Geniel: A loving wife, mother, and grandmother

Colaborador: Springsteen Groupie :-) Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Geniel Johnson was born in Lynndyl, Utah on the 19th of December 1937 to Bert and Mary Johnson. Geniel grew up in Utah and graduated from Delta High School before attending BYU. While at BYU, she met Shirley Christensen. They were married in the Manti Temple on June 23, 1962. They settled in Royal City, a small farming community in central Washington, where they raised their seven children. Geniel had many callings throughout her life. She served in the presidencies of the relief society, young women's organization, and the primary as well as serving faithfully alongside her husband in the Argentina Resistencia Mission for three years. Even with all of her responsibilities, the callings that were most precious to her were those of wife, mother, grandmother. Geniel was an active member in her ward in Royal City but she was also a very active member of the community as well. Anyone who comes from a small town knows that high school sports tend to be a big deal. Despite Geniel's kind and loving demeanor, when her kids were out on the playing field or the court she was one of the feistiest people in the stadium. She is known for being one of the most outspoken fans to have attended the games at Royal High School which is a tradition carried on by her children and grandchildren to this day. Those that served in the Resistencia Mission during her time of service remember how loving she was. She always had a warm meal for the missionaries and did her best to make them feel right at home in the mission field. Despite her best efforts, she never quite mastered the Spanish language, but that did not stop her from speaking in church meetings and zone conferences with the missionaries. She always trusted that the spirit would bring her message to the hearts of the people she spoke to. Throughout her life, Geniel was known for passionate service and her love for everyone she came in contact with. Although she passed away in 2005 from cancer, her influence still lives on in the communities she served in and through her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
