Obituary for JoAnn Johnson Fleenor Simmonds

6/19/1934 ~ 1/ 31/ 2018

Our dearly loved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend, JoAnn Johnson Fleenor Simmonds, passed away quietly in her sleep while surrounded by family after a short illness. She was born June 19, 1934 to Erb M. Johnson and Florence B. Johnson in Tooele, Utah. She was raised in Tooele, Utah. She married Gail E. Fleenor on February 14, 1953. They made their home in Salt Lake City, Utah raising their three daughters. Gail died December 2, 1982; she later married Howard Simmonds June 28, 1991.

JoAnn worked doing accounting and bookkeeping while Gail attended college. She found her home at Evans & Sutherland where she served as Accounts Payable Supervisor, Treasury Analyst and Fleet Manager for the Company automobiles. She was also their first Company Facility Security Officer, working with government classified security until 1982. She was with Evans & Sutherland from 1973 until her retirement in 1997 at which time Howard built their home in Stansbury Park, Utah.

JoAnn loved hosting parties in their beautiful home, always making people feel welcome. She was a die-hard fan of the University of Utah football team and for many years she and Howard attended games and tail-gating parties with friends. She enjoyed traveling, cooking and golfing. She took delight in family and friend gatherings and her weekly luncheons with her dear friend, Mary Burns. She will be greatly missed by many.

She is survived by husband, Howard E. Simmonds; daughters, Sharla Rodriguez, Carol White (Chad) and Julie Casey; and grandchildren, Tracy Richmond, Jennifer Versteeg, Danica Leon, Amanda Rodriguez, Brieana White, Christopher Rodriguez, Taryn White and Megan Casey; 12 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great grandchild; sister, Roxie Dobson; and sister-in-law, Sheila Sparks.
