May 2, 1927 ~ July 19, 2009
Our beloved mother and friend, Renona May Johnson Candland, 82, of Pleasant Grove passed away quietly in her home on Sunday, July 19, 2009. Renona was born May 2, 1927 in Acequia, Minadoka Co. Idaho, to Leander Calvin Johnson and Mary Jane Whittle Johnson. Renona married her WWII pen pal and love of her live Harry Card Candland Oct 24, 1947 in the Manti, UT Temple.
Renona (Dolly) graduated from Pleasant Grove High School and attended BYU. She was a member of the Army Corp of Nurses while pursuing her nursing degree during WWII. She worked for many years as a Practical Nurse, Seamstress at Baileys, and delivered paper for the Deseret News. She was an active member of the LDS Church and served many years teaching primary and as a Den Mother. She also taught primary at the Utah State Developmental Center Branch.
Mom loved her family and was proud, not boastful, of her children and grandchildren's accomplishments. She enjoyed afternoon drives and exploring new places. She was a fixer. She had a subtle sense of humor and often the recipient of her practical joke never realized that she was behind the deed. Mom loved the LDS gospel and always turned to the Lord during times of trial.
Her listening ear, love and support will be missed by all, but more so by her family.
She is survived by three children: Debora (Stuart) Jackson, Edwin James (Kirsten Sanders), and Laura (Adam) Jones, 8 grandchildren: Jeremy S Jackson, Carisa D Jackson, Angelika M. Jones, Jasmin E. Candland, Jacob A. Jones, Nicholas S. Jones, Allison Candland and James A Candland, sister: Ila June (Eldon) Farnes and brother, Andy W. Johnson.
Renona was preceded in death by her sweetheart and husband Harry; sons Henry Bruce and Glen Harry; brothers, Edwin, Marvin and Calvin (JR).
