Mary Carolyn Lesmeister was born April 2, 1949 in Morganfield, Ky., to Willie Preston and Daisy Lillian (Lovan) Stewart. She passed away on Oct. 15, 2009, due to complications of a stroke and heart attack.
Carolyn married Dennis Lesmeister in Moab on June 18, 1977. In her early years, she spent time raising her children and worked hard with her husband to establish a thriving business (The Bowen Motel).
After many years of hard work she was blessed with the opportunity to have a fair amount of spare time, which she chose to engage as an active member of the Beta Eta sorority and Special Olympics, which was very important to her son, Troy.
Her favorite pastimes were listening to gospel music, being an active member of the Community Church, cooking and, of course, for her own simple pleasure, to go shopping whenever possible. She also spent much of her time organizing family dinners and events and was the hub of this family. She absolutely adored her grandchildren.
Carolyn chose to add an addition to her household this past year, a puppy named Chloe, which she loved very much. Chloe always brought a smile to everyone’s face.
Carolyn will always be remembered and missed dearly by each and every one of us. We feel blessed to have had her in our lives and know that she will be with God for eternity.
Carolyn is survived by her husband of 32 years, Dennis Lesmeister, of Moab; two sons, Troy Scovill, of Moab, and Tyson (Trish) Lesmeister, of Moab; one daughter, Lynnette (Mike) Azarow, of Latrobe, Penn.; five grandsons, Jordan Randall, Kade Randall, Traykun Lesmeister, Trenton “Fuzzy” Lesmeister and Nicolas Jones; and two granddaughters, Ashley Azarow and Samantha Azarow.
Funeral services were held at the Community Church in Moab on Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 11 a.m. Interment followed at Sunset Memorial Cemetery. Services were under the care of Kimmerle-Hefner Funeral Home in Moab.
