Nancy Elizabeth (Miner) Mahan

Nancy Elizabeth (Miner) Mahan, age 84, of Morgan, Utah, passed away in her home after a brief illness on Wednesday, May 8, 2024.

Nancy was born Feb. 14, 1940, in Rome, NY—a Valentine baby. Nancy was the first daughter and the third of nine children born to Wilfred A. Miner and Isabelle D. (Lenaghen) Miner. 

Nancy graduated from St. Aloysius Academy (Rome, NY) in 1958. She had been married to Bernie Mahan, also of Rome. She and Bernie had two sons, Bernard Francis and Kenneth William. 

Nancy was strong-willed and decisive but was also a caring and compassionate “giver”. One of her many gifts was her ability to make meaningful connections with anyone who crossed her path. Nancy loved outdoor adventures and spontaneous road trips with family and friends. Her most enjoyable time while living in Utah was spent in the mountains. She would have been a great “pioneer woman”, and remarked many times she felt as if she was born in the wrong century. She was a founding member and volunteer at Morgan Grace Fellowship, a Christian church in Morgan. Nancy’s strong Christian faith in the finished work of her Savior was a source of hope and peace during her last days.  

Nancy is predeceased by her parents and her brothers Wilfred, David, and Eugene. She is survived by her two sons; her daughter-in-law Christy Pettit-Mahan (Kenneth); her grandchildren Andrew and Christopher (Bernard), and Danielle (Gavin) Day and Lindsay (Benjamin) Roach (Kenneth); great-grandchildren Tala and Finley (Andrew and Jhuzen Jadormeo-Mahan), and Jaxon (Lindsay and Benjamin Roach); sisters Judith (James), Karen (Marshall), Deborah (Reyes), and brothers Ronald and William.
