A devoted sister, aunt and friend, Carole Sullivan departed mortality to return to her eternal heavenly
home on March 6, 2020 in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. Born June 19, 1942, in St. Catharines, Ontario,
Canada, to parents William James Sullivan and Ethel (Pat) Elizabeth Collins. She was extremely proud of
her Irish roots and heritage. Carole came to Utah in her early 20’s on a vacation and fell in love with Salt
Lake City. It was an adventure that suited her desires to explore the world beyond her birthplace. After a
few weeks, she was to return home but decided to broaden her horizons academically and socially. She
telephoned her mother and asked her to send out her clothes as she was staying in Salt Lake. She
became a landed immigrant and found work at ZCMI as an assistant to a buyer and attended classes at
the BYU extension Center in the evening and strove to better herself which she did. She worked for the
next ten years for the Utah Girl Scout Council as the Camp Administrator and Director with responsibilities
over Utah, Idaho and Arizona. She then gained employment as National Marketing Director obtaining her
corporate real estate and securities license. She then handled some responsibilities on a contractual
basis after forming her own firm. Carole’s commitment to others was praiseworthy and knew no bounds.
Her gregarious demeanor and mischievous wit, combined with extra ordinary compassion, drew family
and friends into her ever expanding social orbit. Her integrity was impeccable and her greatest joy was
her family. Nurturing her nieces and nephews was her passion. They were her crown jewels and their
needs and petitions were constantly on her mind plus her grand nieces and nephews. Carole was a
family historian. She succeeded in doing genealogy for both the Sullivan and Collins lines. She published
a book, “From Ireland to Canada” regarding the Sullivan’s, and only missed one family reunion held in
Ontario, Canada in fifty years. Carole served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day
Saints in Tampa Florida during July 1981 to 1983, and served in many church callings. Her longest being
Stake Sports Director. Carole is survived by her four siblings, Maureen Barker, Sheala Sullivan Molnar,
Dean Sullivan, and Cathy Baraniuk. All from St. Catharines area in Ontario Canada, with 16 nieces and
nephews and 39 grand nieces and nephews. We wish to express grateful thanks to the Valley View 11 th
ward for their constant ministering and care, also heartfelt thanks to Symbii Hospice nurse, Christie Bilden
