  • Nancy Christensen Limburg, wife, mother, and neonatal nurse practitioner extraordinaire returned to her Heavenly and earthly Parents August 27th after a long and valiant battle with hereditary breast cancer. She was 44 years old and passed peacefully in her new home in Salt Lake City, UT. Nancy was born December 22nd 1975 in Provo Utah to Archie Peter Christensen and Shirley Jorgensen Christensen. Never was a child more loved than Nancy – especially by her mom. She married her high school sweetheart Paul Dennis Limburg on December 19th, 1998 in the Manti Utah Temple. To know Nancy was to love her and many, many people did. Nancy loved them back, but most of her love went to her family and they felt it. They were everything to her. She loved her kids with the same passion that she was loved as a child.

    She was a lady of many interests, but running, biking, and skiing were her favorites and she was dedicated to them. She developed many friendships and her own self through these mediums.

    The piano and organ were very important to her and she made sure to pass that on to her children. She spent many hours helping them and instilling in them the importance of the piano. She always played either the piano or organ at church and with a lot of spunk. She was quick to volunteer her many talents at the schools and her ward – even when she was not feeling well.

    She loved to travel and was able to visit many countries, cities, and historical sites around the globe.

    Nancy loved being a neonatal nurse practitioner in the NICU. She loved the babies, their parents, her coworkers, and the work itself. Nancy found it to be very rewarding, fulfilling and a blessing to her. Like everything else in her life, she put all of her energy and passion into her work.

    With a wit and sense of humor second to none, she had a contagious laugh, and loved having a good time. She had a zest for life and made sure to always make the most of it. This was especially true after her first cancer diagnosis. She made sure those who were with her lived life to the fullest too. She loved telling stories, especially if they were funny or a little on the mischievous side. She kept many entertained with her wacky or uncomfortable stories old and new.

    Nancy had a knack of developing deep relationships with those close to her. She was a great friend and made a huge impact on a lot of people. Nancy was classy and elegant and would light up a room. Many looked up to her literally and to her vibrant personality, independent spirit, and strength. She was an inspiration to many. She was warm, compassionate, and an advocate. She was the type of person that by having known her, makes you want to be a better yourself.

    She is survived by her husband Paul Dennis Limburg; her children Emily Caroline Limburg (20), Jacob Benjamin Limburg (17), Samuel Paul Limburg (13), and Zachary Joseph Limburg (9); her siblings Kathy Davidson (Richard), Kevin Christensen (Marlene), Lester Christensen, Eldon Christensen (Barbara) and Ken Christensen (Sarena).

    She is preceded in death by her Mother Shirley Jorgensen Christensen and Father Archie Peter Christensen.

    I am a friend of Suzanne’s and I’m so sorry for what this sweet family member had to go through and that you lost her at such a young age. I can’t even imagine the heart ache. Just know that my thoughts are with you.

    Sorry for your loss Paul. I didn't know about your wife's health problems. As you may or may not know, our Mom died from cancer, after years of suffering. You can never be prepared for losing a loved one, even though you know of it's inevitably. You can take comfort in the knowledge that you will be with her again. That is another inevitably, a joyful one.
    May you feel of our Father's love at this time.
    Uncle George

    I am so deeply sorry for your loss. The word loss just feels so insufficient. There just are no words. I am here for you, in whatever way you need, at whatever time. Love and prayers to you and the kids.

    Sorry, Paul and all the family. That's really tough. I liked hearing more about her. Such a good description of her personality, life, and relationships with others. Thanks for sharing that. She's a beautiful woman.

    I'm so sorry to hear about Nancy's death, I never heard.
    I have lost 2 partners that pain never goes away, but it does get easier as you know at this point in time. I'm sorry for your children to lose their mother so soon. My heart goes out to you all.
