Tiffany Marie Thomas Nordgren 1987 ~ 2011

Tiffany Marie Thomas Nordgren, 23, of Magna. Our precious star returned to her Heavenly Father May 2, 2011. Born August 29, 1987 in Panguitch, UT. Daughter of Keri Thomas. Tiffany's close bond with her Mom and sister Autumn, will forever be treasured. In Tiffy's words they were the "Three Musketeers". Strong willed and goodhearted, Tiffany was an instant friend to any stranger. Tiffany attended Cyprus High School where she met the love of her life, Todd Nordgren. After spending many years together, they were recently married on April 16, 2011. Given the chance, Tiffany would have made a wonderful mother. Her lively spirit earned her the love and attention of her nephews who will sorely miss her. Tiffany loved spending time with Todd and their dogs, being outdoors, going camping and fishing. Tiffany cherished the closeness she shared with her Aunt Teri and Uncle Richie who will carry on with the shared memories in their hearts. Gratitude and love is due to Tiffany's bishop, and the missionaries that showed her kindness in her times of need, and to help her find peace as a member of the LDS Church. Gone too soon, Tiffany will be missed terribly by her family and friends. Tiffany is survived by her husband, Todd; loving mother, Keri Thomas; father, Johnny Julander; step-father Dan Howe; sister, Autumn; mother and father-in-law, Jeff and Judy Nordgren; grandma, Robin Blubaugh (& spouse); uncle Richie and Teri Gainer; along with numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Tiffany is preceded in death by her grandpa, Al Walkinshaw whom she loved dearly, and nephews, Luke and Landon Georgell.
