Her family’s roots run deep inside the Mormon church having ancestors who went west with the pioneers and settled the town in Utah where she was born. Genealogy has always been very important to Nelson. She enjoys paper crafts, sewing and genealogy. The Nelsons raised three sons in Greenville, and they have four granddaughters.
