Our beloved Mother Nancy G. Fathers Christensen, 82, returned home to her Heavenly Father on Tuesday October 18, 2022.
Nancy was born in Australia, on January 29, 1940. She joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in 1960 . She and her missionary companion were the first lady missionaries to serve in the Alaska/Canadian mission from 1961-1963.

Bruce and Nancy retired to Yucaipa, California to be with their son and family in 2008 where they served in the Redlands Temple for three years. After her husband passed in 2013 and with her health starting to decline, she moved to Lehi Utah to be with her daughter and family in 2017.
