Olympus High School Class of 1967 - Latest News


10-01-2021 - Classmate Linda Taylor passed away September 28, 2021

Linda Taylor – age 72. Beloved daughter, sister, grandmother, teacher, and friend passed away suddenly on September 28, 2021. Linda was fun and intelligent and interesting to be around; she loved people and was a loyal friend. She was a comedian and she was always the life of the party. She could also be serious and was a mentor and minister to many, and she taught by example how to live a worthy life.

She was born July 7, 1949, in Salt Lake City to Vernon James Taylor and Marian Brown. She was the third of five children: Robert Taylor -deceased, Barbara T. Granger-deceased (Jim), Kaye T. Madsen (Russell), and Dell V. Taylor (Denise). She was raised in Holladay, Utah. She also lived in Curitiba, Brazil, with her family for three years as a teenager.

Linda graduated from Olympus High School. She earned a Bachelor's degree from BYU and a Master's degree from the University of Utah in Psychology and Special Education. She was a school teacher to inpatient children for seven years at Primary Children's Hospital. She later changed her focus to computers and worked in software development, quality assurance, and documentation, for various companies, and retired as a business analyst and project manager at United Health Care.

Not content to stay home, she took on extensive schooling and earned a Master Gardener Degree. It was put use in the Garden Center at Home Depot.

In early days she was a fierce and talented athlete; she enjoyed competition and just getting out there. She was able to teach, coach, and referee many sports. She had to set aside participation, due to arthritis and injury. She never stopped being competitive, but she had to find other places to excel. She was a gifted musician, and many of you will remember her playing her guitar and singing in that beautiful voice. She was a gifted songwriter.

Linda had many health issues and trials over the years, but she persevered. Even after dozens of surgeries she had an ever-optimistic point of view and was looking forward to returning to her part time job.

Linda loved her family. She served her parents as a caregiver for many years as they aged. She was a grandmother to three generations… she was Grandma Linda, a FUN Grandma! Her 'kids' made her grin from ear to ear. Her influence and love will bless them forever.

Linda always put up a wonderful and unique Christmas tree. Each year she invited friends and neighbors to enjoy the fun decorations and amazing Nativities. She loved reading, family, movies, friends, music, travel, and she was constantly learning something new. If she could make you laugh and cheer you up, then her day was complete.

She lived what she believed every single day. She was a talented, well prepared, and thoughtful teacher. Linda was very generous and lived a life of kindness and service. She had integrity and was honest. She had great faith in Jesus Christ and loved God. She was devout in her faith and was well versed in the scriptures. She is a shining example of enduring to the end.

Viewing: Mon., Oct. 4 6:00-8:00 p.m. at 4930 S. Westmoor Rd. (1725 E.) Holladay, Utah.

Funeral: Tues., Oct. 5, 2021 11:00 a.m. 4930 S. Westmoor Rd. (1725 E.) Holladay, Utah. Viewing one hour prior to services.

She married Lowell Scott Baggaley on December 27, 1968 in the Salt Lake Temple. They were blessed with 12 children throughout their marriage. 

Ellen was a devoted mother. She taught her children to play the piano, and encouraged them in all of their talents. She adored all of her forty grandchildren, and took the time to make each of them feel special. 

She was an accomplished pianist and was passionate about music. She began teaching piano lessons as a teenager. She studied music education at Brigham Young University and the University of Utah. Ellen taught piano lessons to hundreds of students over her lifetime and enjoyed seeing them grow in all areas of their life. She also worked as a professional accompanist. A highlight of her life was accompanying the Canyon View Chorus for twenty five years in which many of her own children sang. 

Ellen was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and loved serving in the church throughout her life. 

She was a passionate reader and an active member of her book club. 

Ellen was a friend to all animals, and had a canine companion for most of her life. Her dogs were always a treasured member of the family, and were rarely found very far from her side.

05-08-2021 - Classmate Dev Nielson passed away May 3, 2021

Norman "Dev" Nielson

Bountiful, UT Norman Dev Nielson, "Dev", age 71, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on May 3, 2021 in Bountiful, Utah surrounded by his immediate family. 

He is survived by his wife, Vicky Owens, their three children, Ryan (Jaimi), Tyler (Annalisa), and Jennifer. In addition, he is survived by his five grandchildren, Maxwell, Owen, Zane, Olive, and Naomi. He is also survived by his brother Todd (Robilyn). 

Dev was born in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 27,1949, to Norman Gayle Nielson and Frances Bates (Nielson). He worked in the banking industry for the entirety of his career where he specialized in branch management and business banking. Dev and Vicky both attended Westminster College, where they met and fell in love. Vicky was the love of his life and they were married on August 4, 1972. Dev and Vicky built their lives in Bountiful, Utah where they raised their children who were the true joy of their world. 

Dev was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend with a deep passion for sports—especially baseball. As a young boy of 10, 11 and 12, his talents in baseball garnered him a coveted spot in the Little League World Series. He was also an All-State shortstop for Olympus High School and later played baseball for Westminster College. His personal athletic gifts were passed on to his children and he never missed on an opportunity to be their team coach across a variety of sports. Dev spent countless hours in the backyard with his children helping them discover their own love of sports and refine their skills. As a spectator, he was an avid fan of the New York Yankees and the University of Utah (football and basketball). As a committed University of Utah season ticket holder over many decades, he rarely missed a game. 

Dev was extraordinarily hard working and maximized his strengths in everything he did. He enjoyed gardening and proudly kept an immaculate yard with the help of his wife. He could be found picking up hundreds of leaves one-by-one which he confessed was "therapeutic." He had a deep knowledge and fascination with birds and enjoyed basking in the sun simply observing nature. Dev was a voracious reader and took it upon himself to write a book report after every completed book, even up until the time he passed. He enjoyed playing golf, traveling, and listening to music like Chicago, Santana, the Eagles, and the Moody Blues. He also attended many concerts with his wife and children. Dev was the ultimate family man and made every effort possible to support his family, by attending almost every school and extracurricular event. 

Dev had an inspiring gift in his connection with people and genuinely loved all manners of personalities. Almost everyone who came in contact with him considered him a true optimist. As a seasoned listener, he had a way of making those around him feel unique and special—hanging on their every word and asking inquisitive questions. He often told stories about the people in his life, reveling in how great of a person they were. He never forgot a name or face. His smile was contagious and brilliant. He had a sense of humor to uplift anyone with his jokes and silly expressions. Dev was incredibly present and patient with everyone. He always made time to play games with his grandchildren and friends. He had such a diverse personality, and loved to truly talk about world matters, spiritual topics, sports statistics, books, and other current affairs. He offered well-informed insights on a myriad of matters. He lived well, learned eagerly, and taught lovingly. 

He will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him. His spirit will always be with us and our love for him forever in our hearts. 

The Nielson family will receive friends and family on Monday, May 10, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. (viewing) at Russon Brothers Mortuary, 295 N. Main St. Bountiful, Utah and on Tuesday, May 11, 1:00 – 1:45 p.m. (viewing) and 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. (chapel ceremony) at Russon Mortuary followed by a graveside service at 3:00 p.m. at the Bountiful City Cemetery.
