Luana Winward Hartley September 1, 1975-November 9, 2022


Luana Winward Hartley, age 47 Our beautiful mom, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend returned home to her Father-in-Heaven on Wednesday, November 9, 2022.


Luana was born on Labor Day, September 1, 1975, in Ogden, Utah to Dick and Pauline Winward. She was the third of five girls.


Luana lived her life devoted to the Lord, she was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She loved to immerse herself in scriptures and words of the prophets. She shared her father’s gift of being able to memorize and recite doctrine. She strived to live as Jesus did by loving and serving all she came in contact with. She especially loved Elder Jeffery R. Holland. His words of love, hope, and counsel helped her through many hard times in her life.


On August 6, 1996, she married Ridge Hartley in the Salt Lake Temple. Together they raised three beautiful children. She was heartbroken to miscarry a baby and looked forward to the day they would be reunited. Luana loved her children more than anything in the world. She was a fun and loving mother who would do anything to put a smile on her kids’ faces.


Luana had a brilliant mind. She received an early college recognition award as well as being nominated for a Sterling Crest Scholar of the Year award. She graduated from Weber State University as a Registered Nurse. Her favorite job was working with the babies in the NICU at McKay-Dee Hospital.


She was very creative. Luana had exquisite taste, a talent for decorating, and a love for fashion. She worked at the White House Black Market where she was their top overall seller. She inherited her Grandma Reta’s talent for cooking. One of her most popular dishes was her lemon chicken. Her food was presented beautifully; her dishes were a work of art.


Luana was the life of the party. Whenever she hosted a party, everything was done over the top, including popcorn, cotton candy and shaved ice machines. She loved to play games and was very competitive. She could not handle losing to her son, Hunter, so she would often pay people to play against him and try to beat him.


She loved to travel, usually to warm, tropical locations, including Coronado and Hawaii. Every year they made a special trip to McCall Idaho for her daughter, McCall’s, birthday. Luana and McCall loved shopping, getting mani-pedis, and doing all the fun girly, girl things of life.


We know she truly loved her kids because the one thing she dreaded growing up was fishing with her dad. Fishing is one of her sons, Jerren’s, favorite activities and she would happily arrange fishing trips with Jerren just to spend time with him.


Luana was preceded in death by her father, Richard B Winward. She is survived by her children: Hunter, Jerren, and Reta McCall, her loving mother, Pauline Winward, her siblings: Debbie (Ken) Sherman, Jan (Kyle) Israelsen, Cindy (Kevin) Hugie, and Crystal Perry. As well as many nephews and nieces who love her dearly.

Funeral services will be held in her honor at 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 19, 2022, at the Layton North Stake Center, 1954 E. Antelope Dr., Layton, Utah. A viewing will be held Friday, November 18 from 6:00-8:00 PM at Lindquist Memorial Park in Layton 1867 N. Fairfield Road and Saturday from 9:30-10:30 AM prior to a service at the church.


Interment at Lindquist Memorial Park in Layton 1867 N. Fairfield Road.


Luana was touched by Doug Wright’s sendoff message, and we want to pass along a challenge in her honor: “Tonight when you go home, make sure you hug the people you love.”
