Theresa Luceal Johnson

Our loving daughter, sister, and mother, Theresa Luceal Schiwal Johnson, 56, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, from respiratory failure due to serious medical issues.  She was born on June 4, 1961, in Salt Lake City, Utah, to Francis Joseph and Shirley Curtis Schiwal.  She was the second oldest of five children, and in 2002 she had the honor of becoming the mother to two beautiful daughters, Xandria and Rayn.

Theresa was an avid collector of antiques and miniatures, and she could spend hours perusing every nook and cranny of shops looking for that special item. She enjoyed traveling and spending time with family and friends. She had a huge heart and infectious laugh that will be missed by all.

Theresa is survived by her mother, Shirley, Layton, Utah; daughters, Xandria and Rayn; siblings, Kathy Ferguson, Salt Lake City, Utah; Fred (Sheila) Schiwal, Stevensville, Montana; Frank (Danielle) Schiwal, Layton, Utah; and Barbara (Brian) Turner, Riverdale, Utah; and her precious dog, Lucy.  She is also survived by 11 nieces and nephews and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.  She was proceeded in death by her father, Francis, and nephew, Robert Ferguson.

The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses in the Emergency and Critical Care Units at St. Mark’s Hospital, Salt Lake City, Utah, for their tireless care of Theresa over the past few weeks. 

At her request, no formal services will be held.  She will join her father in a celebration of their birthdays and lives this summer in Torrey, Utah, where they will be laid to rest.  In lieu of flowers, if you wish, please donate to a charity of your choosing.  Cremation under the direction of Aaron’s Mortuary, Ogden, Utah.

This makes me so sad I went to school with Theresa. The last few years I have been thinking about her and tried to search for her, but I could not find anything about her. Today I was thinking 9/5/2020 about her and decided to look here on Google. I am so sorry for everyone's loss. Love Carolyn Jenkins Gulbransen

I went all through school with Theresa. She was an awesome girl and probably the smartest person I have ever met. I have not seen her since school and I feel bad about that. To the family: I am so sorry you had to say goodbye to Theresa so soon. Jeff Sweeney

Aunt Shirley words can not express the feelings you are having right now, this is so hard cherish all those memories and I'm sure there are millions. Barbara and the rest of the family you all are in myself and Howard's thoughts and prayers. I can remember when we would stop on our way to and from Calif. She was such a pretty little girl curly hair. We have great memories which we will cherish. May she rest in peace. she is with her Daddy and is pain free.
Our deepest Condolences to your families.
