The love of Nancy and Robert has been an example to many and an inspiration to their children. Nancy was gifted with a generous and giving spirit, always putting the needs of her husband, children, grandchildren and friends ahead of her own. Nancy had a profound love of the gospel and accepted many church callings especially loving the callings that involved music or choir. She loved to sing and play the piano and shared her love for music with all of us. Nancy loved her pets and loved caring for them, she had many over the years, but her favorite was her "first baby Sugar Plum." Nancy was a dedicated and proud fan of the Utah Jazz and rarely missed a game. Nancy worked for the State of Utah in the Driver's License Division where she had many close friends and was loved by all.

Nancy was preceded in death by her father Leon R. Arnesen, sister Shirley Arnesen and her 'adopted' daughter Angelica. Survived by her husband of 37 years Robert H.
