Dr. Lenore Ivanna Rasmussen Robbins died peacefully at home on June 05, 2022, surrounded by family and friends. Lenore was raised on a farm in Mink Creek, Idaho. She graduated from Preston High School in 1958. She was married to Daniel McMullin Johnson (1962-79) and Charles Burtis Robbins (1992-2022). She lived and worked in Idaho, Utah (Salt Lake City, Provo, Logan, Smithfield, Dugway, Cedar City, St. George, Centerville), Washington, Alaska, and Wyoming.

Lenore immersed herself in service to family, friends, and neighbors. She found joy in life and helped others do the same.

She served in the Western Canada Mission (1961-62); in the Anchorage Alaska Mission (2006-07) with her husband; and in several service missions.

Lenore valued education. While raising four children and working full-time to support her family, she earned a Bachelors degree from Utah State University, a Masters degree from Brigham Young University, and a Doctorate from Utah State University. Lenore built a successful career operating small businesses in Alaska, teaching high school in Wyoming and Utah, and serving as a university professor and department chair in Utah.
