    Carolyn Liddle Visser returned to be with her eternal companion Richard on Sunday, September 19, 2021. A long-awaited reunion (20 years) that we are sure was followed with seeing her mother after 33 years and father after 76 years. We celebrate her happiness and are relieved that she is no longer suffering. We love you Mom and are grateful in our faith that you are happy and surrounded by love.

    Mom was a woman of many talents and interests. She was active in church callings, cub scouts, PTA, sewing, crafting, youth soccer, and choir- to name a few. She was an eager learner and always willing to try new things. She celebrated Christmas all year long and donated trees to the Festival of Trees for over 20 years.

    Carolyn is survived by her seven children: Diana Gogan, Carolea Smith, Cheri Frost (Todd), David Visser (Holly), Matthew Visser (Tami), Jeremy Visser (Shelly), and Benjamin Visser. She has 19 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.

    Funeral Services will be held Tuesday, September 28 at the Taylorsville 19th Ward house, 2030 W. Chateau Ave. at 11:00 a.m. A viewing will be held the evening prior from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Larkin Mortuary, 260 E. South Temple, and at the church Tuesday from 10:00-10:45 a.m.

    Mom and Dad- enjoy your empty nester time together, we look forward to seeing you in good time!


    Carolyn was my favorite cousin. We would see each other about once a year when we would travel from Oregon to Salt Lake on vacation. It was always a treat when we would spend time with Carolyn and her mom (my favorite aunt). Always wished we could spend more time with them. Peace be with you.

    Oh Carolyn! I am happy and sad at the same time. So happy that you can be reunited with your beloved Richard and also relieved of all the earthly challenges and pain you endured BUT sad for the rest of us who can no longer enjoy your adventures and your unique presentation of them. Rest well sweet sister. You may have left our presence but will never be lost to our minds and hearts. Thank you for such good memories. You are a truly loving soul. Shalom Aleichem my friend. Till we meet again. ✡️💜💕

    Dear Diana, Carolea and all of the Visser family,
    I am so very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I have wonderful memories of our families getting together and playing at your house as a child. Your mom was always so kind and patient and such a wonderful friend to my mom, Karen. I can only imagine the wonderful reunion in heaven she is having with her parents and your dad. I pray that you all feel peace and her presence nearby.

    Richard and Caroline were my favorite people. They supported myself and all the kids during soccer for years. I couldn’t have done it without their wonderful support. Love them dearly.

    Carolyn was such a beautiful soul. She had much to teach which was done very well indeed. The last time I saw her, she appeared so tired. It is with much gratitude she was known for over 20 years. I am sure she is well blessed with the greatly needed rest she had earned with a loving husband, loving family, and friends in a realm of great love and peace.
    You are missed, Carolyn yet there is peace you no longer suffer from the several physical aliments you bore for so many years.
    There is a prayer the earthly family is comforted.
