Carol Jean Harding Powell

Carol Jean Harding Powell died peacefully in her sleep on April 27, 2013. She was born June 17, 1930, the daughter of Emma Jane Barton Harding and Royal LaGrande Harding. The family lived in Delta, Utah, the first seven years of Carol's life before they moved to Provo. Carol graduated from Provo High School.

She married Lynn Madsen Powell on August 3, 1949. She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during her lifetime.

Carol was amazingly driven to many endeavors. She sewed, knitted, croqueted, and painted ceramics. Then she graduated to more difficult tasks that she really enjoyed and excelled at - painting landscapes and making porcelain dolls (sewing all their clothes, of course). The unwavering and unconditional love she had for her family was the most remarkable facet of Carol's life and her family will remember her and honor her for her incredible wit, and her ability to laugh at a joke even if it was at her expense.

She is survived by her husband, Lynn Powell; daughter, Linda Kay Powell (Sorenson); granddaughter Lori Rochelle Sorenson (Sink) and her great-grandchildren Karly Sink and Zachary Sink.

The care that Carol received the last 5 years of her life at Willowwood Care Center in Holladay was overwhelming. The professionalism and compassion of the staff will long be remembered and appreciated by her family. Bristol Hospice was instrumental in the transition that Carol made to her final home with her Heavenly Father. Special thanks to Melany, Nancy, and Jayne and the rest of the amazing Bristol staff. They prepared the family for what was to come at every step of her transition to her final destination.

Graveside services for Carol's closest and dearest will be held at Provo City Cemetery, Tuesday, April 30 at 11:00.
