Julie Kay Stout 12/15/1972 ~ 7/19/2009
Julie Kay Johnson Stout, dear wife, mother, sister and friend, passed away from complications related to a brain tumor on July 19, 2009. Julie is a beautiful person whose sense of humor, charity and goodness never succumbed to the physical trials her body experienced. While her passing is difficult for those that love her, she has left a legacy of love and faith that will never be forgotten.
Julie was born on December 15, 1972 to Susan Petty and Melvin Johnson in Logan, Utah.
She is the affectionate wife of Brandon Stout and the proud mother of Hiram (11), Avalon (10) Benjamin (6) and James (23 months).
While Julie is a bachelor's degree graduate of Brigham Young University, her most cherished occupation has been as a mother to her darling children. Julie is a graduate of Cyprus High School (1991) and served an honorable LDS mission in Sao Paulo, Brazil (Interlagos).
She is survived by her siblings Art, Ben, Amber, Angela, Dave, Jennifer and Aimee Johnson. She is fortunate to have both a father and stepfather who love her dearly, Melvin Johnson (Hallie) of Tyler, Texas; and David Johnson (Jane) of Murray, Utah. She has experienced a joyful reunion with her mother Susan Petty Johnson and her grandparents Julia and Rellis Petty.
Julie's gifts and talents are countless, chief among them are her great pride in her children, her unwavering support and love of her husband, and the powerful testimony she holds of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Julie's family extends particular heartfelt gratitude to Joyce and Mark Stout. Their selfless care for Julie will always be remembered with gratitude. We also thank her hospice nurse, Brenda Christiansen, hospice coordinator, Jackie McKay, KSL TV and Aposhian Gardens.
Funeral services under the direction of Russon Brothers Salt Lake Mortuary are scheduled for July 23rd at 12:00 noon at the Hunter 9th Ward building on 6400 West 3500 South. Friends and family members are invited to a viewing Wednesday, July 22nd from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Wednesday and from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Thursday at the same location. She will be interred at the West Jordan City Cemetery.

When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
all filled with tears for me,
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
and each time that you think of me, I
know you'll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand,
and said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye
For all my life, I'd always thought,
I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for,
So much left yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
and all the fun we had
If I could re-live yesterday
Just even for a while,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized,
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His great golden throne.
He said, "This is eternity,
And all I've promised you."
Today your life on earth is past,
But here life starts anew
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day's the same way
There's no longing for the past.
You have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did some things
You knew you shouldn't do.
But you have been forgiven
And now at last you're free.
So won't you come and take my hand
And share my life with me?
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here, in your heart.
Susan Louise Petty Johnson (1951 - 1995)
