Carol Taylor Spillett



Carol Taylor Spillett passed away on April 22, 2015 at Bee Hive Homes in Perry, UT. She was born in Ogden, UT on Dec. 25 1939, being a “Christmas Carol!” She was the eldest of eight children born to Lawrence Chester and Frieda Schmidt Taylor and was raised on the Taylor Family Farm in Farr West, UT. She married James Juan Spillett in the Logan L.D.S. temple on June 9, 1961.

After graduating from Weber High School in Ogden, UT, she attended Weber State, Utah State and Idaho State Universities before graduating from Brigham Young University with a B.S. in Special Education. Following her marriage to Juan, she lived in six countries (Ecuador, India, Iran, Chad, Mexico, and Australia) and six states (Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Maryland, Texas, and Idaho). She also travelled extensively, visiting all seven continents and more than 60 countries. Despite their many moves and travels, they maintained their home on the Spillett Family Farm in Rockland, Idaho for more than 32 years – before moving to Brigham City, UT in the fall of 2014, because of health problems.

Carol was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout her life. She held positions in the Primary, Young Women’s and Relief Society organizations and served as a missionary with her husband in the Mexico, Merida and Australia, Adelaide Missions, as well as on Stake and Ward missions. Ultimately, she served as an Ordinance Worker in the Idaho Falls, Idaho, Temple for four years.

She is survived by her husband, James (Jaun); siblings Bonnie (Kay) Pierce, Ileen (Max) Robinette, Janice (Brent) Foster, Sheldon (Suzanne) Taylor, Therin  (Roelene) Taylor, Kevin (Carolyn) Taylor, and Lynita (Gregory) Price; her five children, Cris Tina (Lyndon) Christensen, Rose Ann (Tom) Lunneberg, James Kreg Spillett, Sheri Elizabeth (Mark) Handly, and Jay Juan (Amber) Spillett, and 19 grandchildren.
