Nedra Nuttall Blumenthal passed away peacefully on Friday, March 13, 2020 in her home in Henderson, Nevada. Nedra is survived by her son Stephen E. Blumenthal, Heber, Utah, her older sister Shirley Child, Seattle, Washington, her younger sister Jane N. Sacco, Oceanside, California, her nephew David Baxter, Seattle, Washington and her niece, Kathy A. Sacco MacDougall, Las Vegas, Nevada. Nedra was born May 18, 1930, to Ross and Helen Nuttall, in Payson, Utah and lived in Salt Lake City, Utah for many years before moving to Las Vegas, NV.

Nedra loved her work at Utah Power and Light and retired after 30 years of service. She was an avid golfer and played with many women leagues where she developed long-term and deep friendships. Nedra traveled the world and most recently enjoyed a vacation in Africa with her family where she walked with the lions. Nedra was deeply devoted to her family and enjoyed the vigor of living life to the fullest every minute. Nedra's motto was "Always say yes to every invitation." Nedra was the life of the party, made visitors feel welcomed, and enjoyed a beautiful home surrounded by her favorite things. We ask you remember Nedra in living color and raise your glass to celebrate this beautiful and amazing woman. In lieu of flowers, kindly make a donation to a foundation of your choice.

Nedra was such a kind woman, super sweet and always smiling. I had the pleasure to be her next door neighbor and look after her and her house when she traveled. She was always smiling. She is truly missed not just by me, but my family as well. Rest in love Nedra! Love, the Else family.

My thoughts are with Steve and the rest of the family at this time.
I have some great memories of Nedra, she was a class act with a wicked sense of humor. I had the pleasure of playing golf with Nedra and Steve 3 years ago at Wasatch State park. She made us play 18 holes on the mountain course and didn't cut us any slack lol. Steve and I gave up at around the 15th hole and just rode the rest of the course cracking a couple of cool ones while Nedra played on. That lady could hit a ball always down the fairway. RIP, I'll miss you

My sincere condolences on this wonderful woman's passing. She became not only my landlady for several years but an instant friend, and confidant.
I have thought of her with many smiles and good memories of chatting as she passed my door or as she was busy with yard work over the years after her move to Nevada.
I will always remember her kindness and generosity, and that smile that came from her soul and radiated through her eyes and laughter. May your hearts be light as I'm sure she would want it that way. I raise a glass of wine in her memory.
