Lana Roberts
Redmond, Utah

Lana Norman Roberts, our beloved mother, grandmother, and sister, passed away peacefully on Friday morning, May 3, 2024, surrounded by family and friends.
Lana was born in Brigham City, Utah to John Ellis and Yukon Griffin Norman on June 14, 1949. She grew up in the small farming community where she developed a profound love for the land and the people who worked it. She spent her life in dedicated service, not only to her family but to all who knew her, embodying the values of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, to which she was a devoted member.
Lana married Samuel Livingston in Escalante, Utah in 1965. Divorced. Lana later married the love of her life, Steven McKay Roberts, on February 7, 1982. They were sealed for time and all eternity in St. George Utah Temple in 1982.
For 23 years, Lana dedicated herself to managing Salina’s Maverick gas station, where she was much more than a manager; she was a friend and a morning beacon of warmth. Her coworkers deeply valued her leadership and compassion, often saying that working with her felt more like family than a job. Customers who frequented the station were always greeted by Lana’s warm smile, making it a highlight of their morning. Many came not just for the convenience but for the genuine connection and the uplifting start to their day that Lana so effortlessly provided.  
Lana was a talented painter, quilter and ceramicist. Her passion for the arts was only matched by her commitment to her family. She managed her own ceramic shop, where she brought joy and creativity to life, sharing her skills with all of her grandchildren and siblings.
Lana Roberts’s steadfast faith in the Lord was evident through her devoted service in the Church. She served with love and dedication in the Primary and as a member of the Primary presidency, nurturing the young minds in her community with gentle guidance and support. Her role as a Relief Society minister allowed her to extend her care and compassion, ministering to the needs of the women in her church and fostering a sense of unity and spiritual growth. Lana’s LDS mission took place at the Manti Utah Temple, where she worked in the clothing distribution center. There, she ensured that those attending the temple were well-prepared for their sacred experiences, handling her duties with reverence and respect. Lana’s absolute devotion to our Heavenly Father and deep convictions in the teachings of the Church, has served many, in countless ways.
Despite her physical health challenges, Lana’s spirit remained unbroken. She continued to inspire those around her with her unwavering determination to thrive, so that she may still give all to her friends and loved ones.
Lana is survived by her four loving sons: Sammy (Kathy) Livingston, Willie Livingston, Travis Livingston and Clint (Keshia) Roberts; numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren;  sisters: Linda Overall, Debbie Einman, JanaLee Colby, and Moniece Tackett; and a community of friends who were like family to her.  
Lana is proceeded in death by her parents; husband, Steven; brothers: Larry John and DeeLyn Norman; sisters: Becky Castleman and Kim Norman.
Her life was a testament to the power of faith, resilience, and unconditional love. A legacy that will live on through the many lives she touched.
The family expresses deep gratitude for the outpouring of love and support during this time and invites those who knew Lana to attend a celebration of her life on Saturday, May 11, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. in the Redmond Ward Chapel, where memories will be shared and her life’s work honored.
