Carolyn Walker

Carolyn Tuckett Walker passed away on January 1, 2023. Carolyn was born to John Willis Tuckett & Fern Ferguson on May 1, 1944 in Spanish Fork, Utah. Carolyn graduated from Spanish Fork High School and was an undergraduate at BYU. She had 5 sons, 21 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren.
Carolyn grew up in a very loving and close-knit family in Lake Shore, Utah. She was very athletic and loved being active in sports and especially in cheer leading. She enjoyed foot races and won most of them, often beating the boys. Carolyn was an exceptional cook and could come up with wonderful, tasty dishes even when on a budget. She loved spending time with family and extended family and loved having parties and visits with others. Any excuse to get together with her siblings and friends was a good excuse. Food and fun always followed her to these get togethers. Carolyn’s love for her siblings has always been one of the greatest things in her life. Throughout her life she loved them and spent time refining her relationships with them.
Carolyn married Robert Adams in 1964 and they had 3 sons. Several years later they divorced and Carolyn moved from Wyoming back to her hometown in Lake Shore, Utah.
Several years after her divorce she met Stephen Eldon Walker. Stephen and Carolyn were married on July 12, 1973. Carolyn and Steve were later sealed in the Provo Temple. They moved their new family to Bluffdale, Utah. Carolyn and Steve had 2 more boys giving them a total of 5 sons. Being a tomboy herself, Carolyn was a wonderful mother to these boys and allowed them to have many adventures. She also taught them to work, serve others, love the Lord, and be responsible. Carolyn taught through example and was a proper role model. In this household of all boys there were no chores based on gender, so the boys were taught to cook, clean, do laundry, and keep up the household as well as all of the farming and ranching responsibilities. Her teaching and training really became apparent with her sons as they went to college and served missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Carolyn & Steve moved their family to Sutherland, Utah near Delta in 1991. She worked at Droubay Chevrolet and at the M.E. Bird Center in Delta. She volunteered for the Daughters of Utah Pioneers at the Great Basin Museum. They finished raising their family in Sutherland and Carolyn remained there until her health required her to move in with her son.
Carolyn was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She had many callings and always strived to do her best at serving others. She was often seen kneeling next to her bed praying. When overheard in prayer she was always pleading for the welfare of her family and others around her. Carolyn’s 2nd son Clark was taken from this earth early in his life at the age of 7 years old. Her faith and knowledge that she would be reunited with him again was never in question. She became a stronger and better person and was able to bring comfort to others around her as they faced the loss of loved ones. She also enjoyed serving as a temple worker with Steve in the Manti Temple.
Carolyn is survived by her children, Robert Adams (Cindy), Gregory Adams (Amy), Russell Walker (Rachelle), Ryan Walker (Karen), 20 grandchildren, and 8 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her siblings, Bill Tuckett (Roberta), Janice Carter (Merrill), Dennis Tuckett (Dorothy), Joe Tuckett (Cheri), and brother-in-law, Erman Stone.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Stephen Walker, her parents, Willis & Fern Tuckett, her son, Clark Adams, grandson, Daniel Adams, her sisters, Cheryl Argyle and Maureen Stone, her brother-in-law, Phil Argyle, and sister-in-law. Linda Tuckett.
