January 12, 1932 ~ October 26, 2018

I, Carol Mae Shaw Higley passed away at the age of 86, on October 26, 2018, in Clinton, Utah. I was born January 12, 1932, in Salt Lake City, Utah. The daughter of Samuel and Ethel (Snow) Shaw.

I married Glen Lee Higley on April 19, 1948. Later it was solemnized in the Salt Lake Temple. The greatest blessing in my life was raising my children. I was always busy driving them to meetings, ball games, scouts, fishing, and dancing lessons.

I served in the auxiliaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

In one paragraph of my patriarchal blessing it says "He honored you by giving you some of his choicest spirits to come forth in this day" Nothing surpasses being a Mom.

I have a strong testimony of the Gospel. I have read the scriptures diligently.

My favorite hobby is to travel and see the beauty on this earth. I have been blessed with the opportunity to see many beautiful and interesting places and people. I have seen every state in America. I have visited Europe, Asia, The Middle East, and many of the Islands of the sea.

I am survived by, six children and four wonderful daughters- in-law, who are great mothers and wives. Sons, Glen Lee (Jill) Higley Jr., Clinton, Dennis R (Vickie) Higley, Midway, Kevin D (Cherie) Higley, West Point, Douglas B (Diana) Higley, Preston, Id; and Randy J. Higley Downey, Id. One loving daughter, Leslie G. Higley of Logan, Utah. By 33 grandchildren and 79 great- grandchildren, one great-great-grandchild. One brother, David (Deb) Shaw, Elko, Nev. "All of whom I love dearly".

I was preceded in death by my husband, Glen Lee Higley Sr.; one daughter, Debra Lynn Allred, five grandchildren: Scott, Donald, Mike, Penny, and Jenny, my parents, my sisters, Colleen, Nancy, and Francell.

The family would like to thank those who gave loving care at Country Pines and from Symbii Hospice.
