Carol Mae Sauls Davie passed away peacefully at home on December 29, 2021 surrounded by loved ones. She was born February 15, 1937 to Phillip Lamar and Rhea Gardiner Sauls. She grew up in the Salt Lake area and attended Granite High School.
Carol, lovingly referred to as “Nana,” was the center of the family. She worked hard to raise five children and later helped take care of grand- and great-grand-children. She was tirelessly devoted to her family and always put her kids’ needs ahead of her own.
Nana was optimistic, genuine, and a go-getter who never shied away from an adventure. Her joy for life was obvious and contagious. She was quick to smile and laugh and never met a person she couldn’t talk to. Her house has always been the family gathering place, and in it, she was the life of the party.
She loved being outdoors, working in her yard, and caring for her horses and a long list of spoiled family pets. Together with her kids, she spent many summers in the Uintahs at the Defa Dude Ranch in Hannah, Utah. They made lasting memories there that she spoke of fondly, even in her last days.
Nana leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion to her surviving family and friends: Children, Ronald “Butch” (Kayla) Blatnick, Terrie (David) Atwood, Toni Hackford, Bobbie Casper, Mick (Lisa) Davie, twelve grandchildren, twenty great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her big brother, and partner-in-mischief, Jim (Helen) Sauls.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her mother, Rhea Sauls, her sister Sherrie Vance, her son, Randy Blatnick, her son-in-law, Tab Hackford, her first husband, Bud Blatnick, and her partner, Frank Cloward.
A Celebration of Life is scheduled for 1:00 PM on Tuesday, January 11th, 2022 at Larkin Sunset Gardens, 1950 East Dimple Dell Road (10600 South) in Sandy. Online condolences welcomed at www.larkincares.com.
