Laura Cecile Johnson was born on May 15, 1952 in Burbank, the fourth of five children in the Johnson family. The family lived at 532 Fairmount Rd. in Burbank, and later at 1080 Walnut Ave. in Burbank, while the kids grew up. Laura attended Emerson Elementary, John Muir Junior High, and Burbank High, graduating in 1970. Laura, along with her family, was a life-long member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Laura and her husband, Richard, were married in March of 2003. Laura and her husband were residents of Simi Valley for the last several years.

Laura is survived by her husband, Clyde Richmond “Richard” Chambers, of Simi Valley; two sons, David Dutton of Gilbert, Arizona, and Nathan Dutton of Encino; one daughter, Elizabeth Dutton of Riverton, Utah; one grandson, David Dutton, Jr., Laura’s daughter-in-law, Teresa Dutton, and step-grandson, Brandon Chacon, all of Gilbert, Arizona; two older sisters, Mary Lou Johnson Anderson (BHS ‘64) of Woodland Hills, and Constance “Connie” Johnson Marrone (BHS ‘66) of Santa Clarita; one younger brother, Phillip Johnson (BHS ‘72) of Grants Pass, Oregon; three step-children, Jared Chambers of Arizona, Jason Chambers of Hawaii, and Rosana Chambers of Texas; step-granddaughter, Lola Chambers of Hawaii; and numerous nephews and nieces. Laura was predeceased by her parents, Cecil Marion Johnson and Wilma Jean Johnson, her step-mother, Irene Johnson, her older brother, Howard Johnson (BHS ‘61) on June 27, 2010, the same evening Laura was attending her BHS ‘70 40th Reunion in Burbank, and by her sister-in-law (Howard's wife), Collette Johnson. Laura was now the same age that Howard and Collette were when each passed away, all three being 66.

With thanks to Jennifer Tutterrow Todd and Charmaine Lambrecht Chastain, both BHS ‘70, for their help with information and Laura’s senior class photo.

I will miss Laura. We grew up together attending church, girls camp and being presented as debutants together. When we were in college we had many opportunities to see each other as we both attended universities operated by our church and were only a few hours apart. We remained in contact and enjoyed catching up. I will always remember her beautiful smile, genuine laugh, willingness to help, and loving care she gave to others. You will be missed Laura but the Lord needs you now.❤️
