Funeral services will be held at Fairview City Fourth Ward church January 15th, at 1 PM, with visiting time before the service from 11:30 to 12:30.
Carol was an amazingly classy and loving person. She loved you just how you came. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. She had a close group of friends and a whole lot of family.
Carol was a graduate of North Sanpete High School. She worked for Easter Seals at the Sanpete County Bookmobile Library in Fairview and in more recent years at the Fairview Museum where many items were donated from her family. She loved these jobs in her community.
Carol loved her family, animals, sewing, reading and words. She had a large vocabulary and if you asked what her favorite book was, she would say the dictionary.
Carol was preceded in death by her father and mother, George and Florence Day, her oldest brother Dennis Day, and her oldest sister Lazon Riddle Cox Sorensen. She is survived by her daughter Rayna (Troy) Prettyman, two grandchildren Ivy Nicole Kolb and Brady Lee Kolb; two step granddaughters, Jennifer Prettyman and Rachel (Matt) Blackwell. Four great grandchildren.
Carol is also survived by siblings: Nedra Sorensen, Charles (Glenna) Riddle, Tom (Sherrie) Day, Leon (Lorele) Day, Keith (Cindy) Day, and Nanette (Donald) Watson, as well as many very loved nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews, and cousins.

    Carol was quite the woman and very talented. In addition to Fairview Museum she also helped at the Spring City DUP Museum and it was fun to go in and visit with her. More recently she, along with her sister Nanette, was kind enough to help do a tied quilt for me which turned out so stunning. So sorry that she had so much suffering towards the end of her life but she is now having great reunions with lots of people (hope one of them is my late husband).
    Condolences to the whole family!

    Thank you Kaye. She was a busy woman, wasn’t she? I just couldn’t fit it all in! 🙂 She helped us get Brady’s first quilt on the frames while I was there. Aunt Nanette finished the binding for him, but other than that, he did it all. It’s beautiful!
    I’m sure she has said hello to Denis for you. 🙂 <3

    Growing up with Carol in Fairview was a blessing for me. We were close friends from kindergarten through our high school years. We were in the same ward so we had lots of fun experiences together….Sunday school parties including some at the Day’s home, sledding in the winter on Ruel Mower’s hill, and of course school activities. Carol was always fun to be around. I hope she has forgiven me from making her late for class in high school. I and someone else stood her in a large cardboard trash can from which she couldn’t get out as she was wearing a tight skirt.
    Our principal rescued her. I enjoyed a short visit with her just a few weeks before cancer took her life. She was very kind and friendly as she was her whole life. I’m so sorry to see her leave us. She will be missed.
