Carol Elliott

December 31, 1935 — August 19, 2021

Carol Anne Hansen Clark Elliott born December 31,1935, returned to her Heavenly Father Thursday August 19, 2021 (85) while living in her home in St. George, Utah, surrounded by family.

Carol was born in Pocatello, Idaho to Hans William Hansen and Dorothy Leah Hansen Greco. She loved being the big sister to Jean (James Ostler – St. George, Utah) and Fay (Marvin Christensen – Malad, Idaho). The sisters remained close and loved visiting about each other’s families and activities of their children and grandchildren.

Carol attended and graduated from Pocatello High School in 1954. During these school years she met her future husband. Following high school, Carol married Albert Hugh Clark August 13, 1954 (45 years). Following Al’s death Carol found love again when she met and married Gerald Elliott (St. George Utah) June 1, 2000 (21 years). Mom loved the addition of the new family.

Mom felt that one of her greatest achievements was raising six children. Three girls and three boys.

Mom was talented in several areas. She really loved painting and shopping. She made sure that every grandchild received a painting or a afghan for their wedding and an afghan and crocheted receiving blanket. She made a lot of crocheted gifts for friends and family. With children grown, mom found enjoyment working as an office manager for a local soft water service company.

Carol was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and very much enjoyed serving in several callings including Stake and Ward Primary Presidencies, Teacher and Temple worker.

Mom had an unusual ability to remember family history which came to her naturally by way of her parents. Her mom and dad both had great memory recall especially when it came to family memories and photos. Mom recalled relationships, marriages, names of spouses and dates. It was especially fun to sit alongside her as she would tell you the names of each individual in photo album. She identified the location of where the picture was taken and stories of the individuals in the pictures.

Carol is survived by her husband, her two sisters, and her brother and sisters’ in-law. She is survived by her children: Catherine Aileene (Dean) Tyler of Wailua, Hawaii, Kendall Wayne (Vera Nelson) Clark of Brighton, Colorado, Abbalie Jane (Jon) Lamb of Pocatello Idaho, Jeffery Dean (Venus Baird) of Blackfoot, Idaho, Michael Darren (Lynda Simmons) Clark of Plainfield, Illinois, and Wendy Sue (Dave) Parish of Lihue, Hawaii. Her Clark posterity includes twenty-two (22) grandchildren, fifty-seven (57) great-grandchildren. Her Elliott family includes Lynn Spencer of Salt Lake City, Utah, Kathy Elliott (Stan) Hong of West Valley City, Utah, nine (9) grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Carol was predeceased in death by her parents, Hans William Hansen (1983) and Dorothy Leah Greco Hansen (1992), her husband, Albert Hugh Clark (1999) triplet grandsons, Brandon Michael Clark, Joshua Albert Clark, Nicholas Edward Clark (1981)
