On Monday, Oct. 22, an angel left this world for a better place. Carolyn was born in Murray, Utah, 75 years ago. She lived a life of love and devotion to her husband Kay - whom she married in the Salt Lake LDS Temple 57 years ago - and to her kids and grandkids.
The Guest Book is expired.
Her beloved mother June Cardall Smith died when she was 7. She was blessed by a wonderful new mother Glenda Winget Spencer Smith when she was 9. After moving countless times in her childhood, she settled with Kay in Bountiful for 13 years after which they moved to North Logan where they have lived for the past 42 years.
She lived a life of full of compassion and service to others including volunteering at the hospital and the temple. She loved people and could always brighten their day and make them laugh. She enjoyed her work as a receptionist for Dr. Ralph Binns for 15 years.
Carolyn's family includes devoted and eternal companion Kay Baker; son Mikel Baker (deceased); daughter Shawna (Robert) Haider; son Kurt (Sally) Baker; grandchildren RoShawn (Joshua) Jones, Brady (Rachel) Haider, Holly (Jace) Barraclough, Jordan Haider, Samuel, Sarah and Andrew Baker; great-grandchildren Anellina, Carsten, Stockton and Savannah; brothers and sisters Verl Smith (deceased), LaMar Smith, Kenneth Spencer and Glenda Ledgard.
The family truly appreciates the loving care and compassion given by the people at Legacy House and Dr. Russell Hirst.
