Judy Lynn Nielson was born on the 6th of May 1951, in Provo Utah to Coral Fay Nielson.
On the 6th of December 2021 Judy peacefully left us to become one of the Angels she so dearly loved.
She graduated from Pleasant Grove High School in 1969. She lived in Pleasant Grove most of her life. She worked as a caregiver and CNA in various places like Alpine Care Center and Utah State Developmental Center. Until she was in an accident in July of 2007, at that time she found herself receiving the care she once gave from Heritage Care Center.
Judy loved spending time with her family and grandchildren. She enjoyed camping, crocheting, crafting, dancing and having coffee with friends.
Judy's heart was so big and there was so much room in it for not only her family, but also for anyone who chose to become her family. Nearly all of her children's friends didn't even know her name, she was simply mom. She was the first to help anyone in need, her kindness and generosity was far reaching, touching so many people.
She is Survived by her 5 children; Shane (Shilo) Penrod, Shannon (Todd) Penrod Crooks, Brian (Teasha) Penrod, Nathan (Amy) Penrod, Anthony (Lindsey) Penrod. One brother and two sisters Ernest (Kat) Nielson, Lorna (Leonard) Robertson, DiAnna (Robin) Hodges Nielson. 27 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. Judy was preceded in death by her mother Coral Nielson, a grandson Zachery Crooks, brother-in-law Leonard Robertson, and a niece Coral Rose.
