    She was a bright light to all who knew her. As a cousin growing up with her I always looked forward to her summer visits. Spent many hours of fun during those days. She had many talents. She will certainly be missed.

    I am so sorry for the family. The next world has a spirited, vivacious and funny new arrival. She will be sorely missed on this side.

    Sis. Stephenson will be missed! She was so much fun to be around! One of my daughters was very frustrated trying to learn how to crochet! Sis. Stephenson took the time to try and teach her! I appreciated her love and patience! I love the Stephenson family and our prayers are with you!!

    So sorry to hear of Carola’s passing. She was a sweet lady. Glad I got to know her better when she lived in Layton and I was her babysitter. Prayers to her family.

  • I will miss you Carola even when we haven’t seen each other in awhile. You made us laugh and joyous times together. John you are loved and my prayers will be with you.
