February 13, 1923May 10, 2018

Carol Cottam Moseley, age 95, left us to meet her eternal companion Thursday, May 10, 2018. Her children were around her throughout the months preceding her passing. She wanted us to know she wasn’t gone, she was meeting her date. Carol was born February 13, 1923 in St. George, Utah to James Franklin and Caroline Bunker Cottam, the original settlers of Veyo, Utah. She was a loving wife and mother who was devoted to her family. Carol is survived by her sons, Roger Allan (Marty Brodzik) Moseley, Russell Scott (Sandy) Moseley, Richard Cottam (Leslie) Moseley, 11 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband LTC Lonnie L. Moseley Retired, and son Paul Cottam Moseley. Carol was the last surviving member of her generation. Carol graduated Woodward High School as Valedictorian and editor of the school yearbook, class of 1939. Following Pearl Harbor, she raced to Reno, Nevada and married her sweetheart on December 13, 1941. She supported her husband and their family through three wars; WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. As the wife of a distinguished U.S. Army officer, Carol traveled the world and offered a warm home to many lonely soldiers. She was active in the LDS church, serving in many callings including Relief Society President. She enjoyed reading, gardening, knitting, collecting sea shells, and was a member of the Utah Quilt Guild. She had an incredibly sharp mind and remained well informed to the last week of her life, able to discuss current politics, world affairs, and finance in detail. Carol will be dearly missed. Funeral services will be held Thursday, May 17, 2018 at 11am, Big Cottonwood Stake, 10th Ward, 4930 S Westmoor Road, Holladay, Utah. A viewing will be held one hour prior. Interment and graveside service will be held at 10am the following day at St. George City Cemetery, 650 East Tabernacle Street, St. George, Utah. The family would like to offer special thanks to Rocky Mountain Hospice for their kind and caring service during the last weeks of her life. Also to all who have helped the family and befriended their mother. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Fistula Foundation in her name. (
