Lyman and Norma Together Forever\n\nNorma Vivian Giles Nielsen passed away, suddenly and unexpectedly, from Pulmonary Fibrosis on Thursday July 10, 2014. She was born in Murray, Utah on January 7, 1937 to Forest and Vivian Myers Giles, the fourth of six children. At the age of 8 her family moved to Bluffdale, Utah where she spent her youth climbing apple trees and being a tomboy.\n\nShe graduated from Jordan High School in 1955. She met her sweetheart, George Lyman Nielsen, on a blind date in 1956. They were married later that same year in the Salt Lake Temple on September 28. They moved to Pleasant Grove, Utah where they put down permanent roots. Together they were blessed with (and endured) eight children who adore their mom: Pam (Russell) Hiatt, Brad (Cathie), Roger (Sandra), Andy (Tricia), Boyd, Angie (Russ) Hiatt, Shanna (Tyran) Ormond and Ben (Brooke Douglas) and one foster son, Sam Pahona. Forty plus grandchildren and thirty plus great-grandchildren.\n\nThere is a beautiful reunion that is occurring in heaven with those who proceeded her in death. Her husband - George Lyman Nielsen, a daughter - Pam Hiatt, her parents - Forest and Vivian Giles, her in-laws - George and Louise Nielsen, two brothers - Leroy and Larry Giles, two great-grandchildren, three sister-in-laws and two daughter-in-laws. There are multitudes that grieve her passing.\n\nShe is survived by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, cousins, one sister Kathleen Silcox, two brothers Paul (Linda) Giles, Glenn Giles, and two brothers and sisters-in-law Grant (Joyce) Nielsen and Linda (Donald) Dodge and a sister-in-law Leslie Giles.\n\nShe was a grand lady and "Grandma Norma" to everyone. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and lived in the Timpanogos 3rd Ward for 58 years. She loved the people of the 3rd ward and the Timpanogos Stake and they love her. She loved and cherished the gospel, her family and this country above all else. Once you became her friend you became her family, and once you were in her family you were always in her heart. There was never anyone that she met that wasn't a friend. Her unconditional love was extended to and felt by everyone that she came in contact with. She truly had the image of Christ in her countenance and was one of His disciples here on this earth.\n\nThe family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Sires, the nurses and staff at American Fork Hospital who served her with love and kindness up to the very end. We love you mom. Always and Forever.\n\nFuneral services will be held Wednesday, July 16, 2014 at 11 am in the Timpanogos Third Ward Chapel, 425 East 500 North, Pleasant Grove with a viewing from 9:30 - 10:45 am prior to the services.
