Beloved mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend, Carol Parkinson Buie, passed away at her home in Salt Lake City, Utah October 2, 2004. We know that she has had a glorious reunion with loved ones who preceded her in death, particularly her husband, Bob; her sister, Rae; and her parents.
Carol was born November 26, 1924 in Salt Lake City, Utah a daughter of Marcus Taggart and Edna Neuberger Parkinson. She was raised in Salt Lake City, graduating from East High School. Carol Married Robert Earl Buie July 6, 1946 in Salt Lake City. They were later sealed for time and all eternity in the Salt Lake Temple.
An active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Carol was the epitome of Christ like love and service. She spent many years serving in the Young Women and Relief Society organizations. However, Carol's greatest role in life was that of mother and grandmother. She created wonderful memories of Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays, and summers at Lake Powell. She unselfishly served others and always put the needs of others before her own. She will be fondly remembered for her sense of humor, her strength in adversity, and her devotion to her Savior, Jesus Christ. Her passing leaves a large void in the lives of her children and grandchildren.
She is survived by her best friend and daughter, Kay Buie of Long Beach, California; sons and their wives, Kent and Connie Buie, Scott and Leianne Buie, Mike and Patrece Buie, Todd and Jackie Buie, all of Salt Lake City; 18 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; sister, Joyce Lucero; and many nieces and nephews.
Words cannot express the gratitude we have for Kay, Todd and Jackie for the loving care they gave our mother during her final weeks. We also thank Inspiration Hospice for their support and service.
