Carol Lee Kerns is dancing with angels today. She went home to be with our Lord Tuesday, July 2, 2013, after a long and courageous fight with COPD. You can breathe now Mama.

The loving and caring staff at the Moab Regional Hospital took such loving care of her during her last days. Thank you so much! For two-and-a-half years previously, she had been taken fantastic care of by the staff at the Canyonlands Care Center. Some of the staff there became very dear friends to her and she loved you dearly.

Carol was born in Monte Vista, Colo., on April 5, 1942. She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Jewel Gann; husband, Robert “Buzz” Kerns; and two brothers, Ray and Bobby Gann. She left behind a brother, Mickey (Bev) Gann; son, Mickey Christian; daughter, Shelly (Troy) Brooks; nine grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. She was loved and will be missed.

A memorial service was held Monday, July 8, at 4 p.m., at Spanish Valley Mortuary.
