Carolyn Eccles Schlosser, age 82, passed away peacefully due to COVID on December 18th in the presence of loved ones. She was born September 18th, 1938, in Salt Lake City and raised by loving parents Henry Price Eccles and Ella Elizabeth Clark. She was the youngest of 10 children, all of whom preceded her in death.

Carolyn was a lifelong learner. She graduated from South High in Salt Lake City and later completed a nursing degree at Brigham Young University. Carolyn attended St. Luke’s Hospital School of Anesthesia in South Dakota and became a nurse anesthetist. She accomplished her academic success while raising young children. Carolyn believed God led her to a career in anesthesia, and credits Him for her professional achievements which allowed her to buy a home, provide for herself and her four children as a single mother, and enjoy traveling.

Carolyn’s greatest joy was in her family. She lived for her children and grandchildren and patiently taught each of her children a work ethic. She taught them how to learn. There was no “Give up” in her, and she expected the same of her children. It was important to Carolyn that her family enjoy the riches of this life. She hiked with them through the national parks, took them to concerts, ballets, and operas. She believed all things testified of Christ, and as such, the experiences she shared with her children and grandchildren allowed her to share her belief in Christ with those she held most dear.

Carolyn was a member of the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her membership in her church allowed her to serve in a number of positions. She exemplified what true charity was and willingly gave of her time, and talents to help those in need.

Carolyn’s family wishes to acknowledge the meaningful friendships she shared throughout her lifetime. Carolyn was a great friend to many and in return she had great friends.

Carolyn is preceded in death by her parents, her nine siblings, one grandchild and one great grandchild. She is survived by her four children: Sandra Louise Christensen, Herbert Todd Schlosser, Anthony Price Schlosser, and Karen Diane Schlosser; 16 grandchildren, 33 great grandchildren and five great-great grandchildren.

A short visitation will be held, Monday, December 28, 2020 from 10:00-10:45 a.m. at Walker Sanderson Funeral Home located at 646 E. 800 N., Orem.

I have so many fond memories of grandma it's hard to decide which ones to to share. One that comes to mind when I think of her is the time that she took shawn, Kimberly and I to Yellowstone National park. I don't remember how long we were there but indo remember the countless hours sitting on the boardwalks waiting for a geyser to go off. While.we waited, we would play games. One game I remember was the guess the # game which involved using twigs. Someone would arrange the twigs in any shape and the rest would have to figure out which # it was supposed to be. The twigs were really just a distraction. The # was how many fingers the person had showing by the twigs. It took me forever to figure that one out. I remember having lunches at Whiskey flats picnic area. That's was her favorite picnic area. She even had a sign that said Whiskey flats that hung in her house. I remember having lunch at a picnic table by castle geyser and a herd of buffalo came wandering by. We all had to get up on the table. Grandma said hold very sti and don't make a sound. The buffalo were so close you could have reached out and touched them. That visit was such a wonderful experience to be able to share with her and Aunt Karen. I will be forever grateful to have those memories of her. I will miss grandma and I know I will see her again. I know she was welcomed by many loved ones and they are all watching over us and there to welcome us when it is our time. Until then grandma, rest easy . you!!

Carolyn was always one who stuck up for the right, no matter the consequences. When we were in anesthesia school, the Nun was to be teaching a class on the ethics of anesthesia. Instead, she was giving a complete lecture as to why and how we should all become Catholics, including baptizing babies. Carolyn stood up, folded up her notebook, and quietly said, "Sister, you are teaching a class on how we should all become Catholics, not on ethics. When you teach the class on ethics, I will come back to class. " She then quietly left the class. I took my notes and followed and was surprised to see Susie Brown, a Catholic, also pick up her notebook and say, "I agree with Carolyn" and we all left the class. This was brave of Carolyn, as well she knew that she must finish her anesthesia training in order to provide for her family, yet she did what was right.
