Carol Janet Stokes Taylor

September 6, 1938 - May 28, 2015

On Thursday, May 28, 2015, our beautiful, loving wife, mother, sister, and grandmother, Carol Janet Stokes Taylor, passed away peacefully in her sleep. She was born September 6, 1938, in Ogden UT to Loyal C. Stokes and Gladys V. Stone. She graduated from Ben Lomond High School. On March 30, 1956, she married her loving husband of 59 years, William Larry Taylor, and they were later sealed in the Logan Temple on August 6, 1965.

She loved flowers and worked at Ogden City Floral for over 25 years. She faithfully served many callings for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, callings involving the youth were her favorite.

Carol loved her family more than anything. She loved to spend time going on adventures with them any chance she could get. She would do anything for anyone. She always had a smile on her face and a kind word to share. She loved, laughed, and lived life to the fullest. She will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her husband William Larry Taylor; her 5 children, Cathy Familo, LeAnn (Drieu) Bott, Bradley (Denise) Taylor, Lori (Kirt) Van Natta, Shelly (Duane) Park; 21 grandchildren; and 22 great grandchildren.

Preceded in death by one grandson Daniel William Taylor, two sisters, and both of her parents.

Dear Le Ann, I'm so sorry about your mom. I wasn't able to come to the viewing tonight. Please know that I'm thinking about you and praying for you and your family. It's hard to lose your mom no matter how old you are. I pray that the Lord's sweet healing Spirit will bring you comfort and peace. May you also feel comfort from thinking about the happy memories you have with her. With deepest sympathy, Nancy Field
