Our mother, grandmother, and sister, Nellie was reunited with her eternal sweetheart, Raymond, on Friday, February 6, 1998. She will be greatly missed by all of us, but we realize she was granted her wish to be with our dad.
She entered this earth life on May 28, 1921 in Orem (Edgemont), Utah to James William and Agnes Levenia Gibson Price. She spent her early life in Daniel, Wasatch County, Utah. She married Raymond M. North on November 17, 1939, in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

She is also survived by three sisters, Glenna (Glade) Wilson, and Rita Wilson both of Midway; Darlene (Calvin) North, St. George. She is preceded in death by her brother, John Edward Price.
Mom loved people and doing things for them. She would always talk to people she met even if she did not know them. Her life was filled with service to her family, her community and her church. She was always at any family gathering from blessings of children to camping trips. She served her community by having a beautiful yard. She loved to plant flowers for everyone in Midway to enjoy. She loved Swiss Days and always made it part of the celebration to serve in a booth.
Her church service included a Provo Temple worker, presidency of both Primary and Relief Society, MIA and Sunday School teacher, visiting teacher and dance director. She was a member of the Wasatch County Chapter of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. She was employed by Wasatch County School District for 16 years in the school lunch program at the North School and Midway Elementary. She had various other jobs in Wasatch County during her life.
Mother, we all love and miss you very much, but know the righteous desires of your heart were granted and there is a wonderful reunion going on in the Heavens. Please save a place for us in Heaven and may God be with you until we meet again. Love your kids.
