Gail and Nancy DeMille
St. George, Utah

    Surrounded by their loving family, Nancy DeMille passed away at her home in St. George  after a two-year valiant battle with cancer on March 20, 2024 while her ever-loving husband and lifelong partner Gail DeMille passed away at his home in St. George after a 14 year stretch with cancer the following day on March 21, 2024. It was a touching moment to witness Nancy hold out until the very end when she knew Gail would pass shortly thereafter, and he did so eagerly and willingly the next morning. Both will be reunited with their daughter Camille DeMille who passed away four years ago. 
    Gail and Nancy are survived by their grandchildren: Paris (Alexie) DeMille, London DeMille-Boronow; and six great-grandchildren. 
    Gail was one of five children: Jon (Mary Lou) DeMille (deceased), Alan (Nedra) DeMille, Kathryn (Leigh) Johns, and Marie DeMille (deceased). 
    Nancy was one of eight children: James (Eilene, deceased) Cloward Jr., Ashley (Cheryl, deceased) Cloward, Geary Cloward (deceased), Patricia (James, deceased) Dunn (deceased), William (Galina) Cloward, Barbara (Paul) Roberts, and David (Cindy) Cloward. 
    Born on November 1, 1948 in Monterey, CA, Nancy was full of life and energy. Her pure compassionate nature permeated any room she was in. Her love for her family was felt by those she talked to. She always lifted others up by making sure that they felt special and accomplished. One of her special gifts was her loving support; she ensured everyone that entered her home felt like family. She did this by cooking amazing meals, showing anyone and everyone her lovely plants, and giving her time to help those she loved. She enjoyed reminiscing over her early days with her husband, Gail DeMille in Monterey, where she fell deeply in love with him. She especially loved sharing those times with her grandchildren. 
    Nancy, being the ambitious person that she was, had a number of jobs throughout her career. She started out working at the Sevier School District Office. Nancy worked as a loan officer for a number of lending institutions and was a direct underwriter for HUD. Nancy ended her working career as a Realty Specialist for the Bureau of Land Management. 
    Nancy had a favorite poem which she had hung on the wall in her home, written by Sam Walter Foss. Nancy seemed to live by the content of the poem which reads as follows: “Let me live in a home by the side of the road, where the race of men go by - The men who are good, and the men who are bad, As good and as bad as I. I would not sit in the scorner’s seat. Nor hurl the cynic’s ban. Let me live in a home by the side of the road - And be a friend to man.”
    Born on June 22, 1946 in Richfield, Gail was the most compassionate and kindhearted man one could know. To almost a fault, he put everyone’s needs above his own. His selflessness was a power in itself. Gail had the most quick-witted sense of humor even up until his final days where he was cracking jokes that were unbelievably hilarious. He enjoyed spending time in his yard and took pride in the beautiful work he created so that he could enjoy the morning sunrises with his sweetheart in the backyard. 
    Gail dedicated his entire life to his family, and he was the most devoted husband, father, and grandfather. His love for his sweet wife Nancy was unparalleled; he created a bond and love that only the authors write about. This was just everyday life for them. Gail had a strong head on his shoulders and knew exactly what he wanted and that typically had everything to do with Nancy. There is no Gail without Nancy and there is no Nancy without Gail. 
    Gail served his country honorably in the military for two years in the early 70’s. After his time, Nancy and Gail moved to Utah where he worked for a title company in northern Utah before becoming the county assessor for Sevier County, Utah where he served diligently. Gail and Nancy also spent many years fixing up homes and enjoying their time spent together doing this. They were both highly intelligent, quick witted, and full of love.  We will miss Nancy and Gail very much.
