Carolyn May Dunn Gibb, loving wife, mother, and grandmother passed away at her home at 4:30 p.m. on September 8, 2017. She was born in Murray, Utah on October 28, 1943 to Ralph and Dorothy Ann Witheral Dunn.
She married the love of her life, Grant Lowell Gibb on June 24, 1966 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. Carolyn and Grant just celebrated their 51st Wedding Anniversary this year. Carolyn met Grant through mutual friends at the Terrace Ballroom in Salt Lake City where she and her friends went dancing on weekends.
Carolyn graduated from Jordan High School and was a member of the Charlonian Drill Team. Carolyn went on to attend Brigham Young University where she majored in Elementary Education and was a member of the “Angel Flight” Drill Team. After graduating from BYU, she taught school for 30 years in the Nebo School District. Carolyn loved to sing and was a member of the “Mapleton Chorale” directed by Ryan Murphy. Carolyn especially enjoyed playing golf with her husband Grant and meeting new friends while golfing at different courses throughout Utah. Carolyn loved to laugh and was always trying to be positive.
She fought so hard to the very end as she set an example of how to live and die with faith and dignity. Her family and friends prayed for a miracle and the miracle for Carolyn was that she passed away peacefully with no more pain and suffering.
Carolyn is survived by her dear husband Grant, her son David and his wife Amy, her daughter Jolynn Gibb Carter, and six wonderful Grandchildren, McCall Gibb McCombie, Sydney, Connor, Jadyn and Ryker Gibb and Jaxson Carter, all of whom she dearly loved. Carolyn was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Margaret Dunn and Barbara Tueller, and baby brother Robert. Carolyn and her family give thanks to wonderful friends and neighbors who all helped during her illness. They also thank the doctors at the Huntsman Cancer Center and the staff who attended her at the CNS Hospice.
