Alene was born to James and Doris Backman on August 9, 1952 in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was known for her zest for life, her spit-fire attitude, and her never ending love for her family and friends. She enjoyed reading with her morning coffee, karaoke, time in the garden, and overall, being outdoors.
She married the love of her life, Tony Lee Nyborg on October 6, 1979 in Elko, Nevada. They continued to build their lives together with their children, Jodi Ainger, Robbie Peterson, Melanie Vincent (Nate), and Jason Nyborg. They enjoyed spending time with their kids, twelve grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren ... For the most part anyway.
Alene passed away, peacefully surrounded by family on November 20, 2022. She was preceded in death by her parents, father-in-law Darwin Nyborg, her brothers, Jimmy and Tom Backman, brother-in-law, Craig Nyborg, and her sister, Lisa Clark.
She is survived by Tony, her mother-in-law Jeannine Nyborg, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and her siblings, Chris Taradash (Marty), Ron Backman (Barbara), Randy Backman (Theresa), and Kim Gallegos; who all meant the world to her.
Alene’s love for life and feisty personality was infectious to all those that knew her. Her contagious laugh will always be remembered.
