Alison Landeen passed away in her home in Draper, Utah on August 1st, 2022, after a long battle with cancer. She was 57 years old.
Born on October 28, 1964, in Draper, Utah, Alison grew up as the youngest daughter of Marjorie Evelyn and Glenn Richard (Dick) Landeen. With seven older siblings—six of which were brothers—Alison had an active childhood.
She played volleyball for Alta High School where her varsity team reached the semi-finals in the state tournament. Her love of the sport led to her enthusiasm for BYU volleyball, both Mens and Womens which she followed closely with several of her siblings.
Alison graduated from Utah Valley State College with a degree in business. She worked in the billing department of Mountain Land Rehabilitation for over twenty-five years, and fondly spoke of the friendships she made with her coworkers who offered support during her long illness.
Alison always had a strong testimony of the restored gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. From 1985-87, she served as a missionary in Vancouver, Canada. She went on to serve in many church callings including Young Women’s President, single adult representative, and nursery leader. She was also a skilled flutist and enjoyed playing her flute for a variety of church functions for many years.
An avid traveler, Alison visited many countries around the world. She often traveled with her parents and siblings, creating fond memories for all those who accompanied her. Alison also enjoyed watching sporting events, cooking shows, Korean TV and Jeopardy.
Alison did not marry but is a beloved aunt to all her nieces and nephews who fondly nicknamed her “Owl-ison.” She spent many years taking each one of them to Disney World when they were teenagers. These are treasured memories for the entire family.
She is survived by her siblings Jeff (Brenda), Jan Johnson, Mark (Ellen), Scott (Diann), Steve (Arlynne), Mike (Paula), and Todd (Andrea), along with thirty-four nieces and nephews, and numerous grand nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents, Marj and Dick, brother-in-law Brad Johnson, and nephew Travis Landeen.
