Landra Adams

January 19, 1954 — December 29, 2019

Landra Johansen Adams, lately of Payson, Utah, was born on January 19, 1954 to

Niels LaVon and Carrie Mae Johansen. She died on December 29, 2019 from

complications of an infection. From the age of seven on she was raised by her

father and his wife Louise Roberts in Orem, Utah.

Landra was preceded in death by her father, LaVon, brothers Wendell Charles,

and Robert Neil Johansen, and her husband John H. (Jack) Adams. She is survived

by her son Tyler William Satchwell and his wife Clare of Carrollton Texas; mother

Louise Johansen Atwood of Elk Ridge, Utah; brother Michael Johansen (Lecia) of

Ninety-six, South Carolina; sisters Donna Kerr (Rick) of West Point, Utah, Christine

Johansen of Bremerton, Washington, and Marcia Vincent (David) of Elk Ridge,

Utah, as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews who she

took immense pleasure in spending time with.

Landra attended Orem Junior High and learned to play the Viola and the Piano

during that time. She was a wonderful pianist and brought pleasure to herself

and others through this talent. She attended Orem High School where she was a

member of the Madrigals, an acapella group. After graduation she attended LDS

While attending LDS Business College she met and married Randy Satchwell and

subsequently gave birth to her son Tyler.

She lived in Ventura, California for many years where she worked as a

typographer and Labor Union President. She loved her role as she represented

her colleagues at Ventura College and strived to improve their lives.

When she returned to Utah she used her notably charming telephone voice to

become the top sales person at the company she worked for. She won many

prizes and incentives for her work, one of which was a trip to Disneyland which

she chose to share with her 13 year old niece.

Landra loved learning and returned to school again at The College of Pastoral

Supervision and Psychotherapy to become an Associate Clinical Chaplain in 2012.

She had a gift for comforting and serving people which brought her great joy. She

served in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints as a Temple Worker,

Primary Worker, and in a Relief Society Presidency. She developed a strong

testimony and loved the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

During her final years she lived at Parkway Health in Payson where she often used

the skills she had developed as a chaplain to alleviate the challenges of those she

lived with. She started a book club at that time and would read aloud to her

friends and neighbors. She will be missed by many.

Providing service to those around her was an innate part of this beautiful woman.

Landra made many friends through her efforts and treasured their

companionship. She was intelligent, kind, well read, articulate, and enjoyed a

good discussion. She delighted in family events and thoroughly enjoyed a good
