Annabelle Nielsen Wiki – Annabelle Nielsen Biography
Annabelle Nielsen of Highland, Utah passed away Tuesday following a hiking accident. A spokesman for the church says that she and five other missionaries serving in the Alpine German-Speaking Mission were hiking when Nielsen slipped and fell.
Nielsen had been serving as a missionary since July 2019.
Nielsen, who played high school tennis at Lone Peak, did not have the same disruption many experienced by many other missionaries serving outside their home countries during the pandemic. The church temporarily sent home and later reassigned the majority of foreign-serving missionaries, but kept in place those serving in two dozen European missions.
Nielsen, who graduated from Lone Peak High School in 2017 and studied at BYU before beginning her mission in July 2019, was serving in the Alpine German-Speaking Mission.

A 20-year-old Utah woman died when she slipped and fell down a “steep incline” while hiking in Switzerland on a Latter-day Saints mission. Annabelle Nielsen, of Highland, was with five other missionaries Tuesday when the accident happened, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints said.
“We express our sincere condolences to her family and loved ones,” spokesman Daniel Woodruff said in a statement.

“Annabelle was a sweet, sweet young girl, just a wonderful young woman,” Lyman said. “We’ve known her almost her whole life. Just fun, fun to be around, very kind and loving, very active. The family is struggling, as anyone would, but keeping the faith.”
On July 1, Nielsen expressed her belief in the Latter-day Saint doctrine of eternal families in a Facebook post.
“I’m always thankful for my family!” she wrote in German. “They are truly a blessing. I thank God nearly every day for them and for the support I get from them. I LOVE my family and know we can still be a family after death. This is possible thanks to Jesus Christ.”
“She had a great desire to serve a mission for the Lord,” Lyman said.
“She spent all those months in an apartment learning a new way to do missionary work and was very resilient with that,” Lyman said.
