Born: 7/13/1932, Durango, Colorado
Vee was born July 13, 1932 in Durango, Colorado to Howard Williams and Amy Gale. She was the youngest of four children. Her family moved to the Moab area and she attended school, graduating from Grand County High School. Vee worked at a very young age as a switchboard operator at Midland Telephone Company in Moab. She married her high school sweetheart Robert Carroll in 1950, and together they had 4 children. After moving to Provo where Robert attended college, they returned to Moab where they made their home and owned and operated Carroll’s Archery. They later bought a working ranch in Paradox, Colorado and from there moved to Monticello, Utah where she lived until her death.
Vee loved gardening of all kinds, but flowers were her passion. She enjoyed watching the birds and wildlife in her yard. She was quick to provide service to anyone in need and shared the bounties of her garden with family, friends and neighbors. Many other hobbies included cake decorating, quilting, canning, baking, floral arranging, and writing in her journal. Vee dearly loved her family which included not only her own children and grandchildren, but her brother, sisters, nieces, and nephews.
