Nathalia Elizabeth Cahoon Wett-stein (Sal), age 80, passed away peacefully in Salt Lake City, Utah, January 24, 2002, of causes incident to age.

Sal was born March 2, 1921, in Gannett, ID to Viola Pernell Gyllenskog and George 'E' Ca-hoon. She grew up in Salt Lake City, and grad-uated from Gra-nite High School in 1937. She married her sweetheart, Dave Allen Wettstein, in Denver, CO June 20, 1942. Their marriage was solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple in 1943.

Being an Air Force family, Dave and Sal moved all over the country for the first 30 years of their marriage. Some of these places included Colorado, Okinawa, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Alabama, France, and Virginia. They retired and came 'home' to Salt Lake City in 1971.

Sal was a very active and faithful member of the LDS Church serving as Relief Society president twice, in the stake Relief Society presidency, as Primary president and any other calling that was extended to her. Her service in the church was of primary importance to her.
