Nellie Irene Garrison Page passed away on Friday, September 18, 2020 in Salt Lake City, Utah at the age of 79. She was born November 8, 1940 in Williamsport, Pennsylvania to Warren and Violet Zerby Garrison.
Nellie was a proud member of the LDS church. She was a wonderful grandmother, mother, sister and friend. She always made everyone laugh around her, whether she was running people over with her electric scooter or telling people what to do. Born and raised in Pennsylvania and being a convert to the church, she wanted to come out to the great state of Utah where she brought all 5 of us kids on a bus and traveled across the country to provide us with a better life. She always had such a positive outlook on life.
Nellie would do anything she could for anybody. If she only had one dollar to her name, and if you needed it, she would give it to you. Luckily, she had a lot of friends that would do the same for her.
I know that she is still with us. Our only wish is that we could get one more call at 7am just to talk about her day. Or, one more conversation about how much she missed seeing everyone. She would always say that no matter how old her kids got, she will never stop worrying about them. The world changes from year to year, our lives from day to day but the love and memory of you, shall never pass away.
“Mothers hold their children’s hands for a while, but their hearts forever”
“Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear”
She is survived by her 5 kids, 14 grandkids, 4 great-grandkids. She is preceded in death by her parents and her brother.
Graveside services will be held beginning at Noon on Tuesday, September 29, 2020 at Larkin Sunset Gardens Cemetery in Sandy, Utah.
