Carol Jean Call was born February 17, 1950 in Phoenix, Arizona, where she lived her entire life of 68 years. She passed away peacefully in her home, with her husband Gary and family surrounding her, on July 6, 2018.

Carol and her husband, Gary Call, were married and sealed for time and eternity in the Arizona Temple on July 19, 1968. Her entire life revolved around her six children, twenty grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. The past 40 years of her life she demonstrated incredible fortitude and strength as she endured life-altering physical challenges with a smile! Grammy, as she was known by her family, shared her many talents of crafts and baking with all those around her. She was a loving and devoted wife, mom, and Grammy. She was always thinking of others and giving selfless service with a compassionate heart. Carol was an active and committed member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many capacities, including as an ordinance worker in the Mesa Temple in Arizona.

Carol is preceded in death by her father, Merril; son, Ron; grandson, Caleb; and great-granddaughter, Avaya. Her legacy will be carried on by her husband, Gary; their children, Rob (Ruth) Call, Wendy (John) Castle, Diana (Jordi) Ferre’, Gary (Sharon) Call, and Josh (Miriam) Call; as well as the rest of her posterity – including her mother, Merlene and her brothers, John and Bob.

A funeral service will be held Thursday, July 12, 2018 at 10:00am, preceded by a visitation at 9:00am, at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 800 W Chandler Heights Rd, Chandler, AZ 85248. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the LDS Missionary Fund.

    Gary when I first started in the temple you made me feel right at home. Then I noticed you made everyone happy and feel at home. You are amazing. It wasn’t until later that I understood about Carol. You are special and now she can be her. Love you.

    Gary. It was such a privilege to know you and Carol. She was always so positive about my singing. I know she must be skipping and running now. She has finally been released from an injured and painful mortal body. There is a lot of rejoicing on the other side of the veil. I will continue to keep you in my prayers and thoughts, Gary. Carol is just on the other side of this earthly veil waiting for you to be reunited again with
    Joyful happiness n perfect health. Nancy Draayer

  • Gary, I’m so sorry to hear about Carol. I had totally planned on coming down today for the funeral but I’m not going to make it and I feel bad about that. You are such a great man and I wanted to support you in some little way by being there. You are in our thoughts and prayers. We love you Gary!

    Dear Gary and family, We are so much better people for having known Carol and rubbing shoulders with all of you. Your lives bring us light, hope, and joy – and most of all LOVE – all qualities of the Savior that you exemplify day to day. Gordon & Janis Hall and family

    Rob and family,
    Codolences to your family upon the death of your mother. I didn’t know your mother Rob but I am sure she was an awesome mother. She is at least out of her misery now and in a better life than us not far from us the veil is very thin. At least you will see your mother again and be reunited as a family. My sympathy to your family prayers for your family.

  • I’m so very sorry for your loss. I have no doubt that God will remember her and keep her memory safe. He will surely be glad to bring her back to life in a perfect world when suffering will be no more and we will all welcome back our loved ones that are asleep in death. (Revelation 21:4 & John 5:28, 29) May our loving Father bring your family the peace and comfort only He can provide.

    Carol taught me how to crochet. Her love of crafting was contagious, and I have been using that skill for over 27 years now. I loved her and hope you all are feeling peace and comfort at this time of sorrow. All our love. XOXO
