Nancy Elaine Macias, age 69, passed away Saturday, September 10, 2022, surrounded by her loving family.
Nancy was born in Salt Lake City, UT to Louis and Lupe Macias. She graduated from West High School in 1971 and attended the University of Utah.
Nancy’s life was dedicated to her two great loves: Her family and her banking career. She never missed an opportunity to enlighten anyone who crossed her path by sharing her intelligence or spiritual wisdom. Nancy had a natural gift where she was able to nudge you into being a kinder, more loving person. She valued humanity and offered a different perspective on any situation. This unique gift would help you realize an individual’s choices are shaped by their life experiences and hardships, and never to judge anyone too harshly, before knowing their backstory. Nancy’s gentle kindness caused her to earn the tagline given to her by her nieces and nephews “as long as you are careful.” She never wanted to use harsh words or crush their creative expressions.
During her long career at America First Credit Union, she earned a loyal following. Nancy was loved by her credit union members. So loved, they would follow her all along the Wasatch Front to whatever branch she was working at, just so they could visit with her.
Nancy’s hobbies included giving financial advice and reading. Her great love of sports was kindled in childhood sitting side by side with our dad, claiming she was keeping him company. However, you would quickly find out her love of sports was genuine; she had an awesome ability to talk sports with anyone. Nancy loved being the family historian and would frequently recall our cousin’s milestones. Her love and understanding were integral in keeping our large family, filled with amazing cousins close, long after our parents passed on.
We would like to express our gratitude to Pam Jordan, Jonni Holbrook, Mike and Georgia Maloney, and JoAnn Petty for all their help and support during Nancy’s long illness. Special thanks to nurse Deborah for the wonderful care she provided Nancy. Deborah’s proactive care plan enabled Nancy to live pain-free for as long as possible. Thank you.
Preceded in death by her parents Louis and Lupe Macias, Sister Julie Martinez, brother Joe Macias, brother-in-law Fred Martinez and niece JoAnn Martinez.
Survived by her sisters: Sherry (Fred) Martinez, Kaysville; Laurie and Maryann Macias, Sandy. Nancy’s greatest joy was spending her time with her nieces and nephews. They provided her with hours of entertainment by performing for her and creating drawings once she became too weak to leave the confines of our home.
A visitation will be held at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East Dimple Dell Rd, Sandy, UT. Monday, September 19, 2022, from 6:00-8:00 PM with a Rosary at 7:00 PM. Funeral Mass will be celebrated Tuesday, September 20, 2022, at 11:00 AM, Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, 9757 South 1700 East Sandy UT.

To Nancy's family: I had the pleasure of working with her when we were both in management at American Savings. That was LONG time ago! We reconnected when I was setting up a very small account at AFCU for a school team. By then I had married and changed my name, so it took us a minute to figure out the connection, since my name was different. It was absolutely delightful to re-kindle a relationship and see that Nancy had the same spark, commitment to customers, and genuine, all-around "nice personality" that I had known in the late 80s. She was lovely, kind, and generous of heart. My condolences to all.
We loved and admired Nancy and your wonderful parents. Nancy was a great role model of service to her family and community. We are sorry for your loss. Love and blessings to you.
