Nancy Marie Donaldson Brough

April 3, 1945 - November 17, 2011

Nancy Marie Donaldson Brough Apr 3, 1945 – Nov 17, 2011In loving memory, we recognize the life of Nancy Brough, faithful wife, mother, grandmother, and sister. She spent her last hours here on Earth on a date with her husband, showing us all by example how quality time spent with one’s spouse is one of the secrets to a happy marriage. She died unexpectedly of a massive brain aneurysm. She was born April 3rd 1945 to James and Freeda Donaldson in Gillette Wyoming, the baby sister to Jeanne, Carollyn and Christanna. She was a convert to the LDS church as a teenager and dedicated her whole life and heart with unwavering faith to the gospel. She moved to Ogden to attend Weber State College where she met her future husband, and eternal companion Lewis Brough. They were married in the Logan temple on June 21 1968. Nancy was the mother to five children. Nancy serviced as a ward Relief Society President, years as a primary teacher, and a Cub Scout leader seeing all three of her boys from little bobcats to Eagle Scouts. She was always engaged in her church activities and loved to be a part of the conversation. Nancy was also very active in the community and served 3 terms on the Riverdale City council and was dedicated to the idea of open space and Weber Pathway. She played a major role in the creation of the Riverdale river trail system. Nancy was proud of all her children and grandchildren and never let any one of them come or leave without a hug and an “I love you.” She is survived by her husband, her 5 children, James (Kimberly), Aaron (Tomoko), Annette, Nathan (Rachel), and Kristine (Ted).She was preceded in death by her mother and father and one grandchild.All of her children are forever grateful that she chose to be their mother. She was always grateful for her wonderful husband and showed her love to him through her daily actions and the twinkle in her eye when she talked about him. She will be extremely missed.Funeral services will be held Tuesday Nov 22 at 11:00 am at the red brick Riverdale 1st and 7th ward meeting house at 1056 W. 4400 S.

Nancy was serving as a Riverdale City Counsel member when I was involved with the Riverdale Youth City Government! She was always a great inspiration to me and all of us that were involved with the Youth City Government! She was always willing to step up and help us out where ever we needed it! My father was involved deeply with her fight for the Weber pathways! She was a true roll-model for me to know that if you believe something is worth fighting for give it your all! I watched Nancy succeed in so many ways with the city of Riverdale and feel great full that she was a part of my life! Nancy, you will be greatly missed!

Nancy was one of my best friends in my freshman year at the Moorcroft High School. LOst contact with her but was able to find her a few years ago and was excited, we only emailed each other once in awhile. I know that she loved her family and was a great person and lived her life for Jesus and her wonderful family. I am very saddened for her loss and my love, prayers, and thoughts of her family as they accept the loss of their mother, wife, and grandmother. Jeannie Portlock

What memories we have with you and Nancy in raising our children about the same time, in the same schools, and the same community. Nancy was a wonderful mother and wife. She was a very kind person and she will be missed by all of us. We offer our love to you Lewis and your family at this time and in the future. Stay close to your family and they will be there for you.
