Carol Ann Burns

Jan 14, 2022

Carol Ann Burns, 79, passed away January 7, 2022, in Syracuse, Utah. She couldn’t wait to see the love of her life ­- Jerry ­- who passed in September 2021.

She was born on April 2, 1942, at Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah to Myron and Ruth (Egbert) Bodily. Carol grew up in Clearfield.

She married the love of her life Jerry on September 6, 1973, and they were later sealed for time and all eternity on August 8, 1987 in the Ogden Temple.

Carol leaves behind her son Kevin Brown (Billie), grandson Tyler Brown (the apple of her eye), siblings Grant Bodily (Judy) of East Layton UT, Barbara Norseth (Bill) of Roy, UT, and Roger Bodily (Cathy) of Hooper, UT. Carol also leaves behind four nieces, two nephews, eight great-nieces, eight great-nephews, one great, great-nephew, and one great, great-niece. Carol was preceded in death by her Husband (Jerry), parents (Myron and Ruth), and a great-nephew (Mac).

After graduating Davis High School in 1960, Carol began her career with the IRS. Jerry’s Air Force service took them to Okinawa, Japan, and Clovis, New Mexico. Carol fulfilled the role of an Air Force wife. After 20 years of service, Jerry retired from Hill Air Force Base in 1978, making Clearfield their home.

Carol spent most of her life as a homemaker and babysitter for her great-nieces and nephew. She was a lifelong caregiver, spending her life taking care of family and doing things to help others.

Carol was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Clearfield 23rd Ward and she loved her visits from the Ward neighbors, who were her second family. The Clearfield Literary Guild kept Carol active, serving as The President for many terms.

Quilting was a favorite activity for Carol. She taught quilting, helped others learn to quilt, and continued to make beautiful quilts until a short time before her passing.

The family is thankful for the extraordinary staff at Raintree Assisted Living in Syracuse. Carol loved the staff and their car and love made her final months comfortable and happy.

A celebration of Carol and Jerry’s Lives will be announced for friends and family at a later date.
