  • Notes 
    • She was born August 18, 1924 in Palmyra, Utah to Leo M. and Bertha Jex Banks. She married Robert Louis Johnston on November 9, 1955 in Palmyra, Utah. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Las Vegas LDS Temple on November 6, 2004. Robert died July 7, 2003.

      Reva graduated from Spanish Fork High School. She served an LDS mission in the Western States Mission.

      She was a loving and supportive wife as she moved with her husband as his employment required. They lived in Coalville, Utah, Fort Collins, Colorado, Three Forks, Montana, and Apple Valley, California. They retired to Montana until health reasons required them to live in a warmer climate, which took them to Lake Havasu City, Arizona to enjoy life in the desert.

      She loved to write, knit, and crochet. She won awards for her tremendous bread recipes while in Colorado. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in the Stake Relief Society Presidency in Fort Collins, Colorado, and as Relief Society President in Three Forks, Montana, as well as other various callings.

      Reva is survived by her two sons: Don Robert (Stefanie) Johnston of Delano, California and Blair Johnston of Plymouth, Massachusetts; four grandchildren: Lonie, Cassie, Sean, Cody; and three brothers: Robert Banks and George Banks, both of Palmyra, Utah, and Reed Banks of Manteca, California.

      She was preceded in death by her husband; brother, Lee Banks; and two sisters, Ethel Galt and Shirley Merrill.
