Beth passed away peacefully on October 18, 2019 at her home after a courageous fight with health issues for most of her adult life.

Beth was born on March 14, 1975 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Dennis C. and Georgiana Nelson.  She graduated from Olympus High School then went to the University of Utah and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology.

Beth was active in many sports.  She enjoyed soccer, river running, and was an avid hiker, taking her two dogs up the canyon often. She also belonged to a hiking club. She loved scrap booking and many friends received hand made cards that she had made for them. Beth had many passions that involved the outdoors, animals and helping other people. She had a large heart and was always giving what time and efforts she could to help those in need, including many hours watching nieces and nephews.

Beth is survived by her parents, one sister: Debra D. Gowans (Phil), four brothers: Michael, Charles, David (Christina), and Brent (Samantha). All reside in Salt Lake County, Utah.

Friends and family are invited to visit Wednesday, October 23 from 6:00-8:00 pm at Larkin Mortuary, 260 East South Temple Dr. Salt Lake City, Utah.

Funeral Service will be held Thursday, October 24 at 11:00 am and a viewing will be held prior to the services from 10:00-10:45 am, at Mountain View 3rd Ward 1889 South 1700 East, Salt Lake City, Utah.

In lieu of flowers please make donations to your local dog shelter.
