1974 in Bountiful, UT. Always ready to embark on her next adventure, Wendy graduated from Wood Cross High and quickly set out to build her family, including the addition of 2 wonderful daughters and 2 wonderful sons. Wendy has always been a social butterfly who sought friendship wherever she went. It wouldn’t be uncommon to see her visit someone new – who would look like her best friend – only to find out they had just met. She had a way of making everyone feel special, or seeing in others what they might not be able to see in themselves. Many friends will remember her as kind and loyal, someone who could do anything to help a friend. Ever since she was a little girl, she has always been close to her family, especially her sisters, although there were times when they all fought (like siblings tend to do) , they were all quick to forgive. Wendy wasn’t one to hold grudges and was often the first to break the silence if she felt like it had been too long. Her children remember the excitement Wendy brought to each holiday season. It seemed like there was never a lack of decorations to make even the smallest holiday memorable. From the excessive nature of her Christmas decorations to the countless number of American flags for the 4th of July, she had enough decorations to make people wonder where all the decorations were kept when they weren’t strewn about for the last holiday. on the calendar. She was also a very creative person, who found joy in creating beautiful works of art using anything she could find, or from the simplest things. Whether she creates choirs of angels as Christmas tree ornaments from different pasta noodles, whether she ties pretty bows in baby blankets to give to her siblings for a new addition or to celebrate adding a grandchild. Her creative spirit and artistic ability lived on for many years in the hearts of her friends and family (as well as on their Christmas trees and front doors) and will continue to inspire and delight for years to come. . Wendy passed away to her mother Kathleen Adamson Johnson and her grandson Archer Joseph Anderson. Wendy is survived by her children and grandchildren; Courtney, Jarret and Karra Anderson, Stephanie, Devan, Beau and Allie Wilson, Austin Michael Schultz and Jacob William Schultz. Wendy is also survived by her father and stepmother; Vanner L and Terry Johnson as well as his siblings, Lauralee Toone, Vanner L. Johnson Jr, Karyn Vigil, Karl Johnson, David Johnson, Diantha Mangelson and Joseph Johnson. Wendys’ celebration of life will be held Monday, March 14 at Faith Baptist Church 2430 N Fairfield Rd, Layton Ut 84041, doors open 6:00-8:30 p.m.
