Nancy Ann Xavier Lingner Tuttle, 81, a Temple Worker at the Jordan River Temple, returned to our Father in Heaven, while being cared for by her family at her home in Draper, Utah, on May 16, 2000.
Mrs. Tuttle was born on February 12, 1919, in Nashville, Tennessee, a daughter of John Malcolm Lingner and Hortense Eunice Franklin. She married Lawrence Seifert Tuttle in the Salt Lake Latter-Day Saints Temple on May 31, 1940. Her greatest accomplishment was being a mother, raising her family, and being a wonderful wife, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
She was an accomplished genealogist, for which she dedicated much of her life for the sake of her ancestors, whom she loved dearly. She completed several name extraction missions and a Genealogy mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, for which she was a stalwart member. Mother was always submissive and humble to the Lord's will. Everyone who met her loved her.
Mrs. Tuttle is survived by her husband of nearly 60 years, Lawrence; her six children, Nancy L. (the late Terrance) Gallagher of West Jordan, Utah, Lawrence L. Tuttle of Arizona, Steven L. (Cheryl) Tuttle of Woodland, Washington, James L. (Nancy) Tuttle of Overton, New York, Dean L. (Gaye) Tuttle of Sandy, Utah, and Renae L. (Jimmy) Peterson of Midvale, Utah; her 41 grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren; and by her sister, Alice (DeOrr) Sorensen of West Valley, Utah. She is preceded in death by her parents, John Malcolm Lingner and Hortense Eunice Franklin; her brothers, John and Hilary; and her grandson, Jared Gallagher.
