In her autobiography, Luella's sister Ruby wrote: "My sister Ella, who was then about two years old, had inflammatory rheumatism and had to be moved and carried on a pillow for many weeks. My Grandfather, Warren Stone Snow, came to our house and with some of the Elders he administered to Ella. We all had great faith in the administration of the Elders and anointing with the consecrated olive oil."

This is from The History of Mapleton, by Ralph K. Harmer and Wendell B. Johnson, on page 151. Luella (Ella) Snow, daughter of Edwin Marion and Frances Evaline Perry Snow, was born at Mapleton, Utah, September 10, 1890. She attended schools in Mapleton. In her early years she grew up in a very nice, comfortable home which was always open for parties, candy pulls and playing games. In these early times before electricity, they made their own entertainment and spent much time singing around the old reed organ and listening to records played on the “gramophone”, which had a crank on the side to wind it up to play about one or two records. She married Elmer Johnson in 1911. Soon after their marriage, they built a home just north of the city building on a two-acre plat. In this home six of their eight children were born. During the summers she went with her husband and small children to work in the timber in Carbon County, where he cut trees for mining props and railroad ties. The family would camp in a tent. In one end was a cook stove and table with shelves for supplies and cooking utensils. In the other end were beds or bunks. It was a vacation for the family. However, when the children were old enough, they helped out by riding or leading the horses, “skidding” the timber down the drag roads to be loaded onto the wagon, then hauled to the railroad for shipping to the mines. Later on, during the summers Ella would take the children to the homestead on Billy’s Mountain, about two or three miles northeast of Thistle. This trip would take more than half a day in a wagon. Sometimes they would stop at Cold Springs for lunch. Much of the time Ella was at home with the children so they could always attend school, while Elmer was working on the ranch, raising dryland crops, hay, grain, potatoes. They had cattle and horses and always a pony for the children to ride. All through her life she was a hard worker. At the family home she always had a garden, berries and fruit trees. There was plenty of produce, some to sell and some to give away to neighbors. She usually had a cow to milk when Elmer was not at home. She was a wonderful seamstress and made clothes for her children, nieces, and friends of her children. She did much handwork, embroidery and crochet work, and also quilts for her children, grandchildren and friends, many from her own original designs. She was always active in civic and church affairs. She taught in the Primary and M.I.A. She was a Relief Society visiting teacher for many years and sang with the Singing Mothers for several years under the direction of Elmo Jensen. While Sadie Whiting was Relief Society president in Mapleton Ward, she and Senate Mendenhall were her counselors. While the children were growing up they had a phonograph and had many good recordings of mostly classical music, so all the family developed a love for music. Each child had the opportunity to play a musical instrument, some of them playing clarinet or flute in the school band. Most of them studied piano and voice and they all have a deep appreciation for music. For several years before her death on April 18, 1959, Ella was in ill health. She died at the age of 69. In 1976 all eight of her children are still living: Lenore J. Bills, Donald Snow Johnson, Verl Elmer Johnson, Edda Frances J. Heaton, Louise J. Hanson, Ralph Aaron Johnson, Welburn “K” Johnson, and Merilyn J. Tuttle. She has 30 grandchildren and 51 great grandchildren.

Life timeline of Luella Johnson (Snow)

Luella Johnson (Snow) was born on 10 Sep 1890
Luella Johnson (Snow) was 13 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.
Luella Johnson (Snow) was 27 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Luella Johnson (Snow) was 39 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
Luella Johnson (Snow) was 40 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
Luella Johnson (Snow) was 51 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany invades the Soviet Union in Operation Barbarossa. Nazi Germany is the common English name for Germany between 1933 and 1945, when Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party (NSDAP) controlled the country through a dictatorship. Under Hitler's rule, Germany was transformed into a totalitarian state that controlled nearly all aspects of life via the Gleichschaltung legal process. The official name of the state was Deutsches Reich until 1943 and Großdeutsches Reich from 1943 to 1945. Nazi Germany is also known as the Third Reich, from German Drittes Reich, meaning "Third Realm" or "Third Empire", the first two being the Holy Roman Empire and the German Empire. The Nazi regime ended after the Allied Powers defeated Germany in May 1945, ending World War II in Europe.
Luella Johnson (Snow) died on 18 Apr 1959 at the age of 68
