Carol Lee Shreeve Hodson Obituary
1/31/37 ~ 9/3/18
Fruit Heights, UT - Carol Lee Shreeve Hodson, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and dearest friend, returned to her heavenly home on Monday, September 3, 2018, after passing away peacefully in her sleep. Throughout her beautiful 81 year journey, Carol was the embodiment of motherhood, integrity, service, patriotism, lifelong learning and love. Carol was born January 31, 1937, in Ogden, Utah, to Thomas Leland Shreeve and Melba Russell Shreeve. She was adored by her parents, particularly by her father, who read to her nightly. Tragically, he suffered a stroke and passed away when Carol was only 17, but she exemplified his love for books throughout her life. Carol was extremely well read and owned an extensive library. What's more, she made it a priority to read to her children around the table each night.
Carol met her soulmate, James Val Hodson while attending Ogden High. If John Adams had his Abigail, Val had his Carol. Together they raised five children. Carol was a progressive thinker far ahead of her time. She encouraged her children to pursue multiple talents and secured the best teachers for them in every field. Carol was passionate about the arts and immersed her children in theatre, symphonies, opera and museums. A cherished memory is when Carol would accompany the children on the piano as they sang their favorite songs from the "Sound of Music" and "Oklahoma."
Outside of her family, her passion for politics governed most of her life. If there was a pressing issue, Carol ensured that her community was in the know by leaving a flier on each doorstep. She received a certificate of appreciation from the State of Utah/Republican Party for her over 30 years of faithful service as a county and state delegate.

Carol is survived by her husband: Val Hodson; four children: Stephanie (Kyle) Garrett, Jennifer Whalen, April (Ralph) Sorbonne, Camille (Tracy) Bessinger; 12 grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her son, James Leland Hodson and his wife Kathy Hodson.
Funeral services will be held Friday, September 7, 2018 at 2 p.m. at Lindquist's Layton Mortuary, 1867 No. Fairfield Road. Friends may visit family Friday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. at the mortuary.
Interment, Kaysville City Cemetery, 500 E. Crestwood Road, Kaysville, UT.
