Carol Dean Larsen Moses

BURLEY – Carol Dean Larsen Moses, a 75-year-old resident of Burley, died Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018, in her home, after a 12-year battle with breast cancer.

Carol was born May 5, 1942, in Ephraim, Utah, the youngest of six children born to Earl Valgean Larsen and Norene Althea Lewis Larsen.

In 1945, the family moved to Pleasant View, Utah, where she attended her primary and secondary schooling. She graduated as a salutatorian from Weber County High School in 1960. She attended BYU where she majored in French, minored in art, and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1968. Carol later pursued a Master’s degree in curriculum development from Idaho State University, graduating in 1997.

On June 12, 1980, Carol married Dennis J Moses in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. She had known Dennis since their missions in France and Belgium, but patiently waited 17 years for their timing to be right.

Carol was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served as a missionary in the Franco-Belgian Mission from 1963-1965. She also faithfully served in many positions throughout the church over the years.

Carol was a natural teacher and leader. She taught at T.H. Bell Junior High, North Ogden Junior High, and Weber High School in Ogden, Utah, and at Minico High School in Rupert, Idaho. Over the years she taught English, speech, art, reading, and French. She also worked for the LDS Church as an editor of the church curriculum manuals and international magazines.

More than anything, Carol enjoyed being a mother and grandmother to her four children, four stepchildren, and 24 grandchildren as she supported them in their many activities. She also enjoyed painting, family history, and singing. She was a scholar of church history and church doctrine.

She is survived by her four children: Deanna (Julian) Ziegler of Burley, Lisa (Bill) Mullins of Bowling Green, Ohio; Jonathan (Hannah) Moses of Burley, and Katherine (Adam) Hope of Burley; her four stepchildren: Ken (Georgia) Moses of Sicily, Italy; Gene (Liza) Moses of Washington, DC; Lina (Aron) Moses-Belka of New Orleans, Louisiana; and Jason Moses of France; siblings, Gerald (Lois) Larsen of Pleasant View, Utah, Myrna Anderson of Lincoln, California, Sheryl Northern of St. George, Utah, and David (Marlene) Larsen of Newton, Utah; eighteen grandchildren; six step-grandchildren; and her father and mother-in-law, Jesse and Cherril Moses of Burley.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband; brother, Jim Larsen; and brothers-in-law, Clair Anderson and Jim Northern.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, January 13, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – Burley West Stake Center, 2420 Parke Ave, in Burley. Burial to follow at 2:30 pm at the Norton Cemetery in McCammon, Idaho.
