In the fall of 1974 with the arrival of her first child she was blessed to be able to stay at home and raise a family. She loved animals and was always involved in the family farm. She always had a garden and enjoyed canning and preserving food. Sustainability and self-reliance were always important to her. When her children were all in school, she started A Better Way a bulk home storage food business. She also loved to quilt, sew, and crochet. You would often find her on Thursdays at the Smithfield Livestock Auction crocheting and bidding on cattle. She loved making quilts, Christmas stockings, baby blankets, dish towels, and many other items and giving them away. She spent a lot of her time doing family history work and testing programs for the church. She prepared thousands of names and submitted them for temple work. In her later years she took a part time job at the United States Post Office to support her hobbies and dote on her grandchildren. She is survived by her husband Roger LaMar Nelson of Trenton, Utah; a brother, Max (Karen) Spackman; two sons and two daughters, Julie Nelson of Trenton, Utah; John (Jessie) Nelson of Trenton, Utah; Katie (Klade) Oleson of Blackfoot, Idaho; Kelly (Jackie) Nelson of Clarkston, Utah; and 11 grandchildren.
