Chelta Lohree Nielsen

1931 ~ 2022

Lohree Anderson Nielsen, 91, of Salt Lake passed away peacefully in her home November 19th 2022.

She was born in Salt Lake City to her parents Dee and Chelta Anderson.

In 1951 she married Richard Nielsen, who preceded her in death in January 2016. They met while she was attending the University of Utah. She joined the Lamba Delta Sigma sorority. Lohree made many friends and enjoyed the activities.

Lohree was active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She had many callings in which she used her talents, gifts of goodness and kindness to make others feel comfortable and loved. Her callings were from Relief Society President to Young Woman's President and everything in between. One of her favorite callings was the Relief Society Greeter.

She loved the Book of Mormon and read the child's version to her kids at bedtime. In her later years she kept this habit of reading her scriptures.

Lohree loved to talk to people and was very good at striking up a conversation. Many loved her. Her kindness was huge and she had a generous nature.

Her sense of humor kept her going through hard times. She loved board games and card games like Uno. Even when she lost she would just laugh. Games were together time and not to be taken too seriously.

Lohree always had time to listen to her children, to discuss their problems and concerns.

Lohree was always doing service to others. She would take ladies older than her to church. She did this for many years, until she had to quit driving herself.

Lohree was always ready to go on a trip or an adventure. She visited many places during her life including Egypt, China, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Scandinavia, Russia, Israel, Germany, Austria and England.

A special thanks to Canyon Hospice for their loving and wonderful care. Also Sela's team at One Love Private Home Care, who were there for Lohree's dedicated care. They served Lohree with love.

She is survived by her 3 daughters Judy Snyder, Jean Richardson (Bruce), Janice Pearson (Jeff), 13 grandchildren and 22 great grandchildren. We love and miss you mom.
