Maureen (Cydi) Nielson Boorsma, daughter of Stanley G. and NaDine Nielson, was born October 28, 1938 in Salt Lake City, and returned to her Heavenly Father on February 25, 2009. She enjoyed a wonderful life experience here on earth, where she lovingly fulfilled a calling, working with her spouse in the Salt Lake LDS Temple, and served the Lord and many others through numerous other church callings. She had a strong testimony of the gospel and a passion for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren who lovingly called her "GG". Cydi accomplished much in her lifetime and will be warmly remembered and sadly missed by all who knew her. She leaves behind her eternal husband of 32 years, Terry M. Boorsma, of Tooele, UT. Cydi is also survived by her children; Cyndi (Curtis) Tadehara, Wendi (Mick) Olson, Krysti (LeRoy) Kollman, Kurt Johansson, Shawn (Carol) Headrick, 19 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, as well as four siblings; Kathryn Jones, Barbara Fenton, Karla Jettie, and Daniel Nielson.

Life timeline of Maureen Nielson Boorsma

Maureen Nielson Boorsma was born on 28 Oct 1938
Maureen Nielson Boorsma was 3 years old when World War II: The Imperial Japanese Navy made a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, intending to neutralize the United States Pacific Fleet from influencing the war Japan was planning to wage in Southeast Asia. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Maureen Nielson Boorsma was 17 years old when Disneyland Hotel opens to the public in Anaheim, California. The Disneyland Hotel is a resort hotel located at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, owned by the Walt Disney Company and operated through its Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products division. Opened on October 5, 1955, as a motor inn owned and operated by Jack Wrather under an agreement with Walt Disney, the hotel was the first to officially bear the Disney name. Under Wrather's ownership, the hotel underwent several expansions and renovations over the years before being acquired by Disney in 1988. The hotel was downsized to its present capacity in 1999 as part of the Disneyland Resort expansion.
Maureen Nielson Boorsma was 25 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
