Carol had a great love for the outdoors and all the beauty it provided. She loved to go to the mountains (“the ranch”) and camp out in the luxury of her 5th wheel. She and Wes would hunt and fish for their vacations. She was active in sports, playing on the city girls’ basketball team. She never missed a chance to go the boy’s football or wrestling matches and shouted the loudest. She was active in the LDS church up until she couldn’t due to health problems. She was in the stake YW presidency, and served an LDS mission at the Manti Temple.
Funeral services will be held November 13, 2013 at 11:00 am at the Hinckley LDS Chapel. There will be a viewing prior, 9:00-10:40 am, for friends and family. Burial will be in the Sutherland Cemetery.
The family would like to thank those friends and family that gave support and care to Carol in her time of need. We would also like to thank Casa De La Luz hospice for the care they gave her.
