LaWanna Webb Steenblik Hubbard passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by family and loved ones, on March 31, 2018. She was born to Vern Burnice Webb and Honore Elizabeth Bowen on Feb. 29, 1940, in Midvale. She grew up humbly in Midvale and graduated from the original Jordan High School, in 1958 — always proud to be a “Beetdigger.”
When she was four or five she heard Primary music coming from a local LDS Church ward house and from that moment on she felt it was the right place for her to be. Her father, unfortunately, said she had to wait until she was 16 to be baptized a member, but it only took the Primary songs to affirm her testimony. As soon as she was able, she was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in numerous church callings throughout her life from Cub Scouts and Young Women’s to Relief Society.
LaWanna learned a love of the outdoors from her parents, spending their family vacations in the Uintahs since she was “dragging a diaper down the path,” and preferred the mountains over a luxury hotel. She spent many days in the Uintah Mountains, or on Bear Lake, Lake Powell, and Flaming Gorge boating and fishing with family. Her love of the outdoors never waivered and she was always amazed at the beauty our Heavenly Father created for us to enjoy.
She married Frederik Holbrook Steenblik on Dec. 2, 1960, in an LDS Church ward house in Midvale, Utah. They moved to the Rose Park neighborhood, in Salt Lake City, and began their family. After a few years, they moved to the area between North Salt Lake and Bountiful where she was able to raise her family and began to enjoy an extended family.
She married Andy Hubbard on June 14, 1997 in Kaysville. They moved West to Syracuse where she missed the mountains, then east to Layton where she was able enjoy the mountain splendor and gather her family together for fun game nights and holidays.
