Victoria Jean (Nation) Bell, 74, passed away peacefully on March 25, 2024, at New Horizons Care Center with her daughter by her side.
She was born February 11, 1950, in Greybull to John J. Nation and Laura Abraham Nation.
Vicky grew up in the Lovell area. As teenagers, she and her sister Laurel loved dancing and listening to Elvis Presley. As a young woman she supported her family in rodeos, and she loved to craft and bake. She and her family enjoyed camping and hunting in Sunlight Basin.
Later in life she moved to Las Vegas and was an assistant manager in a souvenir store. After several years in Las Vegas she moved to Utah, where she found her love for landscaping. Twelve years ago she moved back to the Big Horn Basin to be closer to family and friends.
She was a proud loving mother to Amber Leigh Nation and Charles Levi Moore. She enjoyed being outside, having many family gatherings, which included listening to music and eating delicious food. She loved her grandchildren, great-nieces and great-nephews with her whole heart. She shared her love of Evis Presley and John Wayne. She loved teaching her family how to play canasta even if she occasionally cheated.
She was preceded in death by her parents, son Charles, sisters Laurel Mae and Catherine Ann, along with many family and friends.
She is survived by her daughter Amber of Laramie; brothers John D. (Bonnie) Nation of Lovell and Jerry R. Nation of Powell; and grandchildren Shawn Michael Moore, Stefanie L. Haenisch and Jakob J. Haenisch, along with many, many damn nieces and nephews blessed to have known her.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
