Nan attended schools in Santaquin and Payson. She was always surrounded by family and friends and enjoyed life to the fullest. Her laugh was very contagious and wonderful. She found out early that she had a gift of arranging flowers. She shared that gift with many friends and people that did not know her. Her Christ-like personality would light up anyone that surrounded her. She gave freely to those she could help throughout her life in various ways.
She belongs to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She held dear to her heart the blessings of being sealed to her husband on April 13, 2005 in the Provo Temple. She was able to travel to many places around the world mostly with her daughter Cindy and friends. Mom loved the mother and daughter, sister, and friend trips we were able to take her on. She especially loved Russia and loved the people there.
She worked as a cook for the Nebo School District for 10 years. She owned and operated the Family Tree Restaurant with her son Jesse for many years until she retired and her daughter Leslie purchased it. A great cook she was and shared that gift with many people in the Santaquin community for years.
She is survived by two daughters, Leslie Ann Broadhead (Val), Kim Lorraine Broadhead (Keith); two sons, Jesse Wayne Smith (Cori), Danny Burnell Smith (Susan), all of Santaquin; a sister, Barbara Jean Bean, a brother, William George Burnett, a brother-in-law, Cleil Thayne Smith, all of Santaquin.
