Our Dear Sweet Mother, Grandma, Great Grandma and Sister, Carol Satterfield moved onto her next great adventure from this world, July 16, 2021
She was born September 21,1933 to Elden Charles and Priscilla Hill Roberts in Salt Lake City, Utah
Mom was raised with brothers Richard, Bill, Bud (Eddie), Mike and sisters, Gwen and Donna who blessed her to be the Best Aunt to many nieces and nephews.
She was married to Ray Satterfield, for 63 years before his untimely passing November 2018 Together they raised 6 children.
She treasured her children. They meant the world to her. She had a very special and unique relationship with each one of them. She was very proud of their accomplishments in life .She treasured every moment she could spend time with them. Her love was unconditional for them.
She loved, adored and was equally proud of each and every grandchild she had. Their accomplishments were her treasures and boasting rights. When her precious 3 great grandchildren came along it just made her beam with pride. She turned into a kissing, hugging and extremely happy lady when she got to see them, she had so much laughter and joy with them she was deemed “ Funny grandma” it stuck because she was.
She was One of the greatest, funniest and loyal friends anyone could want to have, and to be her friend was a joy and honor. Those that were her very best friends were rare few between, and she held dear to her heart always and forever.
She LOVED her garden, worked for hours on end from sun up until sun down at times. It was “her therapy” and joy. Everyone adored her many varieties flowers that seemed to be in blossom from the beginning of spring to the end of fall. Her kitchen was her domain she was always making something; from baking cookies to fancy meals. She always made enough to feed an army, so she shared... She shared a lot. Many neighbors, friends and family benefited from her gracious sharing nature.
Traveling in her healthier years was very special to her and dad. Their place in San Philippi Mexico where they were extended stay "snow birds", always migrating there in winter /spring months and enjoying it as a second home. Trips to the family cabins have always been a Satterfield tradition with much joy and adventures. They shared a couple family cabins with dad's family for many years, but her proudest moment was when dad let her pick out the Ray and Carol Satterfield cabin up in Donnelly, Idaho in 2016. It was an accomplishment and gift they both were so proud to have gotten for their family.
They went up often with family before it became to much on their health to do it alone. So family stepped up and made sure mom and dad got to their cabin often in their last years. She was able to get up there several times a year, with dad, and after he passed with the gracious help of Sherrie and Rock until because of health reasons It was no longer possible this last year. Updates and pictures kept it in her heart though. She got what she wanted and needed from that cabin on the lake and the memories of her happiness will be with us forever.
She was spunky, and had a spicy sweetness about her, the best dam card player regardless of the game. She could wipe you off the table with Yahtzee, Skipbo, Rummy and more. She loved her game show channel to “ exercise my brain”
She was the best Confidant for her grandkids, they could tell her anything and know there was never any judgment or chance that the conversation would leave their time together. She was unconditional love, the best listener, the best advise giver, She never held back and told you what she thought, was the life of the party, the center of attention and couldn’t help but be best dancer when the music began, especially to her favorite Alan Jackson (#1 fan club member ) She would try almost anything at least once. A lot of Dynamite packed in a little 5 foot frame.
Preceded in death by her true sweet love, her husband Ray, son Jason Satterfield and daughter Carrie Smith. And by her parents, 3 brothers and 2 sisters. She is survived by her loving children Bob (Gloria) Satterfield, Sherrie (Rock) Smith, Tami Southam, Tom (Leslie) Satterfield, 12 adoring grandchildren, 3 precious great grandchildren. Her wonderful brother Bud (Carolyn) Roberts. Several nieces and nephews. Many friends and neighbors, all who cared for her deeply.
We would like to offer our heartfelt appreciation to Sally Brush, Julie, Ruth, Charlotte and all of Quality Home Health & Hospice. Also to the amazing loving care from Waterlily In Home-care group. Their friendship, love and delicate care for Carol will never be forgotten.
A celebration of her life will be held on August 21, 2021 at her home in her backyard from 11am to 2 pm Please contact family members you are familiar with for the address. The family is asking in lieu of flower that you donate to the charity of your choice in her name
What a beautiful tribute for your mom. I'm sorry I never met her because she sounds like fun lady and fun to be around. Beautiful picture you picked out with that 'let's go have some fun' and mischievous smile. Big hugs from Neil and me to you Sherrie, and all your family for your loss.
