1939 — 2022

Carol Ann Boulware Laws Halladay was born on Oct. 22, 1939, in Winnsboro, SC to David Harrison Boulware and Cynthia Louise Branham. She had 14 siblings and graduated high school from Mt. Zion Institute. She served as a missionary in the Northwestern States Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She described it as a truly remarkable experience.

Carol was married to David Paul Laws of Provo, UT on July 14, 1962, in the Manti Temple. When David earned his PhD, she was so proud of him and felt that the degree was hers too. She later received her own diploma from BYU as a PHT (putting husband through). They had six children Paul (Becky), Renee (Armando), Byron, Jason (Wendy), Jared (Marinda) and Luella (Ben). David passed away on March 12, 1978, and Carol moved her young family to Utah. Her children were always her priority. She taught them by example to work hard, and to be kind and helpful to others.

Carol was blessed to find a new sweetheart in Hal L Halladay, and they were married on August 10, 1983, in the Provo Temple. They blended their families and she welcomed Halene, Brad, Brent (Kelli), Suzanne and Heather (Scott). Their combined posterity includes 11 children, 36 grandchildren, 30 great grandchildren and they expect a great, great grandbaby in August 2022.

Carol and Hal served a humanitarian mission in Jackson, MS and two additional missions in Los Angeles, CA at the Family History Center. She volunteered faithfully for church service throughout her life and never missed the opportunity to share her testimony. She loves her Savior, Jesus Christ, as He is her friend and Atoned for her sins.

Carol spent many pleasant moments cooking, sewing, reading, painting, gardening, and doing puzzles and handicrafts. She enjoyed time with her family and many friends. She loved life.

Carol passed away peacefully on July 4, 2022, truly celebrating freedom from the constraints of the mortal body. What a joyous reunion she had with loved ones!
