Carol Murphy Meyer
July 15, 1933 ~ October 27, 2021
Raise a glass as she would want you to: here's to a woman who exemplified unconditional love. Carol Meyer was the life of any party. She passed away peacefully in her starter home of 61 years, so she didn't have to brave another winter.
Carol was a second mom to all her kid's friends and the first person her granddaughter's friends would ask about. Because at the end of the day, she was special to everyone, and everyone was special to her. Plus, they liked her more than us.
She had best friends from every walk of life and age range imaginable. For years she acted as a joke database that people would call before going out in an attempt to be as funny as her, but they could never quite top her level of humor.
From bra burnings to rubber trees, everyone has a Carol story. As she aged, she reveled in the fact that people would write her off as an innocent old lady so her wit could come as a bigger shock. From her weekly bar bingo adventures to the over-the-top hilarious cards, people were constantly laughing thanks to her.
She was a lover of movies (going weekly for decades), theater (see a show at the Grand Theater for her), spending time in her beautiful garden, and enjoying time with her family (blood-related or not). Most of all, she enjoyed her two greatest loves, her Utah Jazz and the Denver Broncos.
There will be a celebration of life slightly modified from her lifelong request to comply with fire code restrictions, instead of locking people in a room for 8 hours while only saying nice things about her. Her family is having an open house at her continuously welcoming residence from 1 to 6 on Saturday, November 6, 2021.
Carol is survived by her three children, Sylvia (Ralph), Shelly, and Steve, and her only grandchild, Kate (Robert).
They would like to thank all the wonderful people who have helped them care for their mother over the last three years. Carol is back to cracking jokes with her sister JoyAnn and their parents Fred and LaPreal Huser.
Carol loved flowers and gardening more than anyone, but her favorite thing was the joy it brought to others. Because of this, the family is asking that you spread joy in your world too. Send flowers to someone you love, go see a funny movie, go out to dinner with your family, see a show or donate to The Grand Theater it’s what Carol would want...well, that and a cookie.
