Nanette Olsen Prindle

Aug. 12, 1952 – Aug. 16, 2023

Nanette Olsen Prindle passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her family on Wednesday, Aug. 16, 2023. She was 71. 

From a very young age Nanette knew she wanted to do hair. When she was only 4 years old she got a hold of her sister Connie’s hair and cut it off at her pigtails. She had a real talent for doing hair and would cut most of her family’s, friends’ and the missionaries’ that served in her ward hair. 

She was very giving of her time for anyone. She was a kind, compassionate, loving, funny lady, who loved being around her family and dearest friends. She was willing to go the extra mile for anyone. Nan always had a sixth sense about her and knew when someone was in need, and she would just show up. One of her favorite ways to say I love you and give you a hug from a distance was to give you homemade pajamas on Christmas Eve.

She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many callings.

Nanette married her husband, Gregory, and they had 51 wonderful years together. Weeks before she passed Nan was overheard telling Greg that they did a good job with their family and raised six great kids.

Nanette was preceded in death by her parents, Wilbur J. and Laura Ruth Olsen, of Lovell and sister Connie Olsen of Lovell. 

She is survived by her husband, Gregory Ray Prindle; son Jared (Lynne) Prindle of Lewistown and their daughters Caitlin and Nicole; son Justin (Traci) Prindle of Billings and their daughters Natalie and Elizabeth; daughter Aleaha Cruzan of Shepherd and her daughter Tamia; daughter Anna (Jacob) Barta of Lewistown and their sons Henry and Oliver; daughter Betsy (Jeremy) Hart of Billings and their children Liliana and Ethan; son Josh (Sara) Prindle of Shepherd  and their children Joshua, Wyatt, Tanner, Ragan, Aspen, Kennadie and Chanel; sisters Dianne (John) Paxton of Lovell and Norma (Rex) Allen of Lovell; brothers Jon (Gladys) Olsen of Gillette and Randall (Violet) Olsen of Thermopolis; many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews; and a few great-great-nieces and great-great-nephews.
