Luana Karen Greenhalgh, 81, returned home to her Heavenly Father on December 8, 2017. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Luana was born April 6, 1936 in Huntington Park, California. She attended Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah.
At BYU, she met her eternal sweetheart Richard. They married in the LDS Salt Lake City temple 59 years ago.
Luana was a faithful member of the LDS Church and served in many positions. She had unwavering faith and inspired all she came in contact with. Her life’s mission was to help others develop faith and a stronger relationship with their Savior. She was a wonderful example and gave countless hours of selfless service.
Luana is survived by her loving husband Richard N. Greenhalgh, four children; Kimberly Smith (Scott), Kent (Brian Roberts), Kevin (Laura) and Kristin Crook (Spencer), fifteen grandchildren and seventeen great grandchildren.
The family thanks the staff at American Orchards Assisted Living, Banner Gateway Hospital and Hospice of the Valley for their tender loving care.
