Einan's Funeral Home

Our sweet mother, Bernice K. Nelson, passed on to join our Dad on November 1, 2012. She was born December 17, 1919, to Ezra and Vilda Kunz in Thomas, Idaho.

Bernice spent her early childhood in Nevada and then moved to Utah, where she went to school with her sister and six brothers. She graduated from Jordan High School in Sandy, Utah. In June of 1937 she married her sweetheart, Lawrence Nelson, in the Salt Lake Temple.

They had a daughter and two sons while Dad was working for Remington Arms. In 1943, Dad heard about an employment opportunity in Washington. He came to Richland and worked at the Hanford Area. Mother came with the children as soon as Dad could find a place for them to live.

They spent their working years in Richland and two more girls were added to the family. Mom worked as a cook in the schools, at Heather House nursing home, and Kadlec hospital. She also worked many years as Relief Society President and Primary President in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Upon retirement, she and Dad went on a church mission to Alabama and then moved to Sandy, Utah, to help care for her parents. They were always actively involved with many church callings and family.

Bernice is survived by her daughter Jean (Alan Miner); sons Don (Darlene) Nelson, David (Donna) Nelson; and her daughters Carol (Dean Weyand) and Kathryn (Scott Corbaley). She has 22 grandchildren, 54 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren.

The family wants to thank Hospice for their wonderful care and support.

A viewing will be held at Einan's Funeral Home on Monday, November 5, 2012, from 2:00-5:00 PM.

Funeral Services will be held in Sandy, Utah and burial will be alongside her husband in the Sandy City Cemetery.
