Our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, Marilyn Low Nielsen passed away on March 11, 2018. Marilyn was born to Clinton and Roma Low and raised in Smithfield, Utah. She graduated from North Cache High School where she was very involved in school activities. It was here she fell in love with Dale Nielsen, a dashing underclassman. They were married in 1954 in the Salt Lake Temple. This love affair is one for the eternities. Three children were born to this union. Lezlie Zollinger (Richard), Huntsville, UT, Terri Cartwright (Dennis), Kemmerer, WY, and Cameron Nielsen (Amy, deceased), Smithfield, UT. Marilyn worked for Bob and Ed Budge at the Smithfield Clinic for 40 years as the office manager but was also known to be a fill-in lab and x-ray tech, nurse, pharmacist and right-hand help to Doctor’s Bob and Ed. Following her work, at the clinic, she was employed by Cache County in the survey/building department. Marilyn was an active member of the Church of Latter-Day Saints where she loved serving as Relief Society and Young Women’s President, choir director and in many other capacities. She was a superb cook and loved to cook and bake for her family, especially her dad. She loved her hometown of Smithfield and devoted many years to organizing the Health Days celebration. She was proud of her Low and Pilkington heritage and the role they played in the early days of Smithfield and passed along many stories to her posterity. Marilyn is survived by her husband, Dale, their 3 children, 12 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and her brothers, Rodney and Randy Low. She is preceded in death by her parents, a brother Ted and a daughter-in-law Amy. A viewing will be held at Nelson Funeral Home in Smithfield on Thursday evening, March 15, 2018, from 6-8 pm.
