Nancy Jo Hamner, affectionately known by loved ones as Rose or Rosie, was a radiant beacon of love, compassion, and creativity that brightened the lives of everyone around her. Born on the 5th of September, 1953, in San Mateo, CA, Nancy Jo was a humble soul whose passionate creativity found expression in her elaborate quilts, beautiful embroidery, and intricate crafts, all of which she lovingly shared with those around her.\n\nNever forgetting her roots, she carried the warm memories of her life in Folsom, Citrus Heights, and Sacramento, California, as she made a loving home in Pleasant Grove, Utah. Nancy Jo was a devoted wife to her husband, Craig Hamner, since July 1, 1972, and a cherished mother to Keri Johnson, Michelle Yarwood, Steven Hamner, and David Hamner. She found her greatest joy in the company of her beloved grandchildren and her dog Gizmo, who were her world. Her faith in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was a guiding light in her life, offering her hope and strength. As stated in Psalms 46:1-3, "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble." This verse was a testament to her unwavering faith and belief that Heavenly Father would always take care of her.\n\nNancy Jo's life was a testament to the power of love and the beauty of humility. She had an uncanny ability to make people believe in themselves more than they believed in themselves. Her kind heart and deep love were a comforting presence, and she left an indelible mark on everyone she met. She was preceded in death by her father, Royce Welch, and her mother, JoAnn Moore, but their legacy continues through the lessons and values she passed on to her family.\n\nThe viewing will be held on Monday, September 25, 2023, at 10:00am MDT at Nelson Family Mortuary, followed by the funeral service at 11:00am MDT.
