Lucille Nelson Anderson, age 93, answered her “Call” on October 13, 2013, in Bountiful, from causes incident to age. She was welcomed by her eternal companion, Claude H. Anderson, whom she married Sept. 11, 1941 in the Salt Lake Temple. He died 22 Jan. 1996. Born Aug. 13, 1920 to James Alfred Nelson and Clara L. Folsom in Salt Lake City.
An active member of the LDS Church, she served in many leadership and teaching positions. She also served with her husband as an Ordinance Worker in the Salt Lake Temple. She enjoyed drama, music, genealogy, and writing poetry and histories. She was grateful for her life, her faith, her testimony and for the goodness for the Lord, and also for the many precious moments that her choice, loving family and many special friends helped her enjoy. She believed in being “honest, true, chase, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men”…if there were anything virtuous, lovely or of good report or praiseworthy, she sought to be an example of these things.
Preceded in death by her husband, an infant son (Donald), her parents, sisters, Eloise Nelson and Edna Weymouth, and brother, James Dee Nelson.
She is dearly loved and will be greatly missed by her children: Stephen (Connie) and Carol (Thomas) Tolman, Bountiful; Marilyn (David) Thurgood, Lindon, Utah, and Kenneth (Anne) of Valley Center, CA; 25 grandchildren and 69 great-grandchildren. Also two brothers, Lenzi (Shirley) Nelson, Roy, , and Richard F. Nelson, Exeter, CA.
