Luana Marie Cowan

May 6, 1927 — May 14, 2024

Luana Marie Cowan passed away peacefully on May 14, 2024 at the age of 97. She was born on May 6, 1927 in Ephraim, Utah, to Harvey A. Thompson and Ada Fredonia Sorenson, the second of five children. She married Leland W. Kopcho on May 4, 1947, later divorced.  Luana married Robert Charles Cowan on June 17, 1954, marriage later solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple on October 20, 1959.

Luana is survived by her siblings; Jay Thompson and Charlotte Huntsman; children; Karalee Taylor, Kevin R. Cowan (Sue), and Julie L. Yeanoplos (Kevin); 21 grandchildren, 51 great-grandchildren, and 9 great-great-grandchildren.

Luana is preceded in death by her parents; husband; two siblings: Shefford H. Thompson and Arlene Rose Bradley; two daughters: Paula Marie Kopcho and Sharlene Sylvia Cook; two sons-in-law: Kevin Lee Taylor and Romell Richard Cook; two granddaughters: Michelle Marie Jackson and Holli Kae Birch.

Luana was a dedicated and faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who loved her Savior and being in his service.  She served in many callings, including sunday school teacher, primary teacher, young women adviser, primary presidency, and as Ward and Stake Relief Society president. She cherished the 11 years she served as an ordinance worker in the Salt Lake Temple.

Luana so loved her family and spending time with them was her happy place.  She will be remembered for being an exemplary wife, mother, and grandmother. She enjoyed cooking, sewing, and gardening. She was famous for the delectable raspberry jam she made from her prized garden and which she generously shared with many as a gift or a thank-you.

The family is grateful to all the wonderful staff members at Covington Senior Living and Atlas Hospice Care for their tender care and love for our sweet momma. She loved them and called them her "sweet angels."
