Carol Weddington passed away November 25, 2023, in Bountiful, Utah. She was born November 6, 1940, in American Fork, Utah to John and Vivian Peters. Shortly after her birth, her parents moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. Her mother took her to Sacrament Meeting one Sunday, hoping the Bishop would give her daughter a baby blessing. That particular Sunday Elder David O. McKay was visiting the ward. The Bishop asked Carol's mother if she would like to have Elder McKay give the baby the blessing. Of course, she agreed and it was done. That commenced Carol's life of faith and devotion to the Savior Jesus Christ.
Her school years were all in Provo, Utah, where she graduated from Provo High School. During that time, she formed a close relationship with a group of girls they called “The Gang”. Each one had special talents but collectively they were together in many uplifting and good activities. From twirling batons in front of the marching band at the parades on University Avenue, to swimming in the river up Provo Canyon, to planning school activities. That relationship continued for many years with annual four day “get-togethers” in Park City and St. George.
In 1959 Carol met Bob. Carol was a wonderful dancer and Bob was smitten. But Carol needed some time before she agreed to get married. That wonderful event took place on August 12, 1960, at the Salt Lake Temple. Following graduation from BYU in 1961, they moved to Los Angeles, California. But Bob's Army Reserve Unit was called on active duty and they ended up in Fort George Meade, Maryland, where a son, Michael, was born. Returning to Los Angeles, their second son, James, was born. They returned to Utah for employment opportunities and settled in Bountiful where their daughter, Karen, was born.
Carol was a wonderful seamstress and enjoyed making clothes for her children. She also made numerous quilts. Sunday dinners were special times for the family. Carol loved working with the Young Women and in the Relief Society. Her commitment to the Savior Jesus Christ gave her great peace and happiness. For many years she served in the Bountiful Temple. She and Bob also served missions in Independence, Missouri, and the Nauvoo Temple.
Carol is preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by Bob, her husband of 63 years, sons Michael (Kim) and Jim (Michelle), daughter, Karen (Michael), eight grandchildren and five great grandchildren, her brothers Steve and Jeff (Carolee) and a sister, MarJean.
