Lesa G. Carter Flake

Lesa G. Carter Flake, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and sister returned home to her Heavenly Father on April 25, 2021. Lesa was born on May 5, 1968 to S. Gene and Marilyn J. Carter of Provo, Utah. Lesa spent most of her childhood days working on the family dairy farm, playing with neighborhood friends and cousins, and learning how to cook and sew by both her mother, grandmother, and granny.

Her schooling included attending Sunset View Elementary, Dixon Junior High School and Provo High School. Lesa graduated from Provo High School and Provo LDS Seminary in 1986. Lesa also received her Medical Secretary Certificate in 1992.

Lesa enjoyed working as a secretary and salesclerk, but the best job she ever had was that of being a wife and mother. Lesa married Aaron W. Colby on October 7, 1989 and faced many challenges as her and Aaron tried to start their family. After 10 years of marriage, they were finally blessed with a beautiful daughter, they named Tanya Alese Colby, but unfortunately Aaron passed away just a few years later.

Luckily in 2007 Lesa met a wonderful man named Jon Jordan Flake and they were married on September 8, 2007. They united their lives and children, and together were blessed with a son of their own, Jordan Gene Flake, named after his father and grandfather. Lesa and Jon spent many wonderful years together as they raised their children and enjoyed being a family. Lesa especially loved to travel the world. She enjoyed many cruises, vacations, holidays and outings with her friends and extended family.

Lesa was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Lesa will be incredibly missed by so many!

Lesa was preceded in death by her parents, S. Gene and Marilyn Carter, and first husband, Aaron Colby. Lesa is survived by husband Jon Flake, daughter Tanya, son Jordan, and stepchildren, William, Darrell, Sharee, Felicia, Jacinda, Jonathan, Jeremiah, and Monson, as well as her brother Jason (Amanda) Carter, sister Julie (Alex) Bradshaw, sister Wendy (Danny) Newman, and her grandchildren.

Funeral Services will be held on Friday, April 30, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at the LDS Chapel located at 3111 West 1390 North, Provo, Utah. Friends and family may call prior to the services at the church from 9:30-10:45 a.m. Interment will be at the Provo City Cemetery under the direction of Walker Sanderson Funeral Home of Provo.

Special thanks to friends Nikki Christensen, Officer Mark Jackson, Bishop Knowlton, and the many family and ward members who have given so much love and help to the Flake family.
