Carol Boley Herbert (26 September 1929 – 1 October 2011)

Contributor: DdraigGoch Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

"Carol Boley Herbert" Carol, 82, was born on September 26, 1929 to Glen Mackey and Mabel Elizabeth Breinholt Boley, in American Fork Utah. Siblings: LaBelle (Wes) Barry, Mackey (Joyce) Boley and Kent (Ann) Boley. The Morning Breaks the Shadows Flee …. Her children were honored to have spent the last days of her life with her, at her home, as she passed into the waiting arms of her husband Duane, and son Brent, Saturday October 1, 2011. Her "bags were packed" and she was ready and eager to go. Through our tears comes incredible joy, as we envision the reunion with her loved ones. Mom would often smile and say, "I've had a good life". And that she did! She married Duane B. Herbert and had seven "lively" children. It is amazing that such a quiet, reserved woman could have such dynamic, strong and influential children. We believe that she will get extra credit in heaven for putting up with us. She is preceded in death by; her Parents, Husband, son Brent D. Herbert, brother Mackey Boley, and Great-Grandson Joseph McMillan. She is survived by; her remaining 6 children; sister; brother; 30 grandchildren and 37 great grand-children. She also had the blessing of being a foster mom to Emerson Jimmy for 9 years (counting the time he served a full-time mission to Michigan. What a great son he was. We know that there were many times that she would have permanently traded her other children for Emerson. He was a happy person who always obeyed her wishes on the first request. He was a blessing to our family. Carol grew up in American Fork, Utah. After graduating high school, she worked at Geneva Steel. She married Paul Peters, they later divorced. Carol met and married Duane B. Herbert in the Salt Lake City Temple September 12, 1952. Faith, Music, Patience, Laughter and Hard Work are some of the many qualities Carol taught her children by example. Carol had a great love for music. She played the piano, organ and clarinet. She attended American Fork High School where she was a member of the Band and was the accompanist for the Men's Choir. She really enjoyed being in a class with all of the boys. She had the ability to sight read music, play by ear and she was one of those lucky people who had perfect pitch. Mom was never obtrusive - however sometimes in ward choir, she would quietly "hum" the correct pitch to others to help them out. She was so dedicated to ward choir growing up we thought that there was always an extra hour of church! When her 3 oldest daughters were young she would teach them to sing songs in three part harmony. They would perform at small neighborhood functions. She should get two extra credit points for this, 1st for sharing the love and performance of music to her daughters. And 2nd for being a miracle worker to get 3 young girls together long enough to get along and sing! Most Sunday nights were filled with visiting, laughter, singing and popcorn. Carol was a hard worker. Together with Dad they were a hard team to beat. They were always working on something. Late one evening, Mom had just finished putting up some fruit and had cleaned up the kitchen and had just sat down - probably after a 15 hour day. I asked her what we were doing next and she said nothing. Wow, I thought that was really something – to see her do nothing. That rarely was the case. She could make something out of nothing. We had a covered porch and we would run there every time there was a thunder storm. Why? We would sit on an old sofa, watching the "lightening show" and sing together. It was great! On our weekly Sunday drive to visit her mom in American Fork we would sing in the car. I guess they figured out that it was better than hearing us complain or argue! We have many great years playing basketball on the small court in our backyard. And to top it off, we had irrigation to play in every week. (Our backyard was the place to be in the summer). Dinner was always at 5 pm. Her cooking was the BEST! To mention a few of our out and then we could still play together. She was patient with us. There is nothing we can say that would describe just how "far and beyond" she went daily, to raise us the best she could. As adults we all have different personalities, but enjoy getting together – And laughter is the highlight of our time together. Much to mom's chagrin, it doesn't take much to get us going. Carol was an example of faith to all that knew her. She was obedient and always did what was asked of her in her church service. She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served, with Duane, as missionaries in the Massachusetts Boston Mission – Feb 1997-1998. And they served in the Canada Nova Scotia Halifax Mission as small temple construction missionaries. They supervised the building of the Halifax Temple in Canada. She served in many church callings but she was especially valiant in her visiting teaching. She taught us by her example. She created a gospel centered home. Her testimony, acts of service, and our memories of her are our greatest inheritance that she has left her family. Thank you mom, we miss you, we love you and are happy that you are with dad again. "Til We Meet Again"!
