Our beloved Mom, Grandma and GiGi, Nancy Joyce Fuller, returned to her Heavenly Home on Monday September 27, 2021. Nancy was the first of 12 children born to Les and Reva Olson. She spent her happy childhood in East Millcreek with her 5 sisters and 6 brothers. Nancy graduated from Granite High School in Salt Lake City, Utah and married Donald Nelson Arbon in 1953. They eventually settled in Camarillo, California and together had 4 beautiful children: Donald Olson Arbon (Kathy), Debbie Sue Arbon, David Olson Arbon (Sue) and Diane Morgan (Dave). Nancy owned and operated a successful interior design business, Decorating Center of Camarillo, where her eye for beauty and sense of style shone through. Don and Nancy later divorced, and she then married Alton William “Bill” Fuller in 1977 and they became a blended family with Bill’s 4 children. Together they have a daughter Darci Kae (Craig) Cordero. Later, Nancy and Bill left sunny southern California and settled in both Sandy and Riverton Utah. Nancy returned to work at the family business, Les Olson Company, until retirement. In her later years, she lived at Sagewood in Daybreak where she made many dear friends.
Nancy’s life touched so many people. She was a force for good and a mentor to everyone; but in the end her greatest joy and happiness was her family. She found purpose and fulfillment in serving all those around her. Nancy’s ability to light up a room and make everyone feel important will be missed by all who knew her! Her faith and testimony of Jesus Christ flows through her 5 children, 17 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren (for now), to carry on her legacy of service and love.
A viewing will be held on Monday, October 4, 2021 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM at the LDS Church building, 13680 South 5562 West Herriman, Utah. Funeral services will be held at the same location on Tuesday, October 5, 2021 at 11:00 AM with a viewing preceding the service from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM. Interment will follow at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Bluffdale.

Our sincere condolences to Nancy and her wonderful family. She was one of the kindest persons ever to live on the Earth. She always had a positive word of encouragement to share and uplift all that she met. May we emulate her good example.
When Nancy first came to Sagewood I had several people ask me if she was my sister. Those here at Sagewood would get us
mixed up quite a bit. I was always proud when people couldn’t tell us apart. It was so special to know Nancy’s daughter and son-in-law had my husband as a teacher in history at Alta high school. She is a great lady and I will miss her so much.
I am sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. Although it’s been years since I have seen your family, in our youth we spent much time together. Your mom was, indeed, always a ray of sunshine. I am blessed to have known her and cherish the memories I shared with you and your family there on Avocado in Camarillo. What good times we had. Thoughts and Blessings for you and your family.
We are so sad to hear of Nancy’s passing. Our mom lives on the same floor at Sagewood and we would see Nancy from time to time. She always smiled and greeted us. She made my mom feel very welcomed when she first moved in. Nancy was a special soul and will be missed. Please accept our sincere condolences for your loss.
