Carolee Fielding, age 80, passed away on January 1, 2024. She was born on August 22, 1943, in Provo, Utah to Fay and Grace Walker Fielding. \n\nAt six months Carolee’s fontanel (soft spot on head) closed. Something that normally doesn’t happen until a child is two. The doctors in 1943 suggested that the closure may have kept her brain small. Carolee had areas of mental disabilities but also areas of brilliance. \n\nCarolee could show you in her atlas where the different states and countries were. And yet she couldn’t read. She knew all of her family’s birthdays. She could write it down, but couldn’t verbalize the dates. Carolee loved her country and enjoyed wearing patriotic attire. She loved music and enjoyed making up dances to her favorite songs. \n \nCarolee was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her mother taught her the song, “I am a Child of God” when it was first published in 1957. She had a firm knowledge that she truly is a child of God. She blessed the lives of others wherever she went. She made people feel loved and that they were her favorite.\n\nCarolee enjoyed being able to go to RAH (Recreation and Habilitation) with their weekly programs of bowling and activities. She was able to go on trips to Disneyland, Seattle, Memphis and Hawaii through this organization.\n\nCarolee enjoyed working in various workshops that were tailored toward meeting the training needs of those with mental handicaps. She did such things as shred paper, put together craft kits and put together the nuts and bolts for assembling furniture, fold towels for gyms and clip threads off newly made clothes. And she loved socializing with her friends at her work.\n\nCarolee was preceded in death by her parents, Fay and Grace V Walker Fielding, and her sister, Bonnie Joan Fielding Reid Chantry. \n\nShe is survived by her sister, Barbara Loy Fielding Olsen, her brother, Garth Fay Fielding and wife Ruby Fowles Fielding, her sister, Sue Fielding Reber, as well as 30 nieces and nephews and their spouses and their children and her many beloved cousins.\n\nAn evening viewing will be held on Friday, January 5 from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at Olpin Family Mortuary located at 494 South 300 East, Pleasant Grove, Utah. \n\nFuneral services will be held at 10:00 am on Saturday, January 6, 2024 at the Timpanogos 7th Ward building; 315 East 500 North, Pleasant Grove, Utah.
