Kimberly Brown Nielsen passed away unexpectedly on December 20th, 2022 at Rocky Mountain Care & Rehab in North Logan where she was recovering from a recent back surgery.
Kim was born on July 31, 1954 to Farren Lloyd and Lorry Ryan Brown. She was the 5th of 7 children. She attended Lincoln Elementary and graduated from Sky View High School in 1972.
Kim grew up in Hyrum where her free-spirited nature and mischievous smile took her on many adventures. She spent hours in the river bottoms below Hyrum Dam, loved fishing, camping, skiing and teasing her siblings.
Kim was a hard worker and had many jobs over the years. She loved working with her hands and mechanics and some of her jobs included working at Delorean, Hesston’s & Tri-Millers just to name a few.
After graduating from high school Kim attended Utah State University for a year after which she started working for Utah State and it became her life-long career spanning over 30 years, where she began in janitorial and working her way into Facilities Maintenance where she managed the Spectrum and Stadium for many years and then moved over to the Motor Pool and managed that until her retirement in 2010.
On January 5, 1979 Kim married her true love and soulmate Terry Nielsen. After a honeymoon to Las Vegas they made their home in Hyrum. Together they raised two daughters, Lorry Ann and Andrea, who she cherished dearly.
Mom was a woman who enjoyed the fruits of her labor and sharing them with her friends and family. Kim was well known for an enormous garden where she shared her vegetables with many who always looked forward to them each year. Mom was also an excellent cook and made home made sourdough breads and fruit cakes that she gave out for Christmas gifts and all throughout the year.
Mom’s most loved hobby was playing golf which she loved and brought her so much joy. She looked forward to every week playing with the ladies at the Logan River and the Logan Golf and Country Club. She also played on Team with the ladies from the Country Club and got to travel around the state to play other courses with her teammates and friends. Mom loved the game of golf but cherished the many life-long
friendships she made along the way.
After mom and dad retired she loved going fishing and camping up Sheep Creek and spending the winters in Yuma, Arizona with dad and their dachshunds. Mom’s vibrant personality and dad’s pleasing demeanor developed many friendships in Yuma with people from all over the United States and Canada with whom she still keeps in contact with after all of these years.
Mom would do anything for anyone. She was very giving, loving, selfless and always put others before herself.
Kim had many influences in her life that helped her become the amazing woman she was and mom always spoke highly of these influential people and considered them family!!
Mom will greatly be missed by her daughters, the “boys”, her dachshunds Rascal and Patch, her grand-pup Cinnamon and many other friends and family.
She is survived by her children: Lorry Ann (Angie Frandsen), and Andrea (Butch) Johnson; Siblings: Mike (Carla) Brown, Sylvia (Steve) Anderson, Tim (Denae) Brown, Rob (Stan) Brown.
