Carol Ann Moody

April 14, 1949 ~ May 21, 2020

Carol Ann Hall Moody was escorted home to Heaven by Ron on May 21, 2020. She was born on April 14, 1949 and adopted within days by her parents, Albert R. and Annie A. Hall. Six months later, Albert and Annie also adopted Carol’s brother, Gene. When people found out that the two children were only six months apart and asked her father, he would answer with a wink “fast work” and then chuckle. Carol was raised in the Sugarhouse area and attended Rosslyn Heights Elementary, Hillside Jr. High and Highland High School where she graduated in 1967. Her father was a pilot for Frontier Airlines, so the family went on many trips all over the United States. Her mother was a Registered Nurse who stayed home and took excellent care of the family. After attending LDS Business College, Carol moved to Palm Springs, California where she lived with her “second family” the Halls. She soon ventured out on her own (in the middle of the night) with a little help from her cousin, Kent.
Carol went on to work at the Desert Hospital as a Unit Clerk in the ER which she thoroughly enjoyed. Soon after her move to Palm Springs, Carol started attending church there and met Sister Doris Moody. Little did she know at that time that she would soon find the love of her life. Doris had mentioned that her son, John, was serving his LDS mission in Scotland and she asked if Carol would like to write to him. John and Carol corresponded throughout his remaining year in Scotland. Three days after his arrival home, he asked for Carol’s hand in marriage and the two were married three months later in the LA Temple. This was truly a marriage “made in heaven”.
The couple bought their first home in Palm Springs and lived there just over a year. After their first son, Robert, was born, the family decided to move to Utah, feeling that it would be a good place to raise their family. Three more sons, Rick, Ron and Roger, were born into the family. Carol felt so blessed to be a mom. While the boys were growing up, Carol chose to stay home. She helped out by taking care of other children in her home and then later in childcare centers. The family first lived in Sugarhouse. They then bought a house in Sandy where Carol’s father lived in the finished basement apartment for 12 years until he passed away a few months after breaking his hip. They then moved to South Jordan where they built a home. Soon realizing that this house was not a good fit to do the “grandparent thing” they moved into the basement apartment of Roger and Hilary’s home back in Sandy.
The joys in Carol’s life have been her dear husband, John, their sons and their families. The toughest time in Carol’s life was in September 1997 when their 21 year old son, Ron, died from suicide. She has been awaiting their reunion for a long time. Carol was a constant supporter of the LGBTQ community long before her eldest son, Robert came out to them when he was 17, they all had her heart. She was so thankful to be a Nana to such perfect grandchildren, Alexander and Olivia. They have always been such a delight for her. Carol was thankful for all she had learned in her life and for those lives that have touched her so profoundly.
Carol is survived by her husband, John; sons, Robert (Glen), Rick (Laura), and Roger (Hilary); grandchildren, Zander and Olivia; and brother, Gene (Barbara) Hall.
