Vee Loreane (Williams) Carroll

July 13, 1932 ~ December 28, 2020

Vee Loreane (Williams) Carroll passed away peacefully at her home surrounded by her family on December 28, 2020 after a long, courageous battle with cancer. Vee was born July 13, 1932 in Durango, CO to Howard Williams and Amy Gale. She was the youngest of four children.

Her family moved to the Moab area where she attended school, graduating from Grand County High School.

Vee worked at a very young age as a switchboard operator at Midland Telephone Company in Moab.

She married her high school sweetheart, Robert Carroll, in 1950, and together they had four children.

After moving to Provo where Robert attended college, they returned to Moab where they made their home and owned and operated Carroll’s Archery. They later bought a working ranch in Paradox, CO and from there moved to Monticello where she lived until her death.

Vee loved gardening of all kinds, but flowers were her passion. She enjoyed watching the birds and wildlife in her yard.

She was quick to provide service to anyone in need and shared the bounties of her garden with family, friends, and neighbors.

Many other hobbies included cake decorating, quilting, canning, baking, floral arranging, and writing in her journal.

Vee dearly loved her family which included not only her own children and grandchildren, but her brother, sisters, nieces, and nephews.

Vee is survived by her husband Robert Douglas Carroll, Sr; sons Robert Douglas (Susan) Carroll, Jr, Ronald (Diana) Carroll and daughter Kristie (Doug) Whipple; grandchildren Hesper (Daniel) Chapman, Erin Carroll, Tyson Carroll, Heather Schaefer, Kama (Tony) Lucero, Keith (Tracie) Carroll, Cody Larsen-Carroll, Brittnie (Nate) Miller, Cortnie (Brad) Jarman, and Tiffanie Whipple; along with 14 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.

Also surviving are siblings Howard (Alma) Williams and Donna Oviatt.

Vee is preceeded in death by her parents, son Kevin Carroll, and great-granddaughter Ellie Jarman, along with a sister, Gloria McVicker.

Services were held Saturday, January 2, 2021 in Monticello with live streaming on Spanish Valley Mortuary facebook page. Burial at Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery.
