Her smile was infectious. She was a fast friend to those she met. More than anything else, she loved her husband and family fiercely and was a wonderful wife, mother, and homemaker.
Born in Salt Lake City to Carl Frederick Reimann and Gladys Fidler March 16, 1943, Ann was the youngest of four children. She graduated from East High School. On June 21, 1963 she was sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple to her sweetheart, David Wallace Johnson. Together they built a beautiful life.
Ann was incredibly smart. She did everything well. She was very creative and artistic. She loved to dance. She enjoyed spending time decorating her home and working in her garden. She knew every nursery rhyme and loved sharing them with her grandchildren. Special occasions and holidays were her favorite and it brought her great joy to bring them to life with her elaborate decorations and parties thrown for family and friends. She was a dedicated member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She enjoyed studying and teaching the Gospel and will be remembered for the wonderful lessons she shared. But above all else, she adored being with her family-especially her husband, Dave.
Ann and Dave were truly inseparable. They traveled, served in many church callings, worked in the Jordan River Temple, and owned a family business together. After his tragic accident that left him quadriplegic, she cared for him for ten years and never complained. She was a noble example to those around her of how to love and serve. She has missed him terribly since he passed nearly seven years ago, and we are sure that the reunion they had was one for the books!
The last several years of her life, Ann remained strong as she battled head trauma, dementia, and breast cancer. She never lost her spunk or ability to make those around her laugh. She is already deeply missed.
Ann is preceded in death by her parents; her brother and sister Don and Jolene; and her beloved husband Dave. She is survived by her brother Rich; her children Anjie (Kim) Barney, Shane (Holly) Johnson, Carla (Darron) Kroll, and Troy (Sarah) Johnson; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
A viewing will be held Saturday, September 17, 2022 from 10:00 am-12:00 pm at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East Dimple Dell Road (10600 South) Sandy, UT 84092; followed by a graveside service and interment at Salt Lake City Cemetery, 200 “N” Street, Salt Lake City, UT 84103.
I saw your mother/grandmother's obituary in the Deseret News and after reading it, I wanted to tell you of my family's connection with yours. Ann sounded like a wonderful person. Like her, I am the youngest in my family and was born and raised in Boone, Iowa where your grandfather Carl served a mission for a while. He was there when my brother (18 years my senior) was born in 1919. Because my father was not a member of the Church, Elder Reimann gave him his baby blessing. My mother (Sue Stroble) named the baby Reimann Leon Stroble. Although that was somewhat of a strange first name, he was always very proud of it and refused to have a nickname. I grew up with stories of the young missionaries from Utah and how they made a difference in an area of the country that had few LDS members. I even have some old photos that were labeled "Elder Reimann and companion." My brother told me that Carl sent him a birthday card with a dollar bill in it for several years while he was young, but I think they lost track of each other eventually. I thought you would like to know how MY Reimann turned out. He served in the Army in WW2, graduated from Iowa State College in Ames, Iowa and was an engineer for General Electric Corp. his entire life, mostly in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was a faithful member of the LDS Church his entire life, serving in many capacities, including Bishop, High Counselor, and worker in the Chicago Temple. He has passed now and is greatly missed. Your family has meant a lot to ours. Thank you, and condolences on losing Ann.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of dear Annie Fannie, as her husband Dave would call her! She was such a dear woman to me, and cared for me, just as I was one of her children. I will always remember her saying to me, in times of need, "It is always darkest before the dawn." I am at peace to know she is with her beloved husband Dave. She will be dearly missed forever. Roxann Johnson.
Ann made me smile every time I saw her. I felt connected to her instantly and I’m glad to be her friend. I pray that she is cracking them up in heaven and having joyful reunions. I pray for peace for her family and loved ones.
Aunt Ann, I sure do love you and will miss your sweet spirit until we are together again. I also know that you're back with your love uncle Dave and with a whole slew of those who have gone on before you. I know that you are happy now to be out of this earthly realm and back in the presence of our father in heaven and until we who are left here to push onward i can only say that i will miss you and give my mom dad and all those who i love a big hug from me.
Ann was a fabulous dancer and friend of mine in high school. She will be surely missed along with your father Dave. What a fabulous couple they are! I will see you Saturday to celebrate the life of Ann, love from Nadine Nelson Allen
I have lots of good memories of growing up around Anne and Dave as one of their many nephews. I miss them both and find consolation in the fact that both are with Heavenly Father and no longer suffer from their mortal challenges. I miss you Aunt Ann!
Our family had the privilege of being friends with Anne during her time in St. George, Utah. One of my favorite memories was driving around town with Anne, sipping on smoothies and talking about life. During our conversations it was evident that she loved her family with her whole heart! Her kind eyes, beautiful smile and laugh will be missed. Love, The Cooper family
Love you Annie & will miss you. Till we meet Your Big Brother Rich
With all our love & prayers Ronnie. Rick, Mitch & family
I will bear the sadness knowing you are at a better place with your beloved husband David. I love you Ann as always
