Tauna Lynn Nielsen

She was born January 17th, 1957, to Don and Karla Dastrup in Fillmore, Utah. She was raised and planted deep family roots in Holden, Utah with her six brothers and two sisters. She loved being from a small town, she was involved in the community and various school groups, she was a member of 4H, and through her love of animals was a rodeo queen for two years. With a scholarship she left home to attend college at Weber State. During this time she met Grant E Nielsen, they fell in love and were sealed for time and all eternity in the Manti temple on April 21st, 1978. They together built their own family with two sons, and two daughters and later eight grandchildren. She loved being a Mother and more so a Grandma. She was happiest building memories with her family and loved ones. She loved to read, bake, garden, going overboard for the holidays and most of all going to Disneyland with her family. She believed in the magic of innocence and lived with a full heart. She survived by her husband Sexy Buns, children Summer (Jenna), Morgan (Chelsi), Alexis (Chandler), Grandchildren Kathryn, Aurora, Julia, Noah, Charlotte, Phoebe, Dakota and Keenan.
