August 23, 1952—February 14, 2018
Nancy Trevino, 65, died on Wednesday, February 14, 2018, in Holladay, Utah, after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s Disease. She was born August 23, 1952, to John and Helen Trevino in Rupert, Idaho, after her twin sister Norma. She was the fifth of seven children.
Nancy was a lover of romance and fun. She had an amazing collection of sappy love songs and romance movies. She was always ready for a party, shopping, going to a movie, or dinner as long as the people she loved were with her. She went to antique shows and U of U gymnastics meets with her sister-in-law, Karen, she shopped with her daughter, sisters and nieces, she always made sure her grandkids went to the most recent Disney movies, and loved to go to dinner with friends and family. She was a brilliant gift-giver and spoiler of all she loved. She was the best friend, mentor, aunt, sister, daughter, mother, and grandmother anyone could ask for. She has been missed by many in the last years of her life as she battled with her disease. We will miss and love her forever! Goian bego Amatxu. Maite zaitugu.
Nancy is survived by her daughter, Christina; son-in-law, Dominic; and her grandchildren, Elaia and Xanti. She is survived by her sisters, Norma (Victor) Claridge and Donna (Layne) Harper; as well as brothers, Richard, Allen (Diane), and John (Debbi) Trevino; and sister-in-law, Tori Trevino. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.
