Veva L. Johanson

La Grande, formerly of North Powder


Veva Laura Johanson, 91, of La Grande, died Sept. 22 at her daughter’s home in La Grande. Her memorial service will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday at First Baptist Church in La Grande. Interment is at the North Powder Cemetery. A viewing for family and friends will be from 5 to 7 p.m. today at Loveland Funeral Chapel.

 Veva was born Feb. 6, 1920, to Jay and Beulah (Yonce) Gorham in Stanfield. When she was 2 years old, her family moved to North Powder in a wagon drawn by a team of horses. She attended all her school years there.

On April 14, 1937, Veva married Carl (Bob) Johanson in Baker City. They made their home in North Powder and became the parents of three children. In 1946 they moved to the Hermiston area where Veva worked and raised her family. In 1969 they moved back to Union County where Veva spent the rest of her life.

Veva loved being in the mountains and hunting and fishing. She enjoyed crocheting, knitting and making quilts. She also liked to play her accordion and harmonica, and she would even yodel for her special friends. Veva was a proud member of the First Baptist Church and loved her church family. Her greatest joy, however, was being with her family. They were her treasure.

Survivors include her children and their spouses, Gary and Terri Johanson of White Salmon, Wash., and Eldeen “Sis” and Darrell Wagoner of La Grande; four grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren; and extended family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, husband and an infant daughter.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the La Grande First Baptist Church for their missions program, or to an organization of the donor’s choice, in care of Loveland Funeral Chapel, 1508 Fourth St., La Grande 97850.
