Carol Jean Collard Obituary
May 14, 1950 ~ Aug. 17, 2014
Our loving, caring, and spunky wife, mother, stepmother, grandmother, sister, aunt and special friend passed away from a lingering illness, surrounded by family, at her new home in St. George, UT on August 17, 2014.
She is survived by her husband Bill Collard, children; Jeanna Wang, Angie Garcia and Michael Gohlinghorst, stepchildren; Kent (Brenda), Annette (Travis), Tony (Wendy) and Candice, grandchildren; Kaylee, Dylan, Baily, Cheyenne, Madison, McKinna, Chloe, Charlie, and Myles. Carol was born in Fargo, ND to Harold and Ruth Lee (both deceased). She had six siblings; Pat, Gary, Mary Jo, Jimmy, Sandy, Donna, and many nieces and nephews.
Growing up in Casselton, ND she was always proud to be known as one of those "Lee Girls". Carol never let cancer identify who she was and lived every day to it's fullest! Very few people knew of the four victories over cancer she had won. She always bragged, "I never get a cold or the flu, just cancer". Everyone she met was left with a positive feeling about themselves and the world they lived in. She lived her life with class, dignity and a smile. Carol made everyone feel comfortable and important. She loved her husband, children, family, friends, and her extended family at Rowland Hall St. Marks School, where she worked for 25 years. She loved her cabin in Idaho, watching bear and moose at their critter spa, and cruising through Yellowstone on the back of the Harley. Carol Jean worked hard remodeling her home in Bountiful, helping Bill build their cabin, and recently designing and landscaping their new St. George home. She continued working and traveling to see family and friends up until being bed ridden just one short week ago.
We would like to express our thanks and gratitude to Dr. Anna Beck of Huntsman and Dr. Brian Tudor of Dixie Regional.
Funeral services will be Saturday August 23, 2014 at 11:00 am at Good Shepard Lutheran Church, 8575 South 700 East, Sandy, UT. A viewing will be held August 22 at Good Shepard Lutheran Church from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm and one hour prior to services on the 23rd. Interment will be at the Bountiful City Utah Cemetery.
Arrangements are under the direction of McMillan Mortuary 435-688-8880. Condolences may be shared at mcmillanmortuary.com.
