Our sweet nana, grandma and mother, Thelma "Tommie" Toone Nelson, 86, died January 21, 1994 in Sandy.

Tommie was born June 7, l907 in Croydan, Morgan County, Utah to John Wilford and Harriet Bertha Grover Toone. She married Leo Glen Roberts Nelson on April 4, l928 in Croydan. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. He preceded her in death in 1986.

Tommie was a go-getter and spent years involved in many civic and community events. She was a task force member on the Salt Lake County Council on Aging. Active in local PTA, member of the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, Director of Civil Defense for the Womens Auxillary in the Draper area, President of the Garden Club. She was instrumental in establishment of the Senior Citizen organization in Draper, where she and Glen lived for many years. She was a member of the LDS Church and served in numerous capacities in the Primary and the Young Womens organizations. Tommie loved music and performed for many years in singing groups throughout the valley. She loved poetry, reading, crocheting and involvement with people. She was happiest with her family around her, enjoying the sweet presence of her many grand and great grandchildren. She was vivacious and determined with a keen and inquiring mind.
