Carolyn Carter, mother of five, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, died on Sept. 24, 2019.

After Carolyn retired, she moved to Moab in 2004 with her partner Richard Neumann. Prior to that, she spent several summers visiting her daughters who lived here. She became very connected to the landscape and colors of southeastern Utah and the Four Corners area.

During her time in Moab and the other places she lived, she made many friends whom she enjoyed greatly. Several appreciated and shared in her joy of cooking and trying or tweaking new recipes, or her joy in tending to her yard and gardens.

Carolyn gave her children and the generations that followed many gifts, such as her passion for all different genres of music and her support of her family’s pursuits and interests in music. She had an infectious curiosity about the culture, music and food in the places her family members lived and visited.

Carolyn will be remembered for her humor, friendliness and sense of community. Many will remember stopping by for an afternoon visit and her saying cheerfully, “Is it wine time?” as an invitation to sit with a glass of wine as the day faded and to share in whatever she had cooked.

Carolyn will be remembered and greatly missed by her family and all who knew her. It warms our hearts to have so many friends and neighbors inquire about her and offer stories about the times they shared with her as well as their condolences. Thank you for being part of her life and ours.
