Nielson, June  
Jun. 13, 1923 ~ Nov. 19, 2014 The world lost a beautiful woman and a spunky soul with the passing of M June Gillett Nielson, 91, on November 19, 2014. Known for her quick wit, honesty and love for others, it's hard not to crack a smile when thinking about June, even in this time of intense sorrow. June was born June 13, 1923, to Clara and Leslie Gillett. Blessed with the ability to see the positive side of life, June's humor kept those around her a little more light-hearted than they would have been without her. June was always the "be positive, stay positive" type of lady and enjoyed watching her grandchildren's activities, traveling, camping, gardening, and above all, was very proud of her family and everything they accomplished in life. She spent her career as the Deputy Treasurer for Salt Lake County and retired in January 1986. She was President of the Salt Lake Lady Elks, raised money for many local charities and enjoyed traveling for a local singing group. June loved family gatherings and was famous for late night dances at the Gillett Family Reunions arm in arm with her twin brothers. Her extraordinary culinary talents and recipes are still being enjoyed by all today. She is survived by Valerie June (Steve) Brown, Jeff (Jody) Graham, DeAnne Thygesen, stepchildren, and many grandchildren, great grandchildren and even a great great grandchild. Memorial Service will be held Monday, November 24th at 1:30pm at the Salt Lake City Cemetery, 200 N St. In lieu of flowers please donate to Make-A-Wish. She will always leave a little sparkle wherever she goes.

Nelson, Lynn Dennis  
Lynn Dennis Nelson "Papa's gone Hunting" Lynn Dennis Nelson, our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend left us far too soon on November 12th, 2014 easing his pain. It is impossible to list all of Lynn's accomplishments. Lynn was born May 4th, 1950 to Dennis and Helen Nelson in West Valley City Utah. Lynn served with the Utah National Guard working with radar tracking systems and later earned a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Weber State University and an MBA with an emphasis in Technology Management from University of Phoenix. Lynn worked for Kennecott for over 30 years holding many positions throughout the company and ultimately retired from their business improvement division after earning the position of Six Sigma Master Black Belt. Lynn was an extremely intelligent, educated, and successful man however; Lynn's greatest accomplishments were in regard to his family. Lynn loved Football and was an avid hunter, fisherman, outdoorsman, talented musician, and singer. He loved to spend time outdoors with his family in "God's Country". He was an attentive and loving husband, an exceptional father, role model, best friend, and caring grandfather that will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Lynn leaves behind his loving wife of 38 years Trish Nelson, his very proud Son Sean Nelson (Candice), two beautiful Granddaughters, Allexis and Khylee and two siblings, Tom Nelson (Shauna), and Barbara Udy (Tom). Lynn also left behind many nieces, nephews, and friends that will deeply miss his laughter, jokes, and outgoing personality. Lynn would not want us to be sad. Because of this, a celebration of Lynn's life and accomplishments will be presented by his loving family at Totems Steakhouse, 538 S Redwood Road, Saturday, November 22, 2014 from 1:00 to 3:00. The family also wishes to extend their gratitude to Lindquist's Layton Mortuary, 1867 No. Fairfield Road. Condolences may be sent to the family at .
