Natasha Chelis Nielsen returned home on Tuesday the 13th of September 2022 at the age of 40. She was born on November 14,1981, in Murray, Utah to John Henry Nielsen and Vickie Mae Long. Though, she has left this world far too soon, her loving and caring heart has left a lasting impression on everyone who was lucky enough to have known her. Although she is gone, she will never be forgotten!
Natasha is survived by her mother, Vickie Mae Long, her brother Jeremy Draidfort (Angalee Draidfort), her husband, David Kenji Heninger, and their children, Taeja Villagrana, Tavia Verdin, Tracen Heninger, Trynlee Heninger and niece Aliya Draidfort. A loving mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and wife, she was passionate about helping others and completed her bachelor’s degree in Nursing (BSN,RN) from the University of Utah in April 2020. Her caring nature extended to all living creatures as she was always looking for ways to help and would donate to animal shelters in need across the country. Natasha was the backbone of our family, the glue that held us together, and she will live on forever in our hearts and memories. We love you and we miss you very much!
