1959 ~ 2003
PANGUITCH, UT <! > - On September 6, 2003 our loving wife, mother, aunt, sister, daughter and friend returned to her Father in Heaven. Collette Nay was a special person and will be missed by everyone she knew.
She was born Feb 25, 1959 to Howard V. and Mamie Dodds Hatch, Panguitch. Collette loved life and the four brothers with whom she was reared. She graduated from Panguitch High School, 1977, attended Dixie College and Utah Valley State College, where she obtained an associate's degree in business, and escrow license.
She married her high school sweetheart, Martin J. Nay, June 21, 1980 in the St. George LDS Temple and they have made their home in Panguitch ever since. Martin and Collette have four children who enjoyed more fun times with their mother in 20 years than most in a lifetime. The family worked hard and played hard, too. A favorite family outing was Lake Powell and water skiing. She loved to travel and enjoyed shopping for the ones she loved so much. Collette always thought of others. Her nieces and nephews will tell you that she never forgot a birthday! Collette always brought out the best in everyone she knew.
Collette was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in every organization in the church, including Primary president, Relief Society president, stake Young Women's presidency, and most recently, nursery leader. She was busy with civic duties as well, including chairman of the Panguitch Quilt Walk Festival, and Business and Professional Women's Organization, as well as many other community service activities. For the past 20 years, Collette ran Security Title Company for her brother, Tom.
She leaves behind her husband, Martin J. Nay; children, Ashlee, Britt-ney, Courtney, Cole (Tug) Nay; moth-er, Mamie D. Hatch; and brothers, Tom (Kay) Hatch, Ron (Julie) Hatch, Randy (Debbie) Hatch, Paul (Shawna) Hatch, all of Panguitch. She was preceded in death by her father, Howard V. Hatch, and brother, Howard Dennis Hatch.
