Carolyn Smith Davies

Carolyn Smith Davies, age 84, passed away on Saturday December 26, 2020. Carolyn was born on April 17, 1936 in Fountain Green, Sanpete, Utah to Barton Henry Smith and Virginia Hardy. Carolyn married Lynn Leon Davies on June 13, 1958 in Cannonville, Utah.

Carolyn grew up in Henriville Utah, which is at the edge of Bryce Canyon, with her siblings. In 1954, she was honored to be selected as Miss Garfield County, a true beauty queen. She attended Dixie College, BYU, and the University of Utah where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. This is where she met the love of her life, Lynn. She has lived in Santa Barbara, Carlsbad, Mojave, Taft California, and Washington Utah.  She served a mission with her husband Lynn on Temple Square. Wherever she went, she made many friends. She loved her garden even though sometimes it didn’t produce the way she hoped. She was gifted with the ability to sew many things, including a wedding dress. She has helped mold the future generations, not only as a second-grade teacher and scout leader, but also as a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was known as a classy, well dressed, loving lady that will truly be missed.

  3. Dear Davies Family, We are so sorry about Carolyns passing. We have many fond memories with them. Lynn and Carolyn were such a great example to us of a celestial couple. They were a little older than us but we still celebrated our wedding anniversaries close as they were married one day later than us in the same year 1958. They married on Friday the 13 and ours was Thurs. the 12. We remember going to the open house at their home to celebrate their 50th. We made lots of quilts together in their home. We did visit them in the care center the end of January and took them the cute picture of her in her Lady Liberty and Lynn in his Uncle Sam costume that they wore in so many fun parades. We are blessed with the memories and blessed with the Gospel of Jesus Christ to know we will see them again and that you all as a family will be together again. Love and prayers to the family.
