Nesa Hendrickson Booth

On Monday, April 19, 2021, Nesa Hendrickson Booth, loving wife, mother, and grandmother passed away peacefully at the age of 82 surrounded by her loved ones.

Nesa was born on April 9, 1939, in Richfield, Utah, to Daryel and Georgia Hendrickson. She received her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Utah State University in 1951 and was a beloved teacher in the city of Las Vegas for many years. On December 5, 1964, she married the love of her life, Lloyd Booth. They raised two sons, Brett and Scott, and one daughter, Julie (Frehner).

Nesa loved to voraciously read fictional novels, spend summers at her cabin in Pine Valley, bake seasonal goodies, and spend time with her children and grandchildren. She served in numerous callings in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her favorite callings were ones where she was able to mentor the youth of the church.

Nesa was a positive influence on all who she came in contact with; she was well known by all of her children’s friends, and she lovingly made the kids of the neighborhood feel at home whenever they were at the house. On many occasions the questions from the kids focused around when the next batch goodies were being made. A kinder, gentler soul was not to be found, but the grit and determination of a strong woman survived her entire life.

Nesa was preceded in death by her father, Dareyl Hendrickson, her mother, Georgia Hendrickson (Johnson), and her husband, Lloyd Booth. She is survived by her three children, Brett, Scott, and Julie (Frehner), and six grandchildren.

  3. I am so very sorry you lost your mom! I missed calling her on her birthday but thought about her all that day. So many memories of Nesa in high school and then living with her here in Vegas. Merv introduced her to Lloyd and we had good times doing things as couples. My sympathy to you!!

    1. She loved you and Merv Sherie, and without you she never would have been our mother. Thank you so much.

  4. We have had the pleasure of knowing Nesa for twenty years. We live in the same neighborhood and have enjoyed our many visits and contacts with her. Nesa and I were visiting teaching partners for many years. We offer our condolences to her family and know your hearts are broken with her passing. She was a regal lady and friend and loved her family deeply. We will miss her laughter and friendship.

  5. Sorry for your loss! Your family is in my prayers during such a difficult time. Nesa was like a second mom to me for many years. I spent a lot of time at the Booth’s home. Growing up across the street, Lloyd and Nesa were always welcoming to me and taught me many life lessons. They have and always will hold a special place in my heart.

  6. Julie, Bret,t and Scott,
    Words cannot express how sorry I am to hear you have lost your dear mother! I enjoyed her friendship for many years – going to church activities, movies, lunches, and dinners. I will miss her friendship and fun little laugh until we met again. My deepest sympathy and love to your family.

  7. The funeral was very nice. . . All of you did a good job of expressing your love and gratitude for a wonderful Mom, Grandma and Friend. I loved her Carmel and sugar cookies! Sending hugs and love your way at this time.
    Jenn & Sam
